If you have a chance, please visit the grave of my sweet, amazing grandmother Letha Mae Wofford who passed away on June 9, 2020. She was my mother figure, teacher, counselor, and best friend.


Board Member, East Union Cemetery, Manteca, California

My paternal grandfather immigrated to the US from the Philippines in 1928. He was part of the first generation of Filipino agricultural workers to come to California. Therefore, I have a special interest in documenting and preserving the graves of immigrants from Asia, particularly those before World War II.

I have worked with the Chinese Benevolent Association of Stockton to document and research its affiliated Chinese Cemetery in French Camp. I have also focused on many other Chinese and Japanese cemeteries, as well as locating the graves of early Filipino immigrants. My maternal grandparents are from Oklahoma. I have done a lot of work with their family cemeteries there.


CENTER CEMETERY, Pontotoc County, Oklahoma

In June 2007, my grandmother and I did a complete photographic survey of Center Cemetery where her family is buried. I have also done extensive research into its history and unmarked burials. If you have any questions about this cemetery or would like to donate to its maintenance, please contact me.
