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: Oscar Spraggins
Linda, this is the article regarding Oscar Jackson Spraggins (I have printed out the caption that can be seen on the memorial photo) Oscar Jackson Spraggins was killed during WW I. This article gives an account of that incident. Though difficult to completely read it says:

"Bugler Oscar G.(?) Spraggins, son of W. N. and Katie Spraggins, of Pilot Point was born in Fammin County, Texas, November 12, 1898. He was educated in the public schools of Flat Creek, Cook County. When was was declared between the United States and Germany he entered the service September 18, 1917, and was ordered to Camp Travis, where he was assigned to Company B, 339th Infantry, Fifth Division, and here he trained for several months. On June 7, 1918 sailed overseas to France. He has been through all the campaigns of his company, in the trenches, from the St. Michael on thhrough the Mes___Argonne drive. While engaged in the battle between Rachenville and _____that form a triangle, and artillery on both sides pounding away, and the enemy machine guns very thick. Bugler Spraggins volunteered to carry some important messages for his Captain, and while performing his duty was hit in the chest by a machine gun bullet, from which he died two hours later, his death occurring on November 5, 1918. He was ....with all military honors possible under the circumstances...His death was that of a patriot and hero."

Achillis Morris & Minnie Morris
Thanks for posting this headstone. In the area where you have listed their names and possible relatives you have Minnie as born in 1886 yet the headstone is listed as 1866. If you would correct that it would be appreciated. Achilles information is correct.

Harvey and Georgia Waldrop
Yes, they were married. They are my grandparents on my dad's side. They were, however, divorced (I believe). At least I was told that Grandma Georgia told my dad Von to hitch up the wagon and they, with Grace, took off (after borrowing a little cash from the grocer). They ended up in OK, and Von's brother Guy went there too. So Harvey eventually ended up there as well. However, one of his kids, Ruth, told me he was a son of a bitch. Not only did he not like kids, he didn't like people. He had some woman living with him by the ''40s, she said. So he was not a widower from Georgia, as she didn't die until 1972. I have another photo of Harvey in his later years, but I LOVE this one. Who added it? I also have one of Georgia when young--so beautiful--and one of them with the 4 kids. Like most of the Scots-Irish, he was a bare knuckle boxer. This is about all I know, as of 2015. Just getting started, but this is all family knowledge told me.

I wanted to thank you for adding my great grandparents. I seen where you would be willing to give the family members who want the memorials, I guess I'm saying is would you mind transferring my great grandparents to me. I would be extremely thankful.

Hi. I think we may have talked before about the Henry Buehler family buried in Union Hatchett Cemetery at Bessie, Okla. I sent you an edit request because some of the daughters are listed with the maiden name spelled Beuhler instead of Buehler. You can look at the parents grave if you'd like to verify that Buehler is the correct spelling.
Thanks. M.L. Walker

Linda, I kept the 1856 but noted your information in the bio. I will see if I can find any other record to break the tie, so to speak. ~~laugh~~ I have found that death records and stones often disagree.

Thanks and have a great day,

I got the obit from [Ray & Martha's Funeral Homes] as the bio states. I do not correct the publisher info. You should contact them and tell them they made mistake... I would correct if you told me what the proper names of sisters are.. I do want everything correct.
