Notes from Freda Willingham:
December 07,2000

Went to the Grace Keith Genealogical
Library in Fayetteville Arkansas. I
found the 1900 Day County, Oklahoma
Census Records. It was taken May 1900,
Has Duncan W. Brinkley as Head of House,
White Male born Jan. 1871 age 29
married for 10 years, birthplace is
Texas, *Father's birthplace is
Mississippi, Mother's birthplace is
Arkansas, can't read his
occupation but it looks like Sloet
or Sloek Herdu or Herder months
employed is 0, yes on can read,
write and speak English.

I also found the 1910 La Center,
Clarke County, Washington Census
Records that has Duncan W. Brinkley
Head of House, White Male age 39
married for 20 years born in Texas,
* Father's birthplace is Louisiana,
Mother's birthplace is Arkansas,
occupation Saio Mill, number of
months employed is 0.
* There is a difference on the
Father's birthplace. Father's
birthplace on Death Certificate
also has Mississippi. But Millie
has a Bible Record that list
Duncan's father born in Louisiana.
We have also found James born in
Louisiana in Census Records.
Notes From Freda Willingham:
The Family history that has been
passed down is that Duncan W.
Brinkley died in a logging accident
in the state of Washington. I have
a Death Certificate that has
the Doctor first saw him on
August 22, 1910 to August 29,
1910 and that he was last seen
alive by the Doctor on August 29,
1910. He died from Bulbar Paralysis.
The undertaker was J.P. Finley & Co.,
I have been in contact with the Funeral
Home but they told me that their
records had been destroyed by fire
for that time period. The information
given on the Death Certificate was
given by Sallis Brinkley (this was
Duncan's wife). Address given was
Lancenter, Washington.
The Doctor that registered the
Certificate was R. G. Back, MD.
I have been told that Duncan was
a member of the Masons and that
they helped in bring him back
to Oklahoma for burial.
