Seeking information on Sterling Price Green and his son, Alva Causey Green, b Aug 14, 1908, and daughter, Libby, b 1910. They were living in Dent township, Pottawatomie Co. in 1910 and 1920 censuses, but we believe the nearest town was Prague, Lincoln Co., so we think that their births may have occurred in Prague. We believe that Alva Causey may have been named after his doctor, and we have heard that there was a Dr. Cossey in Prague. The similarity of the names makes us wonder. We have descendent info to share. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, the name O.G. Robertson sounds familiar. Anyway, any information would be wonderful.

My grandmother, Leddie May (Lancaster)Henson, was born February 3, 1901, north of Meeker,Oklahoma Territory in Lincoln County, daughter of Jesse Tenion and Martha ElDora (Flowers)Lancaster. She did not know what tribe her Indian ancestry from the Flowers family was, but did pass down a song from her grandmother. Can anyone identify the language of this song, which I hope supplies a clue to the tribe her grandmother belonged to:

Go sha Thribe I sha Thran-o-law;
Go sha Thribe I sha Thran-o-law;
Sa neer I nee, sa nee sha, Gosha Fau;
Go sha Thribe I sha Thran-o-law.

The song was written down just the way it sounds. Translation in part: I have a Father in the Promised Land...And I hope some day we'll all go there...Way over in the Promised Land. Thanks for any help
