The roof of it has caved in, but it is still there. I have looked and searched for any information about the school but have hit road block after road block. Any information about the school (year built, year disbanded, attendee, etc..) would be much appreciated.

Was wondering if there might be a list or any info concerning past ministers/members of Sealy Chapel. Also, if there is any info available on Sealy Cemetery, not so much who is  buried there, but the history behind it.  I am, in particular, researching Forbus Cravatt. He must have lived nearby, as he spent much time there,  even days. He also worked in cleaning up and repairing cemetery.  Does anyone have a book on land deeds/records for either county?

Searching for any information on my paternal great-grandmother, whose name before she married my great-grandfather (Farley Ladd) was Beulah Rowden. She had a 3-year-old son named Everett or Thomas Everett Rowden when she married Farley in 1910. So, I'm not sure if Rowden was a married or a maiden name. There is a listing of a marriage July 9, 1905 between B. A. Rowden and Bulah Nimms on the Chickasaw Nation Marriages, Ardmore Courthouse web page. The listing also reads "Belton/Pontotoc, I @ 276." I've always been told that Beulah was 1/4 Cherokee, but with no knowledge of a maiden name or names of her parents, I'm having trouble getting anywhere on the Dawes or other tribal rolls.

I found in Midland Cemetery George Washington Roberts b Feb 1847 d 1931. Listed on Find A Grave as a “Civil War Veteran Co. B, 15th TX Cav-CSA” (same as Thomas Grider), They Served under Geo B Pickett.
“Betty” is shown on ancestry.com as b. 18 Jun 1856 d 16 Aug 1938 Midland, OK – I haven’t found where she is buried. I wonder if someone can look in the Rosedale cem book and see if there is a Walter Hue Roberts? Walter is shown on the SSDI b 11 May 1895 d Feb 1969 Ada OK. I think he is a son of GW Roberts  & Betty Barrett. Maybe he is in Rosedale cemetery.  
George Washington Roberts is a brother of my gg grandmother Naomy “Jane” (Roberts) Grider who married Thomas Grider. “Jane” & Thomas Grider are buried in Old Johnsonville Cem Byars, McClain Co OK.
One of George Washington Roberts daughters was Martha “Annie” Roberts. “Annie” married George Washington Maner. (Annie & G.W. Maner are buried in the Memorial Park Cem in Ada.)

Surnames: CONROY, BRITTON
Submitted on 13Jul2010 by Bob Conroy
Seeking information about Roy and Carol Britton of Ada, OK.  Roy was President of Carroll Oil Company who survived an American Airlines plane crash in Springfield, MO in 1955.  My grandparents Homer and Rose Conroy lived in Ada during the 1950's.  Carol was supposedly related to Homer but I don't know how.  Can anyone provide any data about the Britton's, the Conroy's in Ada (Rose died in Ada on June 12, 1953), or the Carroll Oil Co.?  Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

I am trying to when and where he married.  HE was married to Alice Bertie Ledbetter in Pontotoc county somewhere. He is buried in Rosedale Cem with his wife.  He died 1941.  He had a daughter named Inez who was born Apr. 1916.  It is said he married in Ada. In 1930 Census he said he married at age 44.  This puts it about 1912.  He was born Jan 1868 in Tn. This is all I have on him, can someone please help me.

Submitted by Margaret Foster-Bradley on 29May2010

Looking for pictures of my mother Inez FISHER-Foster. In particular her mother Claudye FLEMING-Fisher w/o Chester Fisher. She died young, my mother was 7, and I haven't been able to find any pictures of her.  She taught school at some point.  I'm hoping for a school picture of her.  I found the families on the 1900 Roff census . Wm Fisher was Mayor of Ada.  Rob't Fleming had a Candy Store & possibly a market.  The adopted son was Clyde Richardson Fleming.  The Flemings moved to San Antonio, TX where they had a small Grocery store. The Fishers  were Active in the Baptist Church, Eastern Star & Veterans rights.. After her mother's death, Inez Fisher lived w/ her Aunt Marguerite Fisher-Crowder.  Later with her Fleming grandparents in San Antonio, TX. Any info will be a blessing as I am almost 83 and would love to see a pic of my grandmother Claudye.
