Descendant

Alexis Clare Lovelace was born in Wichita, Kansas on 10 October 1945. Alexis is the daughter of Clare Alexander “Chick” and Clarice Marvin Lovelace. Chick Lovelace was killed in action in WWII, and Alexis was raised by her mother with help from her grandmothers, Pearl McCleery Lovelace and Nellie Long Marvin. Alexis lived in Enid, Oklahoma as a small child and grew up in Oklahoma City where she attended Northwest Classen and graduated from Putnam City High School in 1963.

Alexis Clare Lovelace '63

Alexis graduated from Oklahoma University with a B.S. in Art and English Education in 1967. While at Oklahoma University she served on the Student Senate and did the publicity for the engineering school. She was active in the Art Committee and her sorority Alpha Phi. It was there at O.U. that she met Mike Nelson at a Kappa Sigma fraternity party.

Alexis Clare Lovelace

They were married 27 Dec 1966 at St. John's Methodist Church, Oklahoma City in an ice storm. Alexis and Mike moved to Tahlequah, and Alexis did post graduate work at Northeastern University. Alexis and her husband moved to Valdosta, Georgia, and he became an Air Force pilot. Alexis volunteered teaching art classes in the Officers Club. They then moved to Warner Robins, Georgia, where Alexis gave birth to a baby girl, Michelle. They moved to Burkburnett, Texas in 1970. Then Alexis and Michelle, who was one year old, moved to Oklahoma City while Mike Nelson flew a rescue helicopter in Vietnam. They then moved to Enid for two years and then to Yorba Linda, California, where she had her second baby, a boy named Mitchell, in 1973. They then moved to Muskogee in 1977.

Alexis has been involved in working in her husband’s optometry office and the Muskogee community and her church. She held several offices in PTA, was a Brownie and Girl Scout leader, Cub Scout Den Mother, member of the League of Women Voters, on the board of Perspectives Women’s Resource Center, a lifetime member of Service League of Muskogee, board member of Eastern Oklahoma Spelling Bee, head of Joy of Giving Shoppe, a Deacon and Elder at the Presbyterian Church, and an officer in Muskogee Indian Territory Chapter of DAR.

Mike and Sherry Soper & Mike and Alexis Nelson

Alexis has traveled throughout the United States and to twenty foreign countries and islands in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and English Channel. Her teaching experience has been as a part time GED teacher at Georgia Pacific and Blvd. Christian Church; however, her long time GED teaching was at Grace Episcopal Church where she and Virginia Lipotich taught together 28 years. They had over 550 students complete the program and receive a State of Oklahoma High School Diploma. Alexis started teaching GED as a volunteer in January 2012 at Muskogee County Jail, and she still spends each Wednesday afternoon there.

Mike and Alexis

I like being part of DAR, as we are involved in various patriotic projects. Our DAR chapter is involved in the Naturalization Ceremonies at our local Federal Court House, and we provide a reception for our new citizens. We also help put out flags and wreaths at Ft. Gibson National Cemetery. I enjoy being active in my church and my community, and I am excited about the work I have been doing on genealogy. WikiTree has been a really great experience for me, as I joined in March 2017 without much knowledge. I was so excited when my grandmother, Pearl McCleery won photo of the week, and I even cried tears of joy when she won 2018 photo of the year. The trophy Eowyn Langholf sent has a special place in my dining room. I am still a real beginner, but I am gradually getting better with the kind help at WikiTree.

For my family: https://msfrommsproject.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/poem11.jpg

Family is everything
It defines you–the heart of your spirit, the heritage of your smile, not only the color of your eyes but how they see the world. You are bound by kinship
You add your own link to the chain, and that is where you strengthen or weaken what you have been blessed–or burdened—with.
That is where you use the indefinable quality that belongs to only you, the bit of uniqueness you pass on to your children for good or bad, the part of you that will always be separate from those who share your name, your blood, and your past.
– Deborah Smith, from Blue Willow

Thank you for adding the sources from the Revolutionary war index and muster roll to [[Standish-507|Moses Standish (1733-bef.1778)]. After giving it a closer look they were duplicates of ones I had already added those so I deleted them.

Hi, Alexis,

I would like to inform you that it seems none of the pictures on your profile can be seen. This most probably has to do with the privacy level they are set at.

Thanks for the note, Alexis! I am just taking a summer hiatus...family visits, graduations, landscaping and gardening usually take priority during this time of the year. Also transferring all of my VHS to flash drive USB sticks for the kids. Hope all is well! Scott

Hello Alexis,

I am new to Wiki Tree and inputting data. I found that we share Benjamin Hutton (1793-1860) as a direct ancestor. His granddaughter Martha Ann (Hutton) Thomas was my GGM. If I counted correctly, you and I are therefore 4th cousins. I live in York Co, PA were Benjamin lived after leaving Lancaster Co, PA (about 25 miles across the Susquehanna River). Until I started on Ancestry, I had no idea I had Quaker ancestors but living in Pennsylvania, I shouldn't have been surprised. I want to request joining your trusted list for the Huttons. Best wishes to you. Thank you, Martha Ann Thomas

You have peaked my curiosity.

Have you run your self against the president's and barons.

Because I see a lot of colonial names there. And yes you are related to George washington. I suspect you will have to separate michale woods from his daughter when you run royal lines. Because both Will have there own differant paths. I havent done it yet but I know the lines are seperate lines to differant people.

To use the gedmatch compare feature.

Just hit compare link by the profile showing DNA to a line.

That will open gedmatch.com, login and leave that page open.

Now go back to that compare link and hit it.

It will show your number. It will say add another! so just click on another one in the group who has gedmatch compare button showing.

Ok now you have the two kits to compare. Hit compare and it will load a default settings in a comparison tool. At gedmatch.com

If any segments come up, you will see where the matches are on each of the 23 chromosome.

It could be none to all.

I just figured it out why we do not match for dna but you match a cousin here and I don't.

Your grandmother and my grandmother are sister's

So no Y dna at all and possably no X genes for that surname.

So possably a son pr cousins y dna could match.

Or an mtdna test by your self and my sister.

But I think we are documenting half siblings by DNA. Just not sure whose who yet.

Checking it now. Will post any finds.
