Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family tree for a few years now. They are the Witte, Shields, Baker and Ball family names from the Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri areas. I enjoy searching in my spare time and hope to make a nice family book to give to my son and brother one day. I saw a quote during a search and thought it very fitting "I bring dead people back to life." I like it because I feel that doing genealogy is giving the memory of loved ones, as well as all ancestors a living memorial for not only myself, but for generations to come after me.

Lucinda Roberts Ball

Do you know where Lucinda was born and died? Is it in a family Bible or death certificate, etc.?

Many thanks,
Robert Wacaser

Sandi Chatfield
Great Grandmother Lucinda
Dear Lisa,
My name is Sandi Chatfield. I just recently began the search for my mother's family. I lost her in 1976 and I was in my twenties. I have lost touch with her side of family.
My grandfather was Joseph E. Ball, b 10/17/1895 near Claremore Ok, Indian Territory to Charles Walker Ball and Lucinda Roberts Ball. He was my mother's father. He passed away in May of 1961 in the Veteran's Hospital in Albuquerque, NM and is buried in the Santa Fe National Cemetary.
Granddad Joe was married to Suvila Belle Griffith, and they had three daughters, Mary Lou, Billie Jo (my mother) and Bonnie Mae.
A cousin of mine found this site and her picture and gravestone. What an emotional journey this is.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Sandi Chatfield

RE: Witte graves

Thanks for letting me know. I transferred the Witte memorials I have to you as you are closer kin and have an interest. If you have pictures or bio's on them that will be easier to add this way. If you run into more kin on Find A Grave, don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. Most are happy to do it.

Again, thanks,

RE: Mr. Wheeler
Lisa,Thank you for your addition about dad and mom too. Daddy was the biggest sweetheart that ever lived and he did act mean but was putty in his families hands and he loved his school children. He was always telling some story to us about some of his students. He really wanted them to make life as good as possible for each and everyone of them.
He grew up a very poor person and made his life alone without help. So that was his goal for all his students.
You know ,I have had so many people tell me how much they loved dad when he taught them. It makes me feel good that he made such an impression on his students and their parents too.
I sure do miss him, talk about a daddy's girl, if you haven't figured it out. I am. The sadness is still there and it gets worse this time of the year.
Mom is doing well, just aging but still doing pretty well for 84. She also loved teaching and talks about her kids a lot even now.
Thank you again for the sweet kind words.
