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.

Frances Baxter - Lakeside Cem.
Frances Baxter DOES have a headstone at Lakeside Cemetery. There is a double tombstone for her husband and herself. I do not believe she is buried there. Her husband died early and I believe she moved on; maybe even remarrying. We just finished inventorying all 25 acres of this cemetery and reconciling the data against the cemetery sexton's records. I did not find any record of Frances Baxter's death among these records. If you have further documentation, please advise.

I was completely unaware that they would take away the rights of the family to manage the memorial. I don't like that they do that. I'm in complete agreement with you on the fact that he should be inducted and honored. Reading up on all the history of him and his wife it was very fascinating. Now that I know you are a relative I need to ask you another question. Are all the Dales in the cemetery up there related?

I didn't realize it but if you make a grave famous the family can no longer be in charge of it?

Thought you might like to see. This may not be of interest. If not, forgive me for forwarding it. I know Oliver's memorial has most of this info. From The Eureka Herald newspaper.

Latter, Anna Luella (Easton) Eureka Herald July 09, 1936 page1/6
B. Dec. 24, 1858 rural Alden, Illinois
D. July 04, 1936 Eureka, KS

Anna Luella Easton was born Dec. 24, 1858, on a farm near Alden, MacHenry County, Illinois, and died in her home at Eureka, KS, July 24, 1936, aged 77 years, 6 months and 10 days. She was the youngest of five children of Benjamin and Mary Easton, all of whom have preceded her in death.
She was united in marriage to Oliver R. Latter March 1, 1878, at Alden, Illinois. In 1885 they came to Kansas and settled in Greenwood Co., near Tonovay, where they lived until 1895 when they moved to Eureka. Mr. Latter preceded her in death November 24, 1931.
Mrs. Latter united with the Methodist in early life and has been an active and devoted member. She loved her church and her greatest joy was when she was working for the church or helping someone in need. She was active in the Red Cross work during the World War, spending a great part of her time in the knitting room.
She is survived by five daughters; Mrs. C.A. Leedy and Mrs. E.W. Bradford, of Eureka, KS; Mrs. C.E. Spalding, of Stockton, KS; Mrs. V.V. Long, of Oklahoma City, OK; Mrs. Claude E. Lovett, of Stratford, TX; also nineteen grandchildren and a host of friends to whom she leaves a priceless heritage in the memory of a noble Christian life.
“Somewhere today, among the hills of Heaven
She walks, with all her stars around her,
And we, who lost her here on earth
Grow happy, knowing God has found her”

Funeral service was held from the First United Methodist Episcopal Church in Eureka July 06, 1936, at 10 o’clock, a.m., with Rev. Eugene Kramer, pastor of the church, officiating, assisted by Rev. C.E. Spalding, of Stockton, KS
Interment was in Greenwood Cemetery

I would like to pick up your photo request but Sparkman Hillcrest (SH) does not like to provide burial locations to volunteers, citing privacy issues. Your cooperation is needed in order for requests to be filled. The volunteers will need you to call SH and request the location. Their phone number is 214-363-5401. Once you have the location, please add it to your request. Thanks.

Back in June 2016 you requested a photo of the grave marker for the above.

If you go to the Atlee Cemetery in Jefferson County, Oklahoma, you will see there is a photo of the grave marker.

Thanks for the links for Lysander's parents, which I have added. His burial place was found in a online list of Leavenworth County burials organized by cemetery. What a find, as he had lived in Topeka such a short time, and the obit there wasn't specific about the name of the cemetery he was buried in.

RE: Sgt William H Schellenger

Refer to the following site:

If you have any questions let me know and I'll attempt to answer them.
