|I'm enjoying the adventure to uncover my ancestry. I'm just beginning the cemetery portion of the adventure, and so much wonderful history is beginning to unfold. I've always been drawn to fictional/historical military books and movies; so I was so surprised to find all the heroes right in my own family. We've got something from every war clear back to the revolution. My maternal and paternal grandparents all completed the trek to the west coast, but I'm hoping to trace the trek backwards to the east coast with each stop our families made over the last 350 years. My German ancestors began in New York (mid 1800). The colonial ancestors hail from Virginia via S.C., Tenn, KS, and MO. If you happen to read this and know anything about the Heugonots in Manakin, VA (Goochland Co.) The Draper and Graves clan are my descendants from that area.|

|Marcia Smith||RE: Lucy Dean|
Thanks for jarring my memory! Of course, I remember now. And I appreciate your compliment. I was a journalist in a previous life, and so I'm more meticulous than some about the details.
I continue to stay in touch with George. We met in person in February when he came to Dallas to do research. He sent me some photos yesterday, and I'm in the process of loading them on my ancestry site.
They are about Pilot, as he prefers to spell it. I rather like Pilate myself.
Feel free to contact me any time. This forum is a little public, so don't hesitate to use my personal email.
|Marcia Smith||Lucy Dean|
Her maiden name was Graves. She was from Wilson County, TN.
|Marcia Smith||Pilate (or Pilot) Dean|
I have a death date, if you would like to add it to his site. It is March 1865.
You'll see that I added a photograph for Elizabeth Murray Dean, one provided to me by George Dean, a descendant who also gave me Pilot's date of death.
I have done a great deal of research on Willis Dean, father of Pilot and husband of Elizabeth Murray Dean. If you need any information, I would be happy to help.
Laurie, I am trying to locate a lady named Judy Leue, her maiden name was Hicks. Judy is related to me and I would like to contact her. It has been about 10 years and I have lost phone and email for her. I believe she lived in the north west US when I had contact via email with her. Beverly at email@example.com

|Judy Mayfield||RE: Memorial# 35984697|
I'm sorry to say that I have no way of knowing if this is your relative. I do not have access to any research for the Ponca City, OK area. I live in Wichita, KS and do not get down to Ponca very often.
|Frances Cope||RE: Thanks for the Picture|
You are very welcome. I'm glad I could assist you.
|Joanne Slayden Hughey||Dorothy Phillips|
Laurie, I claimed your request and will get over there Wednesday or Thursday. I just wanted to say I knew Dorothy and she was such a wonderful lady. I sit in front of Ed each Sunday in church. Joanne firstname.lastname@example.org
|Mike Phillips||Elmer L Phillips/Memorial Park|
When you posted the photo of his tombstone, it posted twice. You might want to delete one of them.
|Oklahoma Bob||Jess Maness Wade|
I have correct the memorial page for Jess Wade. The tombstone says...Jess M. Wade. Good catch on my error. Thanks
|Mike Phillips||Virgie Phillips|
Must have been a typo as the informant was a John Phillips, could have been a son as the father-in-law was already deceased.
