RE: Oleta Brake
I know I hit the wrong button. What I know about this you could put in a Thimble and still have room for an elephant.
Oltea's mom, Mamie is my aunt, my mom was Bessie Mae Hodges Allen. I am her youngest son if you call 76 young.
Are you Oltea's daughter? I have very little on her and her mom. Can't find any marriage cirt. or dates.
I would appreciate any help that you can provide.
My e-mail is If you send me yours I will invite you to my site.

RE: Oleta Elizabeth Tanner
You are supposed to be able to add up to 5 photos! If you sponsor your mothers memorial it is only $5 and you can add all the photos you want.

The Lovington Cemetery is right up the road from my house but last week we had a lot of snow and I would bet the roads in the cemetery are so muddy I couldn't get to the cemetery office to find out where the grave is.

Let me see if I can request a photo. I loaned my camera to my daughter and haven't gotten it back. Maybe I could take a photo with my phone and send it to you?

If you will let me know when it is finished, I'll take and post an updated picture and remove the older one.

Melissa, Stinson's marker on the dual headstone is completely blank except for his name of Stinson R. I did go look at it today. Thought I would let you know.

Hi, Melissa, nice to hear from you. I will make a trip out to the cemetery tomorrow and check on Stinson's marker. Then I will let you know something. Good think his military marker has his dates. That helps some but not the same as his personal marker.

Walter Vanderslice at Iona Cemetery
I took pictures of every grave marker in this cemetery yesterday, and the only Vanderslice marker belonged to Laura Clementine Vanderslice, wife of R J Vanderslice.

If Walter is indeed buried in this cemetery, there is no marked gravesite for him.

No those are not bullet holes. It was a moss.
