Glenda Scarborough Tue Dec 23 1997
Hi, my name is Glenda Scarborough and am looking for information about William and Nancy Hartzell. They were married in Iowa in 1870 but later moved to Seiling, OK. William died in 1918 and Nancy in 1917. Both are buried in Seiling. I would like to find out where. Their children were raised mostly in OK and may still have descendents in the area. One of my sources lists their children as Asa, Curtis, Albert, Homer, Ben, Quincy, and Emma. Another lists them as Volen, Ace, Quincy, Clarence, Eva, Oscar, Ira Homer, and Benjamin. Quincy is my gr-gr-grandfather. He moved to Perry, OK then to Topeks, KS. Any information about the siblings would be very helpful. Thanks for any help. My e-mail address is

Kent Ireton Sun Nov 30 1997
I am looking for historical information on my great grandparents who were James C. Foust and Josephine (Tupper) Foust. I know that they were married September 10, 1883 (but location is unknown at this time). However, I know for certain that Josephine died in Putnam Oklahoma on April 19,1911. I hope that I have the county right as Dewey County.
If you could give me any information or any sources or ideas where I could look further, I would appreciate it. I am most interested in Josephine at this point to research her history.

The names of three young brothers (Herbert,, Glenn, and Ralph) appear on the back of their pictures.
