Bio and Links
I am happy to transfer memorials. Also, you are welcome to copy any of my photos, just please acknowledge me as the source.

If I have failed to provide a proper source for photos, please forgive me and let me know what is needed. I most often do these things on the fly- I mean no harm if I have left these off but I do want to give proper acknowledgement where it is due.

I often add memorials for victims of true crime. If you have any concerns about these, please let me know. I'm trying to be helpful, not intrusive! And I definitely am not trying to make any statement other than presenting historically interesting events.

I have had several questions regarding my sources or personal knowledge of specific true crime events. I will try to add sources to my memorials. My knowledge of true crime events is limited to online resources. I have no personal connection with any of these- yet.

Dale Clifft
The picture of Dale Clift was taken by me, Richard Smith, in the living room of Dale's home. Standing next to Dale was his wife, however, she was cropped out. This picture was taken Christmas eve 1969 before a group of us were headed to a party.
A complete story of the life of Dale, his car and the ten years we were friends is avaible on Kindle under title The Dale Automobile, also see Let the true story of this remarkable person and the Dale Automoble be known.

Please help me out regarding this burial. I'm thinking it should be in Tuskegee #2 Cemetery. As I recall this burial was on the north side of road going west, and the picture of the gate was the same as the # 2 cemetery. I believe there has been conversations about this earlier with others. Thank you so much, and all you do for Findagrave.

Tuskegee Cemeteries
Hello Newby 1:
I was at the Tuskegee Cemetery (Tuskegee, OK) on county road #351, Creek county yesterday afternoon and noticed that Barclay D Hoopes, Nevada M. Hoopes, Iva I. Hoss, Avadee Irons, Lacy Ann Irons, Norvel Irons, W. W Irons 1847-1909, W W Irons 1903-1903, and John T. Martin were in the Tuskegee Cemetery (Tuskegee) but on findagrave they are entered on the Tuskegee Cemetery (Edna, OK) list. The only reason I was looking was because I am canvasing the Tuskegee Cemetery (Edna) and I couldn't find some of the residents named on my list. Of course I'm new at this myself so it took me awhile to figure out that they could be at the other cemetery! lol

Have fun and have a great weekend.

Green Albert 82900493
While doing my family research I met up with my grandfathers twin sisters family that we never knew growing up and I have discovered so much with their help.

I learned that Albert L. Green, memorial no. 28602223. Is not my grandfather.

My grandfather is Albert Green Memorial# 121454036.

Can you please delete this information from
Benjamin Franklin Green memorial, Memorial# 82900493.

Please add my correct grandfather Albert Green Memorial# 121454036.

This is what is hard about doing research on a family. My grandfather Albert died before I was born, Albert and my grandmother Mary divorced when their children were young, this left us with very little to go on until now.

Thank you so much for all your trouble.

RE: Oak Grove Cem. in Stroud OK
The book isn't published yet but a couple of stories have appeared in a little quarterly tabloid called OKOLHA.

You can find it here:

Use the email link to ask about a subscription. I think it costs $25/year, and they'll send you back numbers if you ask.

Oak Grove Cem. in Stroud OK
Hello, I was looking at your photo posted in this cemetery and reading your profile. Interesting profile. Perhaps we could help each other. If you're following crime, I know a good bit about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. I've just written a book of factual narratives based on the subject. I'd be glad to share what I know. "Early-day" means early enough not to offend anyone. I go from the land rush up to the beginning of WWII. Nothing later.

Then, if you wouldn't mind, I wondered if you had any additional photos of Oak Grove Cem. that you could share with me. I'm working on a memorial there, and I'd like to have a photo I could post. Of course, I'd give you credit for it.

I live too far away to visit.

Best regards,
