I am hunting for JOE ONG who was on the 1920 census for Push county.On the census he shows to be 47yrs old and married to Florence they had a daughter named Minnie.We are not real sure if Joe was his first name. Maybe it was his middle name. Any info on ONG is probably related. Joe would be my great uncle. His brother is Bill Ong my great grandfather.I also need info on him.

Does anyone know anything about the great flood of 1916 in Pushmataha County, OK? My family story is that the water came up fast; everyone went up to the Moyers schoolhouse because it was on high ground. The fathers went out in rowboats to rescue people from their second story windows. Everyone slept wrapped in quilts on the schoolhouse floor. The mothers cooked together. It was three days before the water began to go down and people could begin to go back to their homes. Are there any newspaper accounts of this flood, or any older people around who might remember it? Please e mail me if you have any further information. Thanks!

My 93 year old grandmother, who grew up in Moyers, Pushmataha County, OK, was telling me today about Christmas when she was a child. She was born in 1907, so we are talking about the years 1912 to 1922 or so. She told all about the big event of the Christmas season, the school pageant at Moyers School. The wooden school was outside of town at first, but later they moved it into town. Even later, a new brick school was built. The schoolhouse had a big tree put up in it ("It went clear up to the ceiling of the schoolhouse") and the children made most of the decorations. It had candles on it when Grandma was small; later, in the late teens, it had electric bulbs. (Grandma's Sweeten family got electricity in 1916; I'm guessing the school probably got it about the same time. ) All the children participated in the Christmas program; they sang carols, recited poems, and put on little plays. Grandma recalls her favorite play that she was in, playing a world traveler who had come home to Moyers for Christmas and telling all about the exciting things she had "seen" all over the world! Each child had a small present wrapped up under the tree; I asked her if the parents provided the presents, and she said No, Santa brought them! She said there was almost always snow on the ground at Christmas and they went sledding and threw snowballs. The only store at Moyers then was a company store called the commissary that sold only groceries, so they had to go into Antlers to buy presents. They went about once a month, in a wagon. Her daddy would take the kids to buy surprise presents for their mother. Grandma's favorite present was a big doll one year.I have a picture of her holding it. Grandma's name is Betty Gaynell Sweeten; in 1925 she married Dewey Poole. She recalls Christmas in Moyers as happy time; going into the forest to cut a tree, decorating it, making and buying presents, and having special foods and songs.She remembers the year a boy named Mike Emory (Embry?) gave her a "diamond" ring for Christmas;she caught it on the clothesline and hurt her finger! I just thought all of you who are interested in Pushmataha County would like to hear these little bits of history.

I'm searching for my Grandfather and Grandmother's marriage record. I went to the county clerk in Pushmataha county in Nov 2000, but didn't find any information.

According to my Grandmother(deceased now) she was married by a cousin who was a minister at that time. They were married February 17, 1913. I know that my Grandfather was living in Nashoba at the time of their marriage and the records might be there.

[NOTE: Query being posted to LeFlore Co., OK and Pushmataha Co., OK from Oklahoma Unknown Co. Query board.]

This person's inquiry was posted on another genealogical
web site I recieve. Since it is Oklahoma related I thought
it should be posted here. Hopefully someone can assist in
getting this document back to the CASTO family.

I have a smaller than pocket-sized notebook belonging to World War II veteran William David CASTO from Oklahoma, possibly Kosoma or Talihina. This little book seems to cover the period 1943-1945 and is full of his handwritten notes, names and addresses, information about his military enlistment, where he was stationed and such. There is a tiny black and white photo of William D. CASTO taped to the cover and another on the first page. He was in the Navy, serial no. 886-95-28. The only other CASTO name in the book is Mrs. Lydia CASTO, General Delivery, Kosoma, Oklahoma. I would like to return this to Mr. CASTO's family.

Susan Wood Reynolds Tue, 21 Nov 2000

My Daddy, Melvin Wood, was born in Lindsay, Garvin County,OK to Holson L. Wood b. 1910 Sardis, Pushamataha, OK and Dovie Opal DeBurger Wood, b. Faster, Garvin County, OK. Grandpa's father was Thomas Jefferson Wood, b. 20 Mar 1851 in Ouachita County, AR d. 1937 in Lindsay m. Sarah Katherine Revelle (b. 1878 in MO death date unknown but sometime after 1920 as she is on that census) in 1897 somewhere on the banks of the Red River in TX. The couple subsequently moved to Sardis (Tuskahoma), Choctaw Nation which became Pushmataha County, where Thomas owned a grist mill. They are in Sardis for the 1910 and 1920 census, then moved to Broken Bow, McCurtain County at some point. I don't know when Thomas moved to Lindsay or nearby Foster which is where my Grandmother's DeBurger family lived or Purdy. A family photo is from the 1929-1932 timeframe and marked Purdy.At least Holson and daughter Verna were there with him, as they married DeBurger siblings - Grandpa to Dovie Opal in 1934 or 1935 and Verna to George Clifford. I think Beulah and Victor were likely there and possibly George and Eli and Joe Penny Wood was at least visiting (picture spoken of above is of his children). Minnie was married by 1910 to Cephas James, Joe Penny was married with children in 1910, his wife dying that same year and his children living with Thomas Jefferson and Sarah in Sardis (Arthur) and with Minnie and Cephas James (Robert and Emma) near McAlester in Pittsurgh County. Nassie was married and living in Sardis not far from Thomas Jefferson and Sarah in 1910 and I believe the older Thomas was there as well. Nassie and Tom both moved to Broken Bow. My Daddy says that anyone by the last name of Wood in Broken Bow is our kin. This may not hold true now, but it did when Daddy was young and may still be true today. We still have kin in Broken Bow and other parts of McCurtain County.

Thomas Jefferson Wood had at least three wives - we think it was actually four - and 21 children. I know there are still DeBurger cousins in Lindsay, Paul's Valley and Wynnewood and I believe there are still Wood cousins there, too. In looking at census records, there were not many Wood families in Garvin County and I believe they may well all be connected. Many of the children went on to live in Phoenix, AZ and in and around ORange County, CA. Some of the children of Thomas Jefferson Wood are:

By probable first unknown wife, possibly ?? Penny:
Mary Catherine b. Nevada County, AR, 1871
Izadara (Isadore(a)), b. Nevada County, AR 1872
Nanil (Nancy), b. Nevada County, AR 1873
Charlie, b. Nevada County, AR 1874
Joe Penny, b. 1876-1879 (depends on the document, 1879 by 1880 census)Nevada County, AR

By Janie Love (probably 2nd wife, but some family records indicate she was mother of above children. What we have found suggests probably not)
Nassie b. Nevada County, AR 8 Jan 1888
a second Joe b. Nevada County, AR abt 1886

by unknown wife, probably 3rd
Eli, b. AR after 1886. I have date but can't locate
George, b. AR
Oler (male) b. 1894, AR
Minnie Ola (also called Oler) b. 1891?, AR
Clarence b. AR
Thomas b. AR

By last wife, Sarah Katherine Revelle
Thomas J., b. TX or Indian Territory, 1900
John Lloyd, b., TX or IT, 1905
Vera Ethel, b. IT, 1907 d. CA
Holson L., b. 1910, Sardis, OK d. 1982, KY
Beulah, b. Sardis, OK 1913, d. CA
Verna Agnus b. Sardis, OK 1917
Victor Lee, b. Sardis, OK 1920

The name of the 21st child is unknown.
Dates for the first and last groups of children are taken from my Grandfather's Bible and are duplicated in his cousin Emma's Bible and were also given by a cousin in MN. Dates for the third group have been gleaned from newly found cousins and SSDI records.

Does this very large family ring any bells with anyone? Would anyone be able to do a death records lookup on Thomas Jefferson Wood? I suspect his parents were Handy C. Wood b. 1804, NC and Nancy ?? who was also possibly a Wood, b. 1816-1820, AL. They had a large family as well, and census records seem to bear out my theory, but I have no hard proof at this time. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Susan.

href="http://cgi.rootsweb.com/~genbbs/genbbs.cgi/USA/Ok/Pushmataha/134">History of Moyers/Antlers, posted by Johnnie Griffin on Mon, 02 Oct 2000

Johnnie, regarding your query about William Eugene Rutledge in Pushmataha Co, IT and OK. My grandmother, Betty Gaynell Sweeten Poole, also was born in 1907 in Push. Co., IT. She is still living, age 93, and remembers your father. She pronounces his name YOU Gene. She says "We was kids together....He used to be my sweetheart. Our teacher was Miss Frederick, and sometimes Miss King and Mr. Portoff: He was some kind of foreigner. First the school was way out in the country, then they moved it into the town. Later they built a big brick school. He was a big boy, with big shoulders. He had dark hair, kindly bushyheaded. He had a large face, and kindly of a funny looking mouth. When he talked, he moved it all around. " She doesn't know exactly when he left Moyers; she thinks he was a teenager. " When there was no more lumber, the people scattered out." She doesn't tell all of this in continuity; just answers individual questions like "What did he look like?" But clearly she recalls her school days and knowing your father. I know this is not a lot of information, but I thought you'd like to hear it anyway. Katherine

Robbie Robinson Fri, 25 Aug 2000

I'm searching for info on my g-g-grandmother, Martha Josephine FITZGERALD. She was in the Pushmataha Co. 1910 census of Antlers living with her son Robert D. FITZGERALD (38), his wife Lola B. (33), & their children Alfred (14), Luther D. (13), & Walter Dall (6). She was the 69 year old widow of Alfred McElroy FITZGERALD w/her own income (maybe a Civil War Pension) & was born in North Carolina. Her maiden name was KISTLER. Her children had all been born in Mississippi & Texas. I've found a photo of her daughter Sarah "Maggie" Margaret FITZGERALD (Mrs. Wiley ROBBINS) standing by a 4 ft tall grave monument that read, as far as I can tell, Martha FITZGERALD April 10, 1848 to Sept. 2, 1914. I think it might have been taken in the 1930's. I suspect she died in or near Antlers & would love to be able to confirm it. Robert's family was in Finley in the 1920 census w/out her, of course. I've not been able to find them in the 1900 Indian Territory census although all of Martha's other children & their families were in Coalgate in the future Coal County and Atoka County, OK. I believe they may have lived in Love County, OK for a while in the 1890s.
I'd be very interested in finding out more about Robert's family, too. In 1920, Robert's son Alfred (24) was newly married to Jenne (16) & living 2 families away from his parents in Finley. Thank you.

Am searching for info on William R. Sanders who was in Nashoba in 1920-1930's. His parents were Aaron and Elizabeth Dehart Sanders. He had two daughters, Gertrude,
who married a Johnson and was in Nashoba in 1950's and Myrtle, who married Watson and moved to Arizona. He also had a son, Bert, who died in 1940. Bill also could have had a brother named John. Bill's wife's name was Molly. He later married Ada Gilreath Ward, and had two sons, one of which was me. They divorced in 1940, the year I was born, so I never knew him. If anyone has any info, could they PLEASE contact me? Thanks.

I am looking for information on my grandfathers family. I was told he was born on the Pushmataha reservation around 1917. Yet, I still haven't even been able to find out if it was in fact a reservation before it became a county. My grandfathers name was Delbert Joseph Huggins.
Thank you
