Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family history for many years and am fascinated with cemeteries. I love the old headstones. They were so unique.

I started adding information to F.A.G. from obituaries my aunt had kept on people she knew. It progressed into trying to complete as many cemeteries in the area as I could.

If I have created a memorial for one of your family members; please let me know and I will transfer it to you. Although F.A.G. has set rules about transferring memorials, I don't adhere to those. If one of my memorials is a part of your family tree, I will transfer it. Family belongs with family. Unfortunately there are some small minded people who will not transfer a family member because they are not within the restrictive FAG guidelines.

Also, I don't mind my headstone pictures being used; but, I would appreciate being asked first and to be given credit for taking the picture. It is only common courtesy. I spend a lot of time and gas in documenting the rural cemeteries in this area and don't appreciate those who think I am petty because I expect to be given credit for the work I do.

With the new "Edit" function, I can't guarantee the accuracy of the information on my memorials anymore. It has it's good and bad points.

RE: Robert Smith in Wildcat Cem.
R.M. and Chess were my gg Uncle and Aunt through my mother, who was a Smith. Last week I took a trip to Mangum to do a bit of research. The local genealogical society was very helpful and we found the obituary for R.M. Smith. We briefly searched for an obituary for Chess but she wasn't listed and I ran out of time.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Verna Alford in Liberty Bell Cemetery (Memorial# 17640262).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Oklahoma Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Linda Cardenas

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

Fighting Men From Oklahoma
Hi Linda, I just saw a "Flower" note you had left on a memorial for a WWII veteran, distant relative buried in Pittsburg County Oklahoma. I was wondering if you still have that info available? If so, I would love to include for my great-uncle Edgar Andrew Stanley, 8/1921 - 1/1993, WWII Navy veteran buried in California at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery, Santa Nella, Merced County, Memorial 134535314. I manage his memorial so you can submit the info on the edit tab for inclusion on the bio.
Thank you very much. I appreciate the volunteer work you do for Find a Grave. I promise to pay it forward.
