Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a deep love for cemeteries. I love the art, the history, and the untold stories about each resident. I find it peaceful and thoroughly relaxing to walk through cemeteries. I'm working on several but the main one at the moment is Oak Grove Cemetery in Conway, Faulkner County, Arkansas.

I am a member of the organization called Preservation of African American Cemeteries
(PAAC).

I was born and raised here in Arkansas as were both of my parents and all of my grandparents.I started searching my genealogy in the Sixth Grade as a project and haven't stopped since.

Burkhart
I am searching for any information on my father who is listed as Frank Burkhart (Raymond Franklin Burkhart 1919-2003), who is listed as a field hand for Eligia and Georgia Talley in the 1940 Census. My father was a triplet from Pittsburgh. His father, mother, and older sister was wiped out in 1936 from Typhoid. I believe he had an uncle William Burkhart who may have moved to the Montgomery Ala. area and this would have been his only other relatives. His triplet sister and brother were killed as far as I know during WWII. Any info would be appreciated.

Libby, I found a grave marked -Rebecca Jane Goodnight, dates 1905-1986. It is shared with Robert Elvis Goodnight, 1888-1965. I did not want to leave the picture if this is not the correct person.

Sansom information
Hello. I am researching my Grandmother's family (She was a Sansom) and I reached a dead end at her Grandfather William Wiley Sansom. Gertrude "Lillie" Tally's mother was a Sansom and Grandfather was John Franklin Sansom. My Sansom's are from Chilton County (I was born and raised) and Dallas County. I've found one family in Dallas County but they moved on to Texas before William was born. There were Sansom families in various Alabama counties and I'm trying to make some sort of connection. Do you have any Sansom family information? Have you are a family member done the DNA so we may compare? I have mine, my mothers and my Grandmothers DNA. Thank you! Tim

African American Cemetery preservation
So happy to hear about your organization. I have been trying to find the identities of the African Americans that are buried in our Caddo county Oklahoma cemeteries. Would love to learn more about your organization.

RE: Lora Ransom
I am the Larry (Larry Ransom) that commented on this memorial recently. Lora was my grandmother on my fathers side of the family.

Lora was a twin. Her sister was Cora and she had brother(s) also. Her maiden name was McGlothlan. Beyond that, I will have to ask Dad to write something up.

We don't have man written records of prior to 1973 due to our home being destroyed by a Tornado. A few months later when our phone service was restored at our new home, dad got a call from a man who lived across town from us. My Grandparents wedding license would up in the front seat of his car!

What type of background/ bio are you looking for? Such as that provided in Obituaries?

Requesting a memorial transfer
Hello Libby,

I am still having problems with David McJonathan-Swarm. I requested a transfer of three memorials he has completely wrong but, I can't remember how to contact F.AG. Editors. Do you know how to go about this? We discussdedd this type of problem back in 2014, I've lost my notes!

Thanks,

Mary 47079221
