We live 3 miles north and ¾ east on E370 Road from Adair OK on the Thorne Ranch. Our old barn is still standing that my husband says was built by a family named Gunner in the 1900s ? I would like to find out anything I can about this family! He says that he raised mules and hauled freight with his mules in the area! Anything you can help me with would be greatly appreciated! We have contemplated tearing it all down but me being a history buff I hate to destroy all the history that this great old barn has seen! I use it in my Web Site Design and pictures several times! My true thoughts were to restore it and turn it into my horse barn.

Naaman A. Swingle of Mazie was my gtgdpa. In the Queries about Mayes County, Naomi Morgan asked about the robbery of the Southern State Bank 22 Apr 1923. My gtgdpa was one of the three incorporators who received the charter for the Southern State Bank in Mazie 23 Feb 1918. I found the robbery mentioned in the Muskogee County Democrat, Friday, 31 Aug 1923. The article is on the front page, above the banner. I found it through Does anyone have more information on the robbery? I don't know how long my gtgdpa was a part of the bank. He bought a place in California in July 1924.I guess there were more than one robbery. At rereading the newspaper headlines, the robbery I mentioned had taken place on Friday 24 Aug 1923 not 22 Apr 1923. I would be interested in information on the Southern State Bank including any of the robberies.

I am looking for information on Gr Granmother, Mattie Ash's husbands. Jesse HEADRICK,Wiley JONES & Doc GOINS. They all lived around Salina/Spavinaw/Pryor area.

Looking for information on My great great grandmother, Eliza Ann Calista Jane Pond Fedrick 1859-1905, according to the family Bible, is buried in Locust Grove. She is listed in the US Federal Census 1900 with her husband William Fedrick and children in Township 17 North, range 21 east, District 32. Her mother Isabelle unk, wife of John Marion Pond, b. 1808 Sumner Co.TN was said to be full blooded Cherokee. It is family rumor that Isabelle and John Marion Pond were in Oklahoma during the1890's

Need or would like a picture of John P. Marrs tombstone. His wife was Mary Matilda Deatherow b 30Sep, 1850-Cane Hill township in Washington Co., AR. D. Sep 26 1938, Ketchum, OK. Married Feb 6, 1870 to John P Marrs & was in the military. Found a record that shows he is buried in Langley Military Cemetery.

I am trying to find information on Mary Irene LAMM (b. ca. 1880-1888), a Cherokee woman, who married in 1903 Camden Co., MO to W. W. ADAMS. The marriage certificate states that both Mary Irene LAMM and W. W. ADAMS lived in "Prior Creek, I.T." . I have been unable to find what the W. W. stood for - so don't know his real name. Mary Irene and W. W. had at least two sons - Roy L (b. ca. 1904) and William O (b. ca. 1905) ADAMS. These boys were born near Bartlesville, OK. I think Roy L ADAMS might have been adopted out, and I'm not sure, but William O ADAMS might have died young or also may have been adopted out. What happened to Mary Irene LAMM ADAMS and W W ADAMS?
MORE INFO:Mary Irene (Lamm) Adams died 25 June 1907, and is buried in White Rose Cemetery, Bartlesville, Washington Co., OK. Her son, William O. "Ted" Adams, born 26 May 1905, died 23 Dec 1983, and is also buried in White Rose Cemetery. So if William O Ted Adams wasn't adopted out, I'm wondering about Roy. If W O Ted Adams was adopted out, then he took back his real name when he came of age. I still haven't located Roy L. Adams, nor have I proven what their father's name was, but I suspect that it was Walter William (or William Walter) Adams, and he may have moved to Hopkins Co., Texas - but that's unproven. In 1910, a Ray L Adams and William A Adams are listed as the grandchildren of Moses G Adams, but again, I have no proof they are one and the same people. I still need to search for the Adams family in earlier census records to get the line down. I know there was more than one W W Adams in OK.
