Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've decided to change my profile to reiterate my feelings on transfers, additions, and corrections to the memorials that I manage:

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will now transfer only within the stated guidelines. Please do not ask me to make a bulk transfer of names. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Please consider using the "virtual cemetery" feature on this site to keep track of relations.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Please have your messages enabled if you want to correspond with me. I will not use my personal e-mail on this site.

RE: Edward & Wanda Gibbs
Thank you so much B.J.! I'm sorry I didn't have these memorials ready when I had Aunt Lahoma's posted. I'm pretty new to all of this. Very happy that she and her brother are buried near each other. Thank you once again for all you do!

Have a great day, Lyn

The name as listed on the memorial is the way it was shown in the ledger and should be correct. I have returned it so no longer have easy access to it. I do recall when posting this because of being out of state I sort of took a second look to determine the cemetery, and this was the one (funeral home) where it was shipped. Thanks for your help.

RE: Olga Buell
Hi B.J., I sent a message explaining how Olga's maiden name was Balch and that McElwee is her first husband's surname. I believe, it's my speculation, that her son by Hugh McElwee, James Irvin McElwee, had the name but on her marker. My genealogical research has Census proof of Olga and her son living with her mother Jennie Balch months after Hugh McElwee's passing. I also have Census proof that there son was the stepson of George Buell, Olga's second husband.

Hope that clears things up.

Thank you for attempting to locate and photograph this memorial. Pierce Bros. at this location is the cemetery shown on the funeral home ledger in Oklahoma where the death occurred. I guess there's always a chance a change was made or perhaps the family here didn't have the proper name, but this is what was shown. Appreciate your help.

RE: Lemuel Houser
When I created one site there was a section at bottom to indicate how famous I thought the person was. I assumed that you had to get so many votes before the memorialized person was granted celebrityhood by the Find A Grave overseers. Brutal.
