Surname: CHUPKO
Submitted on 1Apr2013 by

I have an old photo that was found in a trunk that had belonged to Polly Ben (Stephenson) Chupko.  In the photo is a young Indian wife/mother who is lying in her casket.  Her young husband, also Indian, is sitting in a chair holding their little baby.  I feel this young family is related to Polly Chupko in some way but they may not be, maybe just close to her family.  I would like to put names and a family to these people.  Probably the young mother had died in childbirth or soon after.

Did Pharoah, OK have a high school in 1931? If so, how would I determine if my aunt Beulah Elizabeth Pyle and her twin uncle Berlie Wesley Pyle graduated from there. One family story have them graduating from Weleetka, OK and the other from Pharoah.  Their mother was Anna and their father was Roy Pyle. Supposedly about that time Roy was involved (owned or managed not sure) with a drug store in that area.

Surnames: SHEARER
Submitted 12Feb2011 at: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.oklahoma.counties.okfuskee/784/mb.ashx

Looking for Jesse W. Shearer b. 1868 in NC and his wife Ella (Shannon) Shearer b. 1880 in NC. Each of them was living in Indian Territory in 1900 (Cherokee Nation, township 18). Probably married after the 1900 census. First child (Laura Shearer) born 1901/1902. By 1910 and 1920 they are in Moody, OK. In 1930 they are in Okfuskee Co., OK. I can't find either of them after 1930. Perhaps they died in this county, or perhaps they moved on to a new location. Any clues would be helpful AND appreciated.
