Bio

I am 48 and a mother of 5 and 2 granddaughters. I work full time as a nurse practitioner. Genealogy has been a hobby of mine since 1996. I have researched my former spouse's family (Broyles) and my current spouse's (Williams) family.

I have helped expand my maternal side (Riesbeck/Meier) that my aunt started over 30 years ago by hand and my father and I are reseraching his parent's families currently (Sellers/Abbott).

Families I am currently searching:

Arkansas: ANGELETTI, BROYLES/BROILES, CREEKMORE, NEWMAN, WOODARD (Germany/Italy)

Ohio: MEIER/MEYER, MILLER, NELSON/NELLESON, RIESBECK/RISBECK/REASBECK, SCHANTZ, STABLER/ABLER, VERFERS/VERFER (Germany)

Oklahoma: ANDERSON, BERRY, BROWN, CAMP, ETHRIDGE/ETHERIDGE, McCURTAIN, TABOR, WATSON, WILLIAMS (England/Scotland/Choctaw/Cherokee)

Pennsylvania: ABBOTT, FLUCK/FLUKE/PFLUG, HECK, IMLER/EMLER, KNISLEY/KNISELEY, LONG, SELLERS/SILLERS, TROUTMAN, WHARTON/WARTON, WHITSEL/WETZEL/WITSEL, ZIMMERMAN (Germany)

I would be glad to send headstone pictures from any location in these counties:

Arkansas:
Crawford, Sebastian, Franklin, & Washington

Oklahoma:
LeFlore & Sequoyah

I have extensive photos of these three cemeteries on file:
Piney(Concord)- Mulberry, Arkansas -Broyles family

Newberry Chapel- Alma, Arkansas - Broyles & Creekmore families

Skullyville (Choctaw cemetery)- Spiro, Oklahoma

I have easy access to Hontubby & Loving (Oklahoma) cemeteries.

I also own a rare library copy of "A History in Headstones" from the late 1960s and early 1970s for Crawford County Arkansas. Many of these cemeteries no longer exist due to two recent water reservoir projects, Lee Creek and Lake Fort Smith expansions in the past 15 years but I can find headstone information in this book. It is a treasure for it gives directions/history of the cemeteries in most cases.
