Melissa Gertrude "Girty" Campbell Cates
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 11, 1868
Mississippi, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1949
Grady County
Oklahoma, USA

Married December 22, 1886 in Ellis County, Texas.

I have photos of Girty and Johnson's home in my hometown of Chickasha, Oklahoma. I once asked my aunt Evelyn (who was in her 80s when I asked) what they (her grandparents) were like and she answered, "Just old people...sitting around."

These are my mother's grandparents and they're buried in the same cemetery (and close to) my grandparents from my father's side of the family.

In addition to the children linked below Johnson and Girty also had:
Frank Weaver Cates (found him January 29, 2012 in Maricopa County, Arizona)
Bessie Cates


Sister of
Thomas Franklin Campbell (1856-1920)
Nancy J. Campbell (1858-?)
Missouri (Zue) Campbell (1860-1937)
Virginia (Jeanie) Campbell
Parthena Campbell (1871-1951
