I live in Oklahoma City, OK. I have always had an interest in my family tree and in cemeteries. My dad died when I was 3 years old, and my only real connection to him has been through pictures, stories from family and his grave. I have always found it interesting to search through old cemeteries and wonder what the "story" might have been for those buried there. I lost one son when he was 30. When I found this website, I wanted to add a memorial for him. I am now in the process of adding more family members.
Emmitt Clark Hello Mary, I saw that you left flowers on Emmitt Clark's page. He is buried in Hopedale Cemetery in Ozark MO. I was wondering if you are related to him? He would have been my husband's great great uncle. We just found my husbands great-grand-parents in the same cemetery and in digging a little deeper, found Emmitt who my husband knew nothing about. We're just looking for any possible family matches. Thank you and hope you are having a good day. Dee Clark
Harold Lee Daggs Jr I want to thank you for creating this memorial. Harold is my second cousin, once removed. I am just now getting this deep into this branch. I cannot fill in the history for you but I sincerely appreciate your remembrance.
John and Sarah Williamson Good evening Mary, my name is Cheryl and I am trying to get a front picture of the monument for John and Sarah Williamson. They are the parents of Ella (Williamson) Sportsman who married a relative Hugh Sportsman who I haven't quite figured out if he is an Uncle or Grandfather yet. I was wondering if you had it, if you wouldn't mind sending me what is on the front of the brick memorial for John and Sarah Williamson or for the Pioneer 89er's. Its a brick memorial with a old copper front with what looks like a story. I too, am interested in my relatives, what their lives must have been like and what they must have been like because I grew up with no relatives at all. It was only me, my sister, brother and mother. If you could, can you send me a copy of the front of that brick memorial? I would most definitely appreciate it. My email - email@example.com and my name is Cheryl Clark.
Rappleyea Hi, I am researching my family tree and Richard Roy was my uncle, if he is related to Albert Rappleyea of North Tonawanda, NY. I contacted a Melissia on anchestry who is his daughter in law. If tjis is the right one can we exchange information. Thanks, Diane
RE: Aleshire GREAT NEWS!!!!! I believe I found the connection you're looking for! Mary Ann "Polly" McDaniel has TWO sisters! Lucinda born in 1841 or 1847 and Harriet E. McDaniel born 1854 in Missouri City, Great Bend, Texas. She would be my 2nd great grand aunt.
RE: Aleshire I checked my index and found none of the names you gave me in your last post. If you find a connection I would love to know about it. That would make us relation. Mary Ann Poly McDaniel is my 2nd great grandmother 4 times removed.
