Bio and Links

I want to thank each of you for your thoughts
and prayers. Your kindness means a great deal
to me and my family.

I'm retired, doing genealogy work & enjoy helping on the website. I'm a proud Okie., born & raised in Oklahoma. I am of Cherokee decent, as my Great Grandfather and Grandfather signed the Dawes Rolls. I have been doing my 'Long' family tree for years and have found so many cousins online.
It has certainly been interesting and most enjoyable meeting and hearing from new distant family members. I have learned so much about
my ancestors and their lives down through the generations, I hope to perserve their memories for future generations to come. This is why I like working on the findagrave site, hoping to help others looking for their loved ones. I have found others to be very helpful and kind to share information.
My husband and I are enjoying our church, family & early retirement.
Aren't the Grands Fun?!!!
We have two beautiful granddaughters.

If I have made any mistakes, or
you would like to have your family
info added to their page, please contact
me and I'll be happy to add it for you.

Thank you...Phyllis

I want to also say thank you for taking the time to visit my loved ones memorial pages and leaving a note for them. God Bless You

RE: Atchley family history
Hi Phyllis, Sorry for the delayed response! I wish there was as much information about Martin as seems to exist for his brother Thomas. My ancestor is supposed to have taken his name from his mother, Marty Martin, wife of Joshua Atchley. There is a legend I encountered that said she was the daughter of a "Franco Martino", an Italian! But this came with a warning that there was no evidence at all for that. In a marriage document for Martin O. Atchley, his name is spelled Martino Atchley, which may be a mistake, or perhaps his first name was Martino and it changed over time. These are intriguing questions. I will have to look again at the Bible pages of my ancestor, Moses Wyatt, which has some Atchley dates. Have you seen this? I have been away from studying this branch of my family, so this will help get me back into it! I had never heard that Mary Martin had been on the Mayflower, interesting!

RE: Rose Hill Cem. Willard
RE: Rhoda M. (Long) Neff
Rose Hill Cemetery, Willard, Greene, MO
Hi Phyllis,
Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. I lost my mother 3 weeks ago and have been trying to deal with that loss and everything that accompanies it.
I am President of the Rose Hill Cemetery Board. I checked our records and Rhoda's birth date is recorded as 1865. I went to the cemetery to check the stone and it is somewhat worn and almost difficult to read but I believed it read 1868. As I love a good mystery and being able to try to solve it, I began my research. I have come across the 1870 US Census, page 37, in Cass Township, MO, under her father's name, George Long. Rhoda is listed as being 2 years of age, which would make her birth year 1868. I have updated my records in the cemetery book to reflect the stone info and the census records. I was unable to locate a death certificate for her but those can be difficult to find prior to 1910.

I also got to checking the dates for her infant son, Orvil. They were listed on Find-A-Grave as b. 3/25/1878 d. 7/26/1878, which would have made Rhoda 10 years old at the time of his birth. The correct dates are: b. 3/25/1887 d. 7/26/1888.

I have sent edits on both memorial pages to correct the information. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

RE: Combs
Deb Lowe told us he's in the Combs-Goode-Green cemetery (her understanding of a previous time to the site). That I know of, it is not listed in Washington County as of yet.

RE: Combs
Thanks. i didn't start a new one, just left yours in place. If need be, I can do so. Here's the skinny. My sister (Sandi Rambo) and I read the same info about Richard Russell farm. He at one time owned over 760 acres at that area. The actual location of the grave is off 2020 Long Run Road. My sister, our cousin Vonda, and I have been to the site. It is not easy to reach. The farm presently is owned by Don and Mary Kessler. We met her, and she was very accomodating. The picture posted was when we first got there. It has since been cleaned up by the gentleman who used to maintain it. He has kin in there that ties back to the Combs family.

You list him as non-cemetery burial. Do you have any info on where he was buried?

RE: Tombstone picture
If I can track down a groundskeeper the next time I am out there I will see if they can locate the headstone for me. The office said they could not tell if there ever was a headstone placed. I recognize that area and think I may have looked for her on a previous request, but not sure. Also, there were some other Smith's in that area so if you have other family members that might have been buried there let me know.

RE: Long family
Hello Phyllis,
Here is a list of cemeteries in the Arkansas City area: Parker, Riverview, Memorial Lawn, Springside and Hope cemetery.

I did a search on my subscription and did not find any death notices for Julia or her two small children.

Good Luck on your search
