Hi, I made the edits you suggested to her memorial and noticed your comments in the flowers section. If you would like to send the info in a bio format, I'd be more than happy to post it so it's always in a prominent position. Thanks. Kelly

I have run across a small obituary for Mrs. Jetton in the States-graphic (Brownsville, TN) of 11/17/1916. I thought you might like to see it.

I am not related to this person, but am working on this for a family member. Would you please transfer Viola West to me, so I can add all of the children. There is one that is not on Find A Grave, and I would like to add that in the BIO. Also one that someone else put in McNeil, and they are just guessing. My # is 46971416. Viola's # is 69495025. Would really appreciate this. Thank you, Johnilee

I did find a Mary E. Battenfield on Findagrave at Fairland Cemetery in Fairland, Ottawa co., Oklahoma. Don't know if that's her or not.

RE: Mary Ella Chastine Battenfield
Mary Ella Chastain was my husbands great grandmother. Her daughter, Lucille Battenfield Richard was his grandmother. I have A picture of Mary Ella and her death certificate, but have been unable to gather much info on her. I know she was b. 1877, one source says in Ala. and one source says Texas. Also, unsure if last name was Chastain or Chasteen.i found her in 1920 census living in Quanah, Tex. with Lucille and Jack. I know Ella died Apr. 7,1922 in Hardeman Tex. Do you have any info on her that I could add to my research? How are you related to her?

RE: Mary Ella Chastine Battenfield
I have been working on this the better part of the day. I believe you are correct. So the info on James McDonald Battenfield is incorrect. I think James M. Is our ancestor. But how odd is this that you have 2 men with possibly the exact name and even living in the same general area? I have been changing all the info on Ancestry. Do you think the two James are related?
Thank you for bringing this to my attention as Ancestry research is worthless, if not accurate.

RE: Arthur King Find A Grave Memorial# 15833851
A cenotaph is a marker within a cemetery placed in honor of a person whose remains are buried elsewhere. Is there a marker for him in the cemetery with him parents and siblings?

Arthur King Find A Grave Memorial# 15833851
You suggested that he be placed in Memorial Park, OKC with his parents and siblings. I am hesitant to move him there without verification that he is in fact buried there.

His wife was cremated so I am thinking that he probably was too. The obit simply says "memorial service was held". There is no indication of a burial.

If you have something to indicate that he is buried I am happy to make the change.

Elizabeth Manley Kelton Martin
You state in her story that her family was massacred by Indians. What family do you mean and where did you get this information. She is listed as Elizabeth Manley Kelton in her Father Jesse Manley's will. He died in Haywood County. My husband is an ancestor of Jesse Manley through her sister Francis. They were not killed by Indians. So, what family is it?

RE: Monroe Jefferson Henderson edits
To confuse things there's another Monroe J. Henderson that I found in the 1900 census. Now how many Monroe J. Hendersons can there be in the world? Ages don't match though. Good luck in your research. Jane

Monroe Jefferson Henderson edits
Hi, You being a Henderson I should yield to your expertise but I'd like to ask about the links you suggested for Monroe Jefferson Henderson to Robert and Sarah as his parents. I see that he was born in Alabama and died in Baltimore. The only records I could find for Robert and Sarah were from DeKalb, Georgia. I'd prefer to have a source and since they were out of state I don't have acces to something like their death notices. If you are able to help with any sources I'd be glad to make the changes. Thank you for all that you sent. Jane Feldmann Cook, Baltimore.

The Keltons
My husband's mother was a Kelton through Charles William Kelton and Vianna(Virginia) Adams. Do you know anything about them? I have found Charles military info. nothing about his wife. I do know they were separated at some point prior to WWII. I have their marriage certificate. I know they had 5 kids. Mercell Virginia, Jackie C., William Odell, Jimmie Frank, and Frances Louise (my husbands mother). Anything else at all would be greatly appreciated. thank you for your time.

Actually, the 616 refers to age at time of death. I believe 616 means 61 years, 6 months of age. However, Iíve noticed that a lot of the entries end in 6 so Iím pretty sure they didnít figure out exact age. Since Gertrude was born July 1873 and died November 15, 1934, she was actually about 61 years, 4 months old at death, so it should have been 614.

I donít see any Keltons (other than her Mom), Collins (other than John DeGuermore Collins), Malones or Wurtzels listed on the Hagerman Cemetery transcripts that appear online. Iím pretty sure that the Hagerman Masonic Cemetery portion has been left out of many of the transcripts and those that appear are only compiled by walkthroughs. Of course, that doesnít tell us much because if the grave is unmarked it will be missed. I also checked the available transcripts of cemeteries nearby, including Roswell South Park, Lake Arthur, Dexter and Artesia, but found nothing. Sometimes the death certificate shows the town in which they will be buried if you have a copy of hers available.

Weíll do another walkthrough when weíre at the cemetery over Memorial Day just in case and let you know.

I found a phone number for the Hagerman Cemetery, (575) 626-4661, if you want to contact them. Iím not sure that includes the Masonic part or not but, if not, they should know who to contact. The Historical Society published a book, ďMeeting the Train,Ē that you can see portions of on Google Books @ From there you can search for names, etc. There is a short section on the J. E. Blythe family that mentions Mr. and Mrs. Granville Kelton, written by the Keltonsí granddaughter, Florrie Blythe Mansfield.

The cemetery in Hagerman is divided with the south side (2,500 plus graves) being the Hagerman Cemetery and the north (around 250-275 graves) being the Hagerman Masonic Cemetery (see photos on the main pages of the cemeteries). Returning from Roswell the other day my hubby stopped in Hagerman and did a quick walkthrough of the Masonic side of the Hagerman Cemetery but didnít see any Wurtzels. Hopefully, weíll be out there again Memorial Day weekend and weíll try to check it out again. Iíll let you know what we find.

How did you find out she was buried in Hagerman? Did they happen to know the plot number or some description of the gravesite location? Are you sure the grave is marked? Any information would be very helpful.

I was interested in your information that there was a grave or a cenotaph for Robert Latimer at Beech Cumberland Presbyterian Cemetery. I cannot find one or any evidence of one. Did you find a record of this somewhere? Thanks.

Unless you have confirmed info, I have to disagree that he, his wife Daughter Ida and her husband Adolphus hope are buried in the Pearl cemetery. My brother was at the ranch where the Hope cemetery is about 20 years ago and the old gentleman there pointed out exactly where Joshua, Mary, Ida and Adolphus were buried. This also matches the area my father point out to me along about the same time. Joshua was my great grandmother, Sanford Gibbs Robinson Lankford. Adolphus was a Hope.

RE: Murphy Reece

I looked in my family tree and back when they were in Wales there was a Roger Reese b. 1716 who was born in Wales but I have nothing else for him. So that may be a possible connection. His parents were Rev. David Ap Rees (Reese) II & Maude Owens who are my 7th Great-Grandparents. David's father was Sir David Ap Rees I Prince of South Wales. So if you ever find a connection to this please let me know because that means that they are related to me and the other branch that also settled in Independence County and Searcy County, Arkansas. Let me know if you ever find anything.
