RE: Heltons
My husband Jeff is related to the Helton's. They are his great grandparents. But, you know them better. His grandparents are Francis Helton Beaver and her husband Oliver H. Beaver.

Do your memorials have relationship links on them? If you can do that....I think we are almost there. Then I will look....and I can remove mine.

Sorry I have to run. I am checking email though.

NO WORRIES on how much work it is for me. I just want them memorialized because they gave birth to a great family! : )

Heltons in Ft. Gibson Citizen Cem: combine memorials?
As long as you are okay with this idea:

We should get the memorials I have for Mike, Mary and Ed Helton (their son) in your name. You obviously know them more than I do. Right now there are two sets of memorials.

(I apologize, I should have said earlier that I had memorials on these folks. I had just gotten off the road visiting these cemeteries and was doing a lot of things. (I drove some 7500 miles to visit them in Jan 2010))
Mike Helton....w/ photo of stone
Mary Edna Brooks Helton
Edward Clay Helton

If we combine....
I want to make sure to do these things to preserve data, connections, photos (ie: I have headstone photos, and relationships links, and you have other data that I do not have).

I want to preserve any relationship links. In other words, if you keep yours and mine get decommissioned? I would want you to add the relationship links (you can snag from the above links).

I think yours has some COOL "flowers" left by other people (Donna) with INFORMATION. I would not want that person to be lost (or bug them to add it again) if one set gets decommissioned. Because of that....maybe you should keep yours, we combine data....then I delete mine.

You know them best, I have a tendency to visit their graves a lot, and Donna has PHOTOS of Helton ancestors even if its not Mike and Mary themselves. I want to make sure to preserve all these contacts in case anyone has questions.

(I will check one more time on who has what.)

I am not at all concerned about least on my end.....just easy connections for visitors to find all of us for a variety of reasons. If my photos stay? I can add a caption that says I am relation, and can add a "flower" so people can find me there. ("easy connections for people": click on a link to get right to the person, anything else and people may not know how to find someone in FindAGrave)

Let me know.

Donna Railsback-Braly bio

Others that Donna Railsback-Braly has:
John Richmond Helton.....but, is he really buried here? Was he a soldier or spouse of a military person? I think you said he was not one of those "rocks" in the citizen's cemetery...but, I do want to find out who they are

Hi Bill -- I have climbed through the computer wires and have figured out what you wanted to say. Although the blank message had me confused for a moment. You are welcome for the marker photos of Samuel Donaldson and his wife. I am glad I could help.! -- Laurel
