Bio and Links
My wife and I have been doing genealogy research on both of our families since we retired in 1990.
My lines include (McKay, Cobb, Long, Matney, George, Benefield, Latch). All of my family lines were in the U.S. as far back as I can trace (early 1700's). My sirname migrated from VA to OK via TN, GA, AL, and AR. On my mothers side they migrated from OH to OK via IL and MO.

My wife's lines include:(Skaggs, Gilreath). Her family migrated from KY, SC, and GA to OK. We are willing to share any information we have.

We also take cemetery photos of our family stones as well as for tombstones for cemeteries in our area.

Elijah Anderson Miller. Could you look more closely at his tombstone for dates of birth and death. You have 25 Nov 1883- 30 Oct 1894. That would make him 11 years old. You have added a wife. I looked at the tombstone and it looks like died 20 years , months and days. Not able to see the writings, but know something is amiss.

Carson mother and daughter-in-law
I am looking for the graves of Amanda Row Carson nee Curtis and her daughter-in-law, Amber May Carson nee Deaton. In April 1892, Amber became very ill and Amanda went to "Waller County" to tend her. Amber died and three days later, on 22 April, Amanda died.

We have been unable to locate where they were buried. When I saw the unknown matching stones,I wondered -- maybe. Is there any way to guess at the time of burial, given which part of cemetery ? I would be grateful for any conjecture you or others may have.
Thanks for all you do!

Claud & Martha Ellen Baldwin
My grandparents, Claud & Martha Ellen Baldwin, are buried in the Dale Cemetery. A Rita Osborne has posted their daughter as Martha Lea Baldwin Jan. 22, 1926 - Feb. 12, 1926 Memorial #115079055. At the time she posted this child in the family, Claud & Martha Ellen Baldwin's daughter, Martha Lee Ellis was not deceased. I contacted Rita Osborne and gave her this information. I can no longer contact her and hope you can help me remove Martha Lea Baldwin from the family. Claud Baldwin Memorial #25409873 and Martha Ellen Baldwin Memorial #25410004 are the parents of Martha L. Ellis Memorial #137325739, wife of Jesse J. Ellis. Martha died May 1, 2014.
