Ola Keller
Shirley, it sure adds up that this is the Ola that is the daughter of John POTTER. The book that I got the names of the people buried in Forgan Cemetery only listed her as Ola KELLER. Someone must have asked me to add ARDOIN as her maiden name. I have removed ARDOIN as her maiden name while there is a suspicion it is possibly incorrect.

Shirley, I have transferred all of the Potters in Forgan Cemetery to you. I thought you'd have fun linking them all together and adding info that you might have.

RE: Lee Family Tree
I use a self-publisher. This will be my third book with them. Right now I have no idea about the price. It is a longer book than my other two. I know of someone who had her local library order one of my books. She told me she had to read it there and wasn't allowed to take it out. I'm in the polishing phase of my book. My goal is to have it off to the publisher by August.

RE: Lee Family Tree
I was really thrilled to get your message. Glad you pointed out those dates because I will change them on my tree. The dates have been the hardest part of this whole thing.

I was really thrilled last week and this week. About six months ago, I bought one of those Ancestry DNA kits. Have had some wonderful confirmations on the Lee, Bannister, Connaway and all the way back to Beall lines. (My husband and I are distant cousins on the Beall line. Funny thing to discover!) Today, I got another one. So I'm very happy about all of that. I need to mention those DNA confirmations in my book.

Am going to include some pictures in my book my great grand uncle took when he visited Arminda, John and Mary at their little house in Oklahoma. He was my great grandmother's half brother because Catherine Lee died in childbirth with her second child and my gg-grandfather married Rachel Dilley. He was one of Rachel's sons. He loved those people. When he visited them, it happened at a really low point in his life. So he went back there from time to time.

So glad you like my tree!

No, you don't need an account. I'll send the invitation to your email. And when you accept it, then you will get a link to go in. I'll go over there and send you the invitation tonight.

RE: Lee Family Tree
You're the first person I have met outside my immediate family connected with this particular Lee line. I'm currently writing a book about some of my paternal grandmother's illusive lines. The research has taken over 20 years and I've been working on the actual book for three years--hope to have it finished this fall. If you like, I could send you an invitation to my Twigs of Inman-Spence-Beall-Warfield Family Branches Tree on It's a private tree and I only open it to people on request. There's quite a story behind the pictures I have, and I tell the story in my book. I took the Ancestry DNA matching test and have found matches on the Lee-Bannister-Connaway lines--so I'm really thrilled with that. So glad to hear from you.

RE: Doris Bradley
You are very welcome. I usually don't keep the pictures after posting them so wanted to make sure her memorial also had the photo. I am not family and would be more than happy to transfer her to you. Just let me know.

Ruth is transferred to you. I think... I'm on my cell phone so if it didn't transfer let me know!

Otis & Leola Christy-obits
Hi Shirley,
I have an obituary for Otis but can't send it to you without an email address. I'm entering mine below so you can send me yours privately. Leola does not have one in the Fresno papers, but you can order one for her off of the Tulare GenWeb site info. that I sent you already. (my email address)
