Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired and enjoy working on genealogy as a hobby. I have a masters degree from the University of Oklahoma and I'm using my research skills to hunt down my ancestors. is a terrific web site.
My ancestors include but are not limited to:
Allison, Campbell, Morris, Johnson, Holdsworth, Baird, Kirkpatrick, Phillippi, Worley, Sweeney, Vaught, Watson, Dale, Wheeler, Hoyt, Newman

I make an effort to connect husbands, wives and families using obituaries and census records.

As many of you know, I have spent hours taking photos in the Rose Hill Burial Park in Oklahoma City in order to create memorials. I also do research in the Oklahoma Historical Society Library for some of my memorials.

Member: Oklahoma Historical Society, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Civil War Trust, Friends of Mt Vernon, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, National Women's History Museum, Pulaski Co KY Historical Society, Cornerstone Genealogical Society (PA), Morrow Co OH Genealogical Society, Osborne Co KS Historical Society, Logan Co OK Genealogical Society.

Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

If you send a request for transfer of a memorial, please explain exactly how you descend, generation-by-generation, from that person.

My photos may be used in your family trees. They are not to be used in cemetery books/CDs that are to be sold.

RE: Henry & Eva McKay
I will try to get a better photo when I have someone with me...that one is a little fuzzy because I had to hold the shrub back with one hand and hold the camera back and try to shoot with the other.

RE: Ethel Griffith 93419129

You are welcome. I went way deep into a gopher hole on this tree. I started with William Truman LaField 179211056. It took a couple of days but it's all now on Find A Grave with source info on a lot of trees in ancestry. It was just missing one link page for William Truman LaField (179211056) to put them all in right order.

Please consider a bit of revision on Ethel's obit area as you do have a link to her half brother. His name is William Truman, not Truman William. You have it in a couple of spots. Some confusion came into all of it with William Sr passing and William Jr taking on Sr and his son Jr, Perhaps the 1952 William Jr should have been a III. All explained on middle William 179211056

Thanks for your help

Thank you for leaving the picture on my husband's memorial! He was dedicated to his country and the American Legion! Larry was a "true patriot"

I've sent you an email documenting her maiden name as Lijewski. It was not Wassman. Thank you in advance for your attention to my email.
