*************************************************

*********** A SAD DAY IN AMERICAN HISTORY ***********

Update: April 19, 2015

It has now been 20 years since the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995.

Please pay your respect to all those killed that day in the America's Kids Child Development Center. (virtual cemetery of the same name). Thank you...

**************************************************
April 19, 2012

I have created a virtual cemetery for the children who were killed in the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. They were on the second floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in the America's Kids Child Development Center. It includes the Director of the Center, 2 workers, and a visitor.

If you would like to pay your respects, it has been 17 years on April 19, 2012.

I loved Dick Clark, but I think it is a sad commentary of the times we live in where people are so caught up with movie stars and music stars, etc. Within "minutes" of Dick Clark's passing he had 700 plus messages left on his Find A Grave memorial page. Most of the little children who were killed in the bombing of their Day Care Center in Oklahoma City, have received less than 20 messages over the last 17 years, since they were killed.

Just a thought...

I was leafing through the newspaper and found this. Also If you would like the piece I found on him I would be glad to send it to you. There is a Photo of him there but I am not to great at this.

I found your site by googling the disaster to read more about it. At the time of this his mother was there visiting and she told the story of what she seen. Very devastating to read. She was almost a victim herself with his wife and daughter.

look up your uncle before he died

I noticed your comment to Danny regarding the memorial and your wish to know more about him.

There is information available in the documents available at Ancestry.com and many other genealogy sites. I spend a lot of my time on Ancestry researching my ancestors and relatives.

You just have to learn where to dig in the obscure files and documents.

RE: Jewell Gentry
Barbara,

If you change your burial location to the Dewitt Cemetery, I will delete my entry. I will add the picture of the headstone to your entry.

Thanks,
Larry

Samuel Kress
Thanks for your message about Mr. Kress. I came to know him when I was working at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco in 1994 and we had the Samuel H. Kress Collection on exhibit there. When I saw there was no biography for him on findagrave, I added it. He is a man that should not be forgotten. He gave so much to so many small towns (and big cities) across the country.
