Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 1946, Chandler OK; US Army, Vietnam, 1968-69; Ph.D. University of Kansas, 1976; current residence: Tokyo, Japan.

Author of two books of family history: "North of Deep Fork: An Oklahoma Farm Family in Hard Times," which deals with Lincoln County; and "The Fate of Bones: Adventures in Family History," which follows the Pound/Pounds family from Virginia in the mid-1600s to Oklahoma at the start of WWII. Available from Amazon.

Recently I have written about early-day killings in Lincoln Co. Oklahoma. I have a group of seven stories courting a publisher.

I run a Lincoln County Oklahoma website at The Table of Contents for the new book is posted there. And I've just started a new website for McCorkle Cemetery in Lincoln Co. because the FAG contributor who controls most of the sites there suffers from terminal inertia: Right now, I am working on a book about the vanished village of Clematis, south of Davenport in Lincoln Co. It's not by chance that its rise and fall coincides with that of the Oklahoma Socialist Party.

RE: Williams Prairie Baptist Church Cem.
The Williams Prairie Baptist Church is located in Lake Creek Precinct, Williamson County, Illinois. The Joseph Terry Williams that you are referring would not be buried within this cemetery since the first person to be buried there in an unmarked grave was Monroe Kelly in 1874. The Church was not organized until 1861, of which there were 28 charter members. One of those charter members was Amanda (Hays)Williams whom was the wife of Terry Williams whom was the son of Joseph T. Williams (1808-1877) and Deborah Williams whom are both buried at Hurricane Cemetery within Williamson County, Illinois and in proximity more so to Jackson County where your findagrave memorial for JTW that you have created apparently died. In 1816, Jackson County was established; in 1818 Franklin County was established; and, in 1839 Williamson County was established by a near identical size from the original area that encompassed Franklin County. The Township for Lake Creek is TW8-11, I believe..all easily researched via the world wide web.. The original Elder or Pastor of the Williams Prairie Church was Rev. Joseph Thomas Williams (1819-1884). He is buried about 3 miles north of the Williams Prairie Church, but in Franklin County, Illinois, at the East Fork Baptist Church (Former Pleasant Grove) which was founded in 1840. Hope this helps.

RE: Ellenore Orr Adair in Guernsey Co.
Wayne - I know of the Robert Orr and Elizabeth Merchant name in Guernsey Co., OH. I may have worked on this family at one time.

Did you ever connect it to the other Orr families of the area - there were several in the Guernsey, Muskingum and Coshocton Co., OH area.

If you like, I can send you a written compilation on some of them.

RE: Ellenore Orr Adair in Guernsey Co.
Wayne - I don't think so but I have done considerable work on the family - which by the way is interesting. They settled in Guernsey Co., OH while my people settled in Muckingum and Coshocton Co., OH. DNA tests indicate that while we likely are related - we are not related very close. Most Orrs are descended from Vikings and were from Scotland prior to going to northern Ireland.
