My Great grandparents are Daniel B. Cole and Wife Nannie or Nancy . Nannie, and her sister Nettie Lindsey Vann were in the Cherokee Orphan Asylum. Nannie was taken to Chief Samuel Mayes house to live with them as Chief Mayes wife was named Martha Vann before her marriage. She was the girls aunt..
What our family has never found out is what happened to Nettie Lindsey Vann after Nannie left? Could there be some kind of record of what became of her. I know the Orphan burned down in 1903
Does anyone have a group picture of the kids at the orphanage? My great grandparents were married in Chief Mayes home.

Looking for information on my Great great grandfather Joseph Mayes from Indian Territory (1910 Census), who married Bruna Avila from Mexico. Any information on my Great great grandfather and his family would be appreciated, as this is all that I have at this time.

Sharp & Burton are in my children's line. There was said to be Indian on the Sharp side. Don't know about the Burton line. Fred Leonard Burton was their grand father. His Father had two wives, so Fred had a step-mother. His Mother died when he was young. George Sharp & Ella was the other grand parents. George was supposed to be part Indian. Does anyone in Mayes Co. know or are related to these people? Larry Burton in Pryor is their Uncle. Would love to find some stories or history of the family or sir names. An Uncle, Earl Ramsey had a wife that was killed in a tornado years ago that wiped out the main street of Pryor.

I was able to find his mother via She was Mary Elizabeth Hamblin and she was born in 1841 in Tennessee and died in 1902 in Oklahoma. I am grateful for your time and any info you may be able to pass on to me. I look forward to your reply.
