Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love helping people however I can plus this is getting me out of the house for some much needed exercise.

I am employed with the Oklahoma Forensic Center, formally known as Eastern State Hospital, in Vinita for 26 years now. I drive by the cemetery several times every day. I have always enjoyed touring cemeteries and looking at the old headstones. Once when driving through the cemetery and admiring all the Memorial Day flowers I told my 3 year old grandson that his great-grandpa had a sister there but I always had trouble finding her. He gave me such a sympathetic look and said, "Well granny, that's probably because she is way down under the ground somewhere." I thought what a brilliant conclusion for a 3 year old that has never been talked to about death.

Bair Stone in Fairview Cemetery
Hello Jackie,

I'm working on my family genealogy and have hit a dead end...no pun intended. Charlie F. Bair was my grand uncle and you photographed his stone earlier. All we know about his wife is her name Vinnie Marshall. I do know she was born Dec.23, 1899 and died Dec.15, 1988 in Vinita. They were married Nov.22, 1952 in Harrison, Arkansas. I don't know if she was married before or anything else about her but I would appreciate if you could look for her stone in the cemetery. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Millikan family graves
Hello Jackie, I noticed you have several of my family members located in the Military Cemetery, Mayes County, OK. They are my Great Grand Parents and Great Aunts and Uncles. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to transfer their care over to me. I am always adding information as I find it. The names and memorial numbers are:
William Henry Harrison MILLIKAN #59253634
Susan Jane (Low) MILLIKAN #59253758
Norval Dale MILLIKAN #59267105
Orval MILLIKAN #59266998
Anna May MILLIKAN #59267054

I also have the MALAN, CLOYDE, DENNIS, HILL,
BROADHURST and WARLICK families that I take
care of.

Thank you, Tina MALAN Crane

RE: John White, Memorial #97526257
Your willingness to assist me is so very much appreciated. Wow! Finding his DOD and location of his grave has been one of those genealogy walls that has seemed so insurmountable.

I hope this meager information will help: John David White was born 5 Jul 1848, Sevier Co., TN. I believe he died after 1900 because I found 1900 Census, Vinita, OK, I found a John White, 43, with a wife named Nancy so he may have remarried. His first wife, Sarah (Thomas) White, Findagrave memorial # 8636162, died in 1892.) She is buried at Fairview Cemetery. No headstone shown or exact location is given for her grave site, either. Perhaps they are buried close together. I don't have a record of his ever living in Osage County, I just don't know.

If it helps to know David's Daughter, Josephine E White, married Sewell W Hall. Her in-laws, Duncan D Hall and Mary Elizabeth (Schrimsher) (Hall)(Summers) Kenworthy are also buried at Fairview.

I'm hoping this little tidbit will help you further assist me. Again, I can't begin to convey how much I appreciate your help, Ms. Jackie.

John White, Memorial #97526257
Ms. Jackie,
Thank you for listing John White, Memorial # 97526257, interred at the Fairview Cemetery in Vinita, OK.

Per chance would you have the plot, section number or any other way I might locate the grave site. Do you have access to information that would indicate what date he was buried there? Perhaps the name of the register book it came from? I am 95% sure this is my gr gr grandfather. He married to Sarah Elizabeth Thomas, who is also buried at Fairview Cemetery. Any further information you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

Betty Atkins
Aaron Gregory
My name is Betty Atkins I was born May 30th 1940 to Irene Gregory. Her husband, (my birth father) was Aaron Gregory (quite a bit older) and he died before my birth. My only information was that I was living with a grandmother and had to be given up for adoption, as my grandmother had tuberculosis. I was adopted by Wayne and Una Wright as a toddler. ancestry.com lists my mother, Irene Gregory as having died under that same name on April 29, 2001.I am hoping to find out anything I can about my birth parents. My email address is elizabethatkins@comcast.net. Can you help in any way? Thank you

RE: S S Sharp
Thank you so much for taking the time to check on this area--and the Sharps. I put some in my yard when we first built the house, (I didn't know any better at the time)in a rock-gravel area. Once you plant those things, they are there forever,, you pull them up, more come up. I have tried spraying them with roundup, they thrive on it. We bulldozed an area to build a garage, they came up.
A friend who does a lot of looking for graves in our area, says that a lot of graves that aren't in cemeteries, are marked by yuccas. When they find a yucca in a strange area, they check for evidence of a grave.
Thanks again--so many graves are lost--and no record of the person's burial can be found--Thanks so much, Loneta
