Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rita June Collvins Mayfield. I was born February 20, 1942 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. I married Vernon Roy Mayfield on April 16, 1971. My primary hobbies are gardening, oil painting, genealogy and of course cemeteries. There is something comforting about strolling through the cemetery and reading the stones. I have recently moved to Cordell, Oklahoma, but have lived in Oklahoma most of my life. Once an Okie, always an Okie. I am slowly trying to get all my family memorialized here. My virtual cemeteries represent my family, unless otherwise noted. I am going to make them public once again, and hope I can leave them without the misuse that occurred previously.

If I have a memorial that is anyone in your family, and is unrelated to me or my husband, I will be glad to hand it over to you as I don't adhere to the 4 generation only guideline, just contact me. I count it a joy and a job well done if I am able to pass on your loved one to you. It is my number two reason for doing this, second only to wishing to save all the old and battered stones from being lost forever. If you find errors on any of the information on my memorials, please get in touch with me with corrections. You are welcome to use my tombstone photos on your family files and family trees, just note where you got it.

Please don't post death certificates or census reports in the picture area on my memorials. They don't belong there and are detrimental to the looks of the memorial, plus it takes up room where photos could be placed.

Bertha Paulyn (Pauline) Cleveland
Bertha Paulyn is actually Bertha Pauline Baker.
Her death certificate has her name as Pauline. We have emailed before. My family is Baker, my 3rd Great Grandfather and his son Jasper Carrol Baker was my 2nd Great Grandfather and his brother William Jordan Baker was the Grandfather of Jasper Edward Baker.

Benjamin Franklin Thomas nee Ben Frank Thomas
Hi Rita:
I believe a Jennifer, you and myself had in the
past worked on Benjamin Franklin Thomas
#46940440. I posted his Death Certificate on the
Memorial Site which was under name of
B.Frank Thomas. Jim Mayfield was the informant.
How was he related?
If you do not wish Death Certificate posted
on the memorial site I will delete it.
I don't think we have found any new info on this
man, correct?

Sincerely,
Diane L. Teague Webb

Why did that post twice? A census transcription isn't THAT exciting.

Sorry.

1890 Cherokee census
Im at my local genealogy library today.

And I ran across a 2 volume set from Heritage Books Inc. of The 1890 Cherokee Nation Census Indian Territory (Oklahoma) It looks fascinating.

Do you have any interest in this and maybe not have easy access to a copy? It looks like it could be helpful in linking spouses and children. And some have occupations recorded.

I am being very much the general genealogy geek here.

RE: Infant Daughter Adler
Great!

I'll redo my search of "Infant" first name on your memorials in a day or two.

I could have entered memorial 2 from your info for 1 and sent a name correction (my usual practice) but that felt like cheating since we are having a nice messaging chat. There is no need whatever for me to "own" that memorial.

RE: Infant Blake
The site rules were recently amended to allow DC postings as photos, likely when the photo limit was quadrupled. Grrrr.

I'll take a very slow tour through your memorals for infant flowering. I have a VC with about 1,300 people under 21.
