Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in the late 1940s in Enid, Garfield Co., Oklahoma, and raised there until graduation from Enid High School in 1966. Graduated from Southern Nazarene University (SNU) in 1970 with a B.A. in Religion, and again from SNU in 1975 with an M.A. in Religion. Married to Barbara J. Matt in Aug 1969 in Austin, MN. Pastored a Wesleyan Church in Oklahoma City from 1972-75 and was ordained in July 1973 as a Wesleyan (Methodist) minister.

Served two, four-year terms as a field linguist/missionary in Papua New Guinea, from 1975-79 and again from 1982-86. Earned a second M.A. in Linguistics in 1980 from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), and a Ph.D. in Linguistics in Humanities from UTA in 1987, dissertation entitled, "Unraveling Murder and Mayhem: A Textlinguistic Analysis of a Wiru Divination Account, Papua New Guinea."

Since 1987 I have served as a member of the faculty at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in the School of Religion and Philosophy. I have worked on Fullingim genealogy (and related lines) and family history since 1972.

RE: Headstone pic - Kaufman
You're very welcome. I'll pass your thanks along to the cemetery office for helping with the location, and to my friend that I dragged along to with me. We're happy to have helped!

Memorial# 38536278 Martha Luvenia "Mattie" (Wade) Boyd
Hi - Rather than delete anything, I sponsored the memorial so you can add up to 20 photographs. Perhaps not as much for this specific memorial, but in general I feel there is value in photos from different years.

The effect of weather and cemetery maintenance take their toll on markers, and sometimes the marker has suffered serious damage such as cracks or has become dislodged. I hope you will indulge my opinion and I suppose my vanity in retaining all grave photos. If your upload needs exceed 20, then of course I'll comply.

Sure glad you're enjoying working through this family. When I first discovered Find A Grave I had no idea of its value in general research. So often by looking at extended burials an illusive relative is discovered, especially women.

Our age of personal computers has been such a huge benefit to genealogy research. I truly do not know if I would have the same enthusiasm if I was totally dependent upon requesting data through the post office and waiting for replies.

We owe an unpayable debt of gratitude to those who did indeed wait for relies to their innumerable letters, as well as the hours spent scrolling through countless reels of microfilm.

I also enjoy "meeting" fellow researchers, which is so easy for us today but probably not at all common in those days of letter writing. Excuse my long reply, I do get carried away. Have a wonderful New Year ~ Nancy

Management transferred. BTW, I've added Bertram F (Golden Gate National cemetery) to my photo list for the next time I'm up that way.

Good luck
