Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in Southwest Oklahoma all my life. I enjoy doing genealogy for both my husband's and my families and am a member of our local county genealogy society. I want to be a part of finding and preserving our family history information. I try to help others by volunteering to take photos of their families gravestones in cemeteries near me as others have done to help me.

Please feel free to copy information and/or cemetery photos I've added on for your own personal family history records. You don't need to contact me directly for permission, but please indicate that I provided the photo and that it is being used with permission. If you are using it for commercial purposes or monetary gain, you will need to contact me for written permission.

As time permits, I am photographing gravestones in our county cemeteries. Please let me know if you ever notice any errors or if you would like for me to transfer a memorial to you that isn't one of my family memorials.

Happy Hunting!

Ada Lee McCormick Duke
She gave birth to a baby boy around August 1944 she named him Ronnie Gerald McCormick. She was around 14 at the time. She didn't have the means to support him. She gave him up for adoption. I was her sons Search Angel. He was in search of her to find out if he had any family. He knew her name and date of birth and where she was from. He knew she passed but had little else to go on. I am hoping to connect him with his other Natural Birth family. He is 71 and doing well. He is now married and in search of his family. If you know anything please let me know.

Thank you for taking the photo of her (and Grace's) headstone. I went back several years ago to take one myself. Her home was gone and so was the one I was born in. You are doing good work! I appreciate it so much. Thank you.

When you add a photo of person, just add it under PERSON and not GRAVE. I suggest you do this for this lovely lady..

Thank you for posting Eva's picture. It is currently posted as a grave photo. Could you repost it as a "Person" photo? Thanks for your help.

Can you either transfer my cousin to me or link her grandparents to her?
