Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and enjoy working on genealogy as a hobby. I have a masters degree from the University of Oklahoma and I'm using my research skills to hunt down my ancestors. is a terrific web site.
My ancestors include but are not limited to:
Allison, Campbell, Morris, Johnson, Holdsworth, Baird, Kirkpatrick, Phillippi, Worley, Sweeney, Vaught, Watson, Dale, Wheeler, Hoyt, Newman

I make an effort to connect husbands, wives and families using obituaries and census records.

As many of you know, I have spent hours taking photos in the Rose Hill Cemetery in order to create memorials. I also do research in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library for some of my memorials.

Member: Oklahoma Historical Society, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Civil War Trust, Friends of Mt Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, National Women's History Museum, Pulaski Co KY Historical Society, Cornerstone Genealogical Society (PA), Morrow Co OH Genealogical Society, Osborne Co KS Historical Society.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Mary Secor
Mary Henderson Secor would be listed in the 1870 Wayne County, Ohio census. In 1874 her parents moved to Miami County, Indiana and from there to Fulton County, Indiana. Her siblings settled not only in Fulton County but also Marshall County, Indiana and a couple eve went to Michigan where she had relatives later on. I have done extensive research in both Ohio and Indiana as well has have had contact with cousins in Michigan and elsewhere. Her birth would be recorded in Wayne County, Ohio. I have also had people in Wayne County, Ohio doing research on our Henderson as well as the Jewell line and a few others that were in that county that tie into our Henderson line.

Thank you so very much for all the work you have done. I used to put flowers on their graves when there was a florist across the street. I would like to do so again, if you know of a florist close by that would do that. Thanks again for all you have done.

Alice nee: Donaldson Boldin @ Ball Family Cem, Arl, VA
Dear Janet,

Per your request:
Alice Donaldson
Do you have a marriage record of her marriage to unk Boldin? She is listed on the 1870 census with her parents in Wash DC. Her name and dates appear on the stone memorial erected by the Ball family.

No, sorry I don't have a marriage record for her. There is a 2nd memorial, # 39968755, apparently based on the dual tombstone with both their, George and Alice's, names inscribed.

Seemingly, the dual tombstone was found after the multi-name monument was carved, is my guess.

Clarice Cox may be able to shed more light on the subject as she contributed the other memorial.

Always, in Find A Grave brother/sisterhood,

RE: Joye Katherine Bigley Coley
Her daughter's obituary #119699859 can be accessed. I also backed up this information with public family tree of the Nichols Family Tree which lists Joye Bigley as being the wife of Leslie Emmett Mattesen. I am not a relative, so I have no further proof.

Rev Dabney Ball, # 36746819
Dear Janet LaMotte,

I try to be so careful, when I saw the twine names on the monument, I figured one was a 'Jr'. Duplicate memorial # 127467614 has been deleted.

Thank you.

Always, in Find A Grave brother/sisterhood,

Verna is the daughter of George W. Holt (1868-1966) and his first wife Alice Parrock (Taylor) Holt-Whittle (1877-1958). Sister of Rose Holt Wright, George Holt, and Alice Marie Holt.

If this information is different than what you have, please share.

Thanks very much,
