Bio Photo Capt Lonnie Ray Hoover
Unites States Marine Corps

I have been researching my family tree for over 30 years. I have over 50,000 relatives in my tree.
My wife and I have sold our ranch and are now living in an RV. We will be on the road for at least three or four years, I want to visit and photograph all the cemeteries where my relatives are buried. My roots start in Virginia and North Carolina, I am starting there and working my way west.
One of my projects was to HONOR my fellow Veterans who are no longer with us, by photographing the over 20,000 memorials in the Fort Gibson National Cemetery, Ft Gibson, Oklahoma, to date I have taken photos of over 19,000 stones and added most to findagrave, then I went back, added wives and deleted all duplicates.
If I am managing one of your relatives, and they are not in my family tree, contact me and I will transfer it to you, no questions ask. Feel free to use any photo I have posted to Find A Grave, that's why I do this.
I research the family lines of my grandparents, WALSTON, LAWRENCE, WILLIS and HOOVER.

Please decline my edits. I had wrong information and can't seem to get to my pending edits to delete them.
Sorry, Rebel Jenkins (46914804)

I would like to add a new photo of the headstone which shows Iva Mae's death. Guess you have to delete the one you posted, it won't let me delete it. Thanks.

Thank you!!
Thank you so much for doing this. I live in Rifle Colorado and have been trying to get my tree in shape. Find a grave has been very helpful thanks to people like you.
If you find yourself in my neck of the woods I would love to meet you and if you need a place to park your RV you would be welcome to park it at my house. My mom and I a re traveling to Ouray Colorado this weekend to take some photos and to visit the graves of past relatives. I am also heading to Canon city, Gunnison, Salida, and montrose Colorado. Let me know if you need any help in these areas. God bless and THANK YOU!!!!! for your service!!!!!
