Sadly, Patricia Mechling has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find a Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find a Grave.
Having Cherokee Indian heritage going back 100's of years, I am related to so many in that Nation that I wanted to find them all and commemorate them. My Indian lines are Ward, Fields, and Stover, and the interrelated families are so numerous it took Find A Grave to offer the opportunity to compile burials, including many of the emigrators from overseas they married and loved and lived with, in the Cherokee Nation and Indian Territory.
