Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Debbie, and I am a genealogy researcher, mom of 3, wife of 28 years, pet owner to 3 cats and 1 dog , gardener & crafter, and am a teacher to 3-5 year olds for that mighty paycheck. When I am not looking for my own family's records, I am out exploring small cemeteries and taking photos for those requesting cemetery photos close to me. During the summers I like to venture out and seek out stones and learn of the history that made me who I am. My favorite so far is Parke County, Indiana. I walked in the courthouse to find directions to a cemetery, and the clerk was a distant cousin!!! I also love to research Labette County KS for family tidbits. Family Surnames: DANIEL, POELMA, WATSON, HUFFMAN, SUMPTER, SUMTER, COOPER, COPPINGER, SAYLOR,BOWMAN among others.

When weather is bad, or I don't want to leave home, I like to work on counted cross stitch. My current project is to the left of my bio.

Happy Digging!

EDITS at White Cemetery in Muskogee County

In case you were wondering, the source on those edits I have put in (mainly plot numbers) -- is the book "Our People And Where They Rest: A Visit to 104 Old Cemeteries in Eastern Oklahoma," James W. Tyner, Maxine Tyner and Alice Tyner Timmons, American Indian Institute, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. 1970-1985, (Library of Congress No. QE99-C5-T97) There wasn't a place for me to put that in the edit form.

Thanks for all your help! Best wishes.

RE: Lois Messina
Hi thank you so much. You know, I can't seem to find any info about Joseph Messina, other than him and Lois lived in California at some point. I know most of her family was Missouri, so not sure yet anything about him other than their marriage in California in 1970. I will keep looking; mostly likely him but want to be sure.

Thanks again!

Find A Grave Memorial# 54627067

I just found two Census, 1900 and 1910 with the spelling of Horace. Now I really am confused. But his SSDI says Harris L Burd. WWI record says Harris Linn Burd. Indexed as Harris Sinn Burd.

Everything that I find in a legal document states his name as Harris Lynn Burd. SSDI, WWI record.

I am not sure which family member put up the headstone, but I don't think it is right. Could you put a notation that his name could be Harris Lynn Burd?

Thank you for all you do, your work is appreciated.

RE: Hale's at Wooden
THank you for this information. I know you and I have talked before about the missing marker for the mother and that could be. Sure wish we had the original burial plot. Oh well.

I see you are a cross stitcher. I had a friend who did that set of pictures. They are so beautiful. You are very talented!

Thanks again for all your help.
