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: Infant Farina Transfer
Linda, Do you remember when and where you acquired the information from Gist Funeral Home records? The funeral home has changed hands a time or two and the current owners records don't go back that far and can't help. Any information would be a big help.
Thanks again for all the time you spend taking the pictures.

Jane Valentine #12214986
Hi Linda,

Can you please tell me if the Fannie Phillips Headstone, Find A Grave Memorial# 11661512, is located in the proximity of the headstone for Jane Valentine? I have reason to believe that Jane is the daughter of Fannie.

Thank you,

Infant Farina Transfer
Thank you so very much for transferring my mother's infant brother's memorial "Infant Farina" to me. The deceased baby has a name, deceased parents and many deceased siblings. I manage the 6 that are on his memorial but waiting on the other 4 that I don't manage to be updated.
August Dean isn't alone any longer.

Thank you again,
Wanda Harrison

It appears that someone in the family had a headstone placed for him in the same cemetery where his wife was later buried. From what I know, John was buried in a National Cemetery there in California (the other memorial). I am currently in contact with one of his granddaughters and will let you know if I find out differently.

No problem from me with not removing your memorial, but it is nice that you provide a note showing that he is actually buried in California. You might want to include the other memorial number in case some relative wants to visit his actual grave.

I am putting together a history for my daughter on her paternal side of the family. Her Grandparents are dead and she knows nothing.
I saw the information that you have put in on him and I am excited to share with my daughter. Her dad didn't even know how his grandpa had died.

Can you send me a picture of the headstone

Thanks for all your hard work

William Sherman Ray
Do you have any way of checking to see if William Sherman Ray is buried beside Fannie K, Ray at Lone Grove Cemetery. According to his Texas Death certificate, his remains were transferred from Littlefield, Texas where he died to Loan Wolf Oklahoma on Aug 3, 1937 [he died Aug 2, 1937. For copy of the certificate, see:

William and Fannie's daughter is buried at the same cemetery as her mother, and probably her daughter Dessie Ray. You hve created memorials for both of them.

I subscribe to two newspaper websites, but neither have any newspapers from that area of Oklahoma at the right time period

I live in Ponca City, and have very recent cemetery records for Kay County, All cemeteries were done from sexton's recrds and are very complete. If I can help you in this part f the state, let me know.

Loyd M. Bishop

BTW these are not close cousins, and do not particularly want memorials to be transferred. I agree with you on letting my memorials transfer.
