Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family history and have enjoyed posting information and photos of family members' graves. I am always updating family geneology and get excited when I find another family line who has more information we can exchange.

RE: Mary Eveline Blake Rector
Hi. My Mom was a cousin to Gerald Rector Gray and Warren Edward Gray, who were the children of James Edward Gray (Mom's uncle} and Maude (Rector) Gray, so Maude would be my Great Grand Aunt. We visited Iowa almost every summer from our home in Ohio when I was growing up to visit our Iowa cousins, so I am very familiar with the Grinnell - Tama - Nevada area (and cemeteries like Haven and Hazelwood). Actually, I am in the area tonight as I write this because I work the IndyCar race circuit and we are here for this weekend's race in Newton. Thanks for the additional Rector information. We have a large family tree on Ancestry.com......

Florence Coogle Hoult
I linked Florence to her father John and then transferred her memorial over to you ~ her daughter Mary Ida "Mollie" was married to my 2nd cousin so that's my only connection to her. Charlene

RE: Coogle Transfers
I've transferred the memorials for John, Arah, Isaac & Benjamin Coogle to your care as requested ~ I'm not related so am happy to see family members be in charge of their own relatives. Charlene

RE: Fernando Straughn
My father was Dale C. Straughn, first cousin of Lowell. Dad was the oldest son of Hugh. I grew up in Chattanooga, TN. I now live in Murfreesboro, near Nashville, TN. I received much of my initial information from great Uncle Howard. I know Keith, Harold and Janet and keep in touch with them on Facebook. I would be pleased to share any information with you that I have. I'm afraid it may be a duplicate of what you already have.

I am a great grandson of Fernando "Doley" Straughn and my grandfather was Hugh D. Wondering how we are related. It has been some time since I have dabbled in the Straughn line. I was quite surprised to see the photos of my ancesters.

RE: Cimmaron Family Legends book
The Cimarron Family Legends consists of two volumes. These were put together by Payne County people who had families that lived near or around the Cimarron River. This river travels through several counties.

These books contain recollections and facts and photographs that people have shared about their families. Most of the people who contributed to the book are now deceased themselves, so they are a great set of books to collect.

I believe that the first volume was put together in 1978/79. The second volume in 1980. It was published by Evans Publishing in Perkins, Oklahoma. I believe that the pair can be purchased at Amazon.com or other places online.

The books are really great, but, because there are many "memories" that are shared, not all the facts are accurate and not complete. There is also no table of contents or alphabetical "sorting" of names, so a person has to literally go through page by page to see if their family(s) contributed anything to the book.

Have a great day,
Pam

RE: Cimmaron Family Legends book
The book was compiled and published back in the late 70's and early 1980. It has stories and photos that many local families have put together about their heritage and family. I think you can order both books online for something like $60. Perhaps on Amazon.com.
