My grandfather, William N. West, was a businessman in Spavinaw in the late 1890s-1900s. He was married to Clementine Shadle(s) in 1890. William and his brother, Walter A. both served in the Civil War under Stand Watie. Both are buried in the West Family Cementery just outside of Strang. When the dam was built in Spavinaw, my grandfather's house (supposedly a Mormon waystation built of rock) was covered by the lake. Sometime in the 1920s, a Tulsa newspaper ran a feature article about Spavinaw Lake with a picture of my grandfather's house. Would anyone in Spavinaw have any pictures of old Spavinaw before the dam was built and possibly some of the homes that were there then? Thanks

What information did you need about Laura? She is buried here in Pryor in the Fairview Cemetery. When registered for the Dawes Roll her address was Vinita, Cooweescoowee Dist, IT. According to the 1890 census entry, Cooweescoowee Dist; her occupation was "cook"

Many of the notes that I have about her was extracted from the 1896 application #3345; Joseph P. Parker, microfilm M1650-41. Laura submitted a statement verifing "L. Jett" as her "half-sister". Also, statement by James Taylor that she was the father of Laura Taylor & that Nicy Moss was the mother.

On her Dawes census card she listed her parents as "James Taylor & Nice DeArmond". But Laura stated on C/A #4998-51 that her father was "Ned Welch", and that her half-brothers were John E. Welch, Alford Welch & George Welch; all living in the C/N. Also statement on C/A #2956 that her father was "Ned or Edward Welch". She may have simply been trying to help the Welch family qualify for citizenship, but it is rather confusing.

Looking for any information I can find on my great aunt Leona. She along with 6 of her sibling (birth surname was Silvers: birth parents Quintes and Jennie) were put in Whitaker Ophans home in the early 1930's. Most of the kids found each other. My grandfather and one of his brothers were adopted by the Neely family. Kathleen and Jennie (also know as Ruth) were adopted by a family with the last name of Warren (we dont know where there are now). Would like to know anything about them also. And Leona was adopted by T. F. Walters from Oil Town or Oilton OK. The address at the time of adoption was Box 21. She would have been about 7 yrs old when adopted. My grandfather and brother Robert have been missing her for many many years and would love nothing more than to find her or atleast know what happen to her. They are both not in the greatest health and this would mean so very much to them. Please anyone with any information or anyone that could help look for info that lives in the area for me I would be forever in your debt. You can email @

I am looking for information on my great great grandfather, Elias T. "Tank" Rollins, who died "near Adair" in 1894 when it was still part of the Cherokee Nation. It is now located in Mayes County, Oklahoma. He was born May 2, 1851 in Indiana. The family migrated to Kansas after he married. He was in the area with his wife, Cecelia Rosalet Love Rollins and their children and some of his Love relatives. None of them stayed in the territory too long before returning to Kansas and any record of his final resting place has been lost to time.

Any assistance or a point in the direction of where to possible begin looking would be greatly appreciated.

I recently found Kibble (Kibb) & Susie Stovall in the Cherokee census (Susie's family was Cherokee). I am interested in the family of his son, KeeKee, born Feb. 27, 1895.

Kibble is a brother of my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth (Stovall) Geisler, and there is a family picture in which I can identify positively only Kibble and his son KeeKee. Others in the photo are a woman, likely Susie, holding a young child, an older girl, and a young girl.

Kibble died in 1922, according to a cemetery listing (if someone has a precise date I would appreciate the information - Chouteau Cem., center section, south side, two graves, 80a, Infant Stovall, aged 6 months, and 81, Kibble T. Stovall, 1853 - 1922).

Susie (Susan C.) died September 22, 1962, and is buried in the Sallisaw City Cemetery, Oklahoma, again thanks to a cemetery book for the information.

If someone has information or later pictures of this family that could be of help identifying this picture, I would appreciate your contacting me. I can help with copies of my photo, as well as some information on the Stovalls in Johnson Co., Arkansas.

Peggy Tolman is listed as the informant on a death certificate for Emmer Margaret Mitchell Brown, who was the second wife of John Harvey Brown. John Harvey and Emmer are buried next to each other in the Fairfield Cemetery. Peggy also helped pay the funeral expenses for John Harvey Brown and she is listed as living at 311 East 3rd street in Tulsa.

I suspect Peggy is the long lost sister to my mother. There are very few Tolman's in OK. Any help would be appreciated

I was wondering if anyone might possibly have (or be able to find) some information about my great-grandparents who lived in Mayes County (River), Oklahoma during the 1930 Federal Census. My great-grandparents were R. O. Allen (b. 1885 in Texas) and Alta Allen (b. 1888 in Wisconsin). I believe his name was Robert (but I'm not sure if that is correct) and I am also not sure of Alta's maiden name. Their children were Raymond (b. 1915 in OK) and Ben (b. 1923 in OK). Raymond is my grandfather (deceased), who married Rena Mae Veatch and resided in Enid, Oklahoma.
If anyone has (or could find) any information that they can share with me, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
