I am looking for a Bible Record.  It was used when Etoile Laird Wright who married Thomas Arnison Johnston joined Mayflower Society.
Etoile was descended through the Cushman’s and Wrights so I am not sure of the name for the  Bible Record.  I believe that she did not have any children so therefore that is a dead end, though I am going to try to find her obituary.
Any assistance will be welcomed.

The 1910 Kentucky census shows Ernest 33, Pearl 26 and Sara 9 livings in Gilmans, Jefferson, KY. On 31 July 1910, Ernest died from appendicitis at age 34.

Looking for our cousin, James "Jimmy" Gray, born circa 1946. His parents: Thomas J. Purcell, Jr. (b.1909 Chicago) and Margaret Carr. After Thomas's death in 1950 Margaret "Marge" remarried; her spouses's surname was Gray. He apparently adopted Jimmy. They lived in Tulsa, OK. They had a daughter, Joanna. Marge's 2nd husband may have died prior to 1960. We are told that Marge was still living as of 1991.

We have two photographs of Jimmy as a youngster, as well as his wedding photograph from Monroe Studio in Tulsa.

In 1900, my cousin Ernest Moore married Pearl Scott Moore in Jeffersonville, IN. In 1910, Ernest, a streetcar motorman, died from appendicitis. Ernest was 34 years old and besides his wife Pearl, he left a daughter Sara nine years old. Ernest is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.
I have never been able to find out what happened to Pearl and Sara after Ernest's death. But recently, I learned that Murray Frakes, Pearl's father and his wife and his children all moved to Tulsa, OK around 1910-1915. Maggie married into the Mcintire family. Lewis never married. Henry married Estella Hedgecock and had several children. Blanche married the brother of her father's third wife Josephine Stinnett.
This still leaves me with the question, what happened to Pearl?
Ernest Moore's father was Nichols Moore, my grandfather's brother. There were 16 Moore children born in Madison County, KY or Fayette County, KY. My mother Ruth Mary Moore, born in Frankfort, Ky., was the daughter of James Clay Moore the 15th Moore child. Sara is on of the missing cousins that I yet to locate.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Trying to find out when my great grandfather died in Tulsa. I know it was sometime between 1911 and 1912. His name was Taylor McGuire, his wife was Zarilda White McGuire. He was alive when the Tulsa Resident type phone book came out, but was not reported in 1912. My great Grandmother reported she was a widow. They lived on Detroit St. in Tulsa..

Surname: MOCK, MACK
Submitted on 1Jan2013 at: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.oklahoma.counties.tulsa/2758/mb.ashx
Looking for information on the D. M. MOCK (or MACK) who lived Sand Springs, Tulsa Co., OK when the 1930 census was taken. He was age 29, b. AR, parents b. OH/IN, and worked in the Oil Fields. His wife was Mattie, age 34, b. MO, and he had three step-daughters, Liddie, age 13, b. MO, Ruth, age 11, b. MO, and Billie, age 9, b. MO. The step-daughters' surname was TABEL or TOBEL.
I suspect that this man could be the Dewey MOCK, b. 27 Mar 1899, who was a son Calvin Louis and Melissa Ann (NOE) MOCK. Dewey had some first cousins who lived in Tulsa Co., OK, but that could be a coincidence, and not proof that D. M. MOCK is Dewey MOCK. I would appreciate whatever information anyone might have on D. M. MOCK.

I heard from the Tulsa library that there were no death records for this Phillip S. Gallaspie. He was born Oct. 31st 1881 or 80, in Ohio. His marriage to Jennie Kester was in Mt. Gilead, Ohio in 1904. He is listed as being from Defiance, Ohio What we also know is that he was working in the oil fields in Hartford City, Indiana, before they moved to Tulsa in I'm guessing 1916 or so.
Some info I've seen from the Tulsa phone directories say this:

1. Jennie owned a boarding house on Archer street and ran a cafe/restaurant. (I don't know if pictures were taken of this establishment, or what it was called? But it's circa (1917 to about the 1930's).

2. Phillip worked at I think it says Reid's Gas and Machine?
3. Phillip is listed as (Wid) on Jennie's directory listing in 1935, a year before her death on the street.
Not too sure how to go about researching that further, but if anyone has any thoughts or suggestion's please let me know.

I have already tried to email two people who's email address came up when I pressed on the surname "Sanderson" on the Oklahoma Gen Web site. My Sanderson ancestors have been one of the most difficult to find information on. My great great grandfather Robert Sanderson, moved sometime between 1901 and 1909 to Tulsa Oklahoma with his son Charles Arthur Sanderson and family. They resided together. I found them (along with Charles sister ... surname Cole) in the Tulsa 1910 census. In the 1920 census Robert is not there and neither is the sister. I believe she moved on to California, but given the time I think that Robert Sanderson must have passed away between the two census years.  Can you help me at all? I would like to know when Robert Sanderson passed away as well as his son Charles and where they might be buried. If you can't help with the information can you point me in the right direction as to where to look? I have tried the IGI as well as Ancestry and there is no information on my Sanderson line in Oklahoma. They moved from Cook County, Chicago to Oklahoma, but Charles was born in Michigan and Robert was born in England.  I hope you can help with my search.

I am trying to research an individual who lived in Tulsa in the 1950s.  He worked for Looboyle at some point between 1951 and 1955.  His name was Charles Abrer, although I'm not sure of the spelling.  He must be in his 80s now.  Can you or any of your readers provide me with any information?  Ideally, I'd like to get some old records from Looboyle to see if his name or a similarly spelled name is on the payroll.

Charle O. Frye and Vandella M. A. Burke were married on 15 May 1878 in Sebastian County, Arkansas, and settled in Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri before finally settling in Tulsa County, Oklahoma. Vandella M. A. Burke Frye was a daughter of Elihue Preston Perry Burke (6 April 1836-29 September 1896) and his wife, Miriam/Myriam J. Penninger Burke (born ca. 1841). Records indicate that Charles O. Frye died in Tulsa, Oklahoma during the 1920's. I think that he and his family were buried in Tulsa County, Oklahoma. The children of Charles O. and Vandella M. A. Burke Frye were: Oscar B. Frye (born ca. 1883 in Missouri); Howard Frye (born ca. 1886 in Missouri); and Roy Frye (born ca. 1888 in Missouri).

Also found there in 1870. His parents burials are listed on Find A Grave in Bald Knob cemetery in Boone county and brother
Lester M. in Western Grove cemetery in Newton county. 
Hope this helps,  Judy

Daniel Newton McCLURG died November 1977 at Tulsa.
I looked at the Rose Hill Cemetery listing, and they do have a Daniel N. McCLUNG listed with the burial of 11/30/1977. It may be a transcribing error.
I need to know more about who is listed in his obituary.

Surname:  BRUNER
Submitted  by Thomas Patton on 14Jan2009
I recently purchased a home on West Brady St in Tulsa.  I am told that William Bruner was the owner of the land many years ago and after doing research, I would have to say that this is true.  I was also told that he may have lived in a small house that is also located on my property.  The house seems to be pretty old and I am actually in the process of updating it.  I am trying to find out if this was actually his home at one time?  Do you possible know of where I can find information on where he resided?

I have an old picture of a group of employees at car dealership somewhere in OK but I am having a difficult time trying to find out where.?The photo is priceless, four feet long with at least 40 people from mechanics to secretaries. On the front window is “Ryan Motors” Main St. This picture was probably taken in the 20’s or 30’s. I have not been able to pull anything up on the web. My Dad’s Uncle sold cars here and he thought it was in McAlester but on a sign in the picture was “Alva Rooms”  I contacted someone from Alva who said the picture was not taken there.  The photographer was from Tulsa. Signed on the left side of the photo.  Could you help me out here. Thanks,

William E. Smith, last residence Tulsa, date of death 20 April 1988 

Would like to find out enough information about the deceased to
determine whether he is William Earnest Smith, son of William and Amelia, brother of Celina (Sally), Francis (Frank), Alvina (Vinie), James, and others.  I do know the birth date matches, but another William E. with that birth date died in CA in 2003 (trying to find that obit also).

Surname:  NEW
Submitted by:  Millard New on 16Sep2008

I've been trying to locate a daughter of a great-uncle. Her name was Phyllis New and she was born about 1925, probably in or near Oklahoma City. Her mother and father, William Harrison New and Ruth Bess Munson-New, both died in and are buried in Denver, CO (1965 & 1976, respectively). The cemetery record for mother Ruth states that her next of kin is Phyllis New and she, too, lived in Denver in 1976. However, there is no cemetery record that Phyllis is buried in this cemetery nor does she show up in an on-line telephone search. I assume from the cemetery record that daughter Ruth never married. Subsequently, I found a Social Security Death Index for a Phyllis R New who was born on 14 Sep 1924 and died 5 Jul 1996 with last residence given as Tulsa. I'm thinking that this might be the Phyllis for whom I've been searching. If possible, could someone search the obits near 5 Jul 1996 for her obit? I'd very much appreciate it.

David P. Anderson family

I am looking for David Presley Anderson's family. David was born 26 Dec 1844 in Quincy, Adams Co., Illinois. He married Sarah Matilda Higgins who was born 19 May 1863 in Tennessee. They were married sometime between 1879 & 1880 as I have found them in Ursa, Adams Co., Illinois. Their first child was born in Illinois and the other four in Oklahoma. They live in Guthrie for sometime and moved to Tulsa in the 1920's. They are both buried in Tulsa in Rose Hill Cemetery and they both died in 1936. They also have two sons that are buried with them. Clarence Ray Anderson and Jess Fred Anderson. Clarence married Bertha Baumer and according to 1930 census had two daughters. They may have had more I do not know. I am looking for anyone that is connected to this family.
