While traveling to Kansas City in April of 2005 we made a detour to Blanchard, Oklahoma, where some of our ancestors are buried. Blanchard is a pretty little town and looks a lot like East Texas to me. There were more trees than I had imagined.
As you can see, there is a beautiful tree just steps from my great-grandparents' headstone. They are in the foreground of the picture above.
Harvey Vandegar Puckett
May 27, 1871 - Feb. 19, 1958
Aug. 1, 1872 - July 17, 1954
I was standing looking southwest from my great-grandparents' grave when I took this photograph. It's a beautiful cemetery.
You can find more of my Puckett ancestors at my blog, Genealogy Traces, where I will be posting the other pictures that I took the day we stopped here to go down "memory lane."
