An aunt told me that there was a connection of the SHADWICK surname with Hobart, OK. She didn't say what. Would someone be kind enough to check, especially marriages, deeds and tribal links? Or give me possible sources to check from cold, cold Wisconsin? Family tradition says SHADWICKS were Cherokee/Osage who ended up in MO about 1838 from TN.

I'm searching for descendents of William Owen RILEY, b. c1870's, no dates as to birth or death, and his wife, Allie, no last name. William Owen is the father of 8-10 boys, one of them being my grandfather, Charlie Edwin RILEY, b. June 23, 1895, In Indian Territory, Hobart (?) Oklahoma. I do believe both families were in or near Hobart. His wife, my grandmother, was Nancy Mae(May) PERRY, b. Feb. 3, 1896, Texas. Charlie Edwin and Nancy Mae were married in 1914, in Hobart, OK. The boys of William Owen RILEY may have had a different mother than Allie, I was told that their mother died and their father remarried. I think that 2nd marriage may have been Allie. I also believe that quite a few of these descendents (from those 2 families) may still be in the Hobart area. Nancy's parents were James Perry and Aminta Christine Barger, b. Tennessee. Charley and Nancy left Oklahoma never to return. Both died in Eugene, OR, Nancy, Oct.4, 1951 and Charley, 1970's. Thank you for any help. Please contact Linda Adams at

I am searching for information on my family. My grandfather was Paul DAVIS, who married Gladys BAKER. My mother, LaMarylis, was their youngest child. Other children were Anna Paulene, James Lawrence, William Perry and Ralph Leo. William and Ralph died in a housefire when they were about 7 and 9 years old in Hobart, OK. Paul DAVIS was Sheriff for a while, later moving to Oklahoma City. My mother, LaMarylis, born in Hobart, Sept. 23, 1924, was raised by Charles L. HARRIS and his wife, Willie Sara (DAVIS). Uncle Charlie and Aunt Willie lived just west of Hobart. Later they ran a nursery for children, which they called a play school. Other DAVIS relatives in the area included Abe and Jay. I believe my grandmother BAKER and Charlie and Willie HARRIS are buried there. My mother, LaMarylis, worked at a bank in Hobart. When the first shipment of nylon hose arrived at Brown's Dept. Store next door, a reporter for the Dailey Oklahoman asked her to model them, which she did. Her picture was on the front page of the paper. If anyone has any information on this family, please contact Marcia Gray Long at
