My grandfather, Benjiman Harlin WYNN, Jr., b. 23 Jan 1915 in Rush Springs, OK, d. Aug 1947 in Wink, TX, a dau. WYNN b. 23 Jan 1915 in Rush Springs, d. 23 Jan 1915, and Rolla WYNN b? There may have been another set of twins born to Nora and Benjiman, but they did not survive. Nora died in Lawton, OK in 1939 and is buried there. Benjiman Harlin WYNN, Sr., died in Lawton, OK in 1956 and is buried there. Nora had 3 sisters, Ola, Evie and Josie and one brother, Hugh HENDERSON?
