They were the parents of 7 children, one died very young. The 6 surviving children, Burl, Burt, Clyde, Swayne, Madge, & Cecil are pictured at left with their parents on a farm in Texas. The family moved to Oklahoma shortly after the state was opened up. Lafyette may have made the run into Oklahoma in April of 1889.
