Whitworth's are in our family line, my mother in law was a Whitworth. As for the transfer, I will think on transferring, since I have said in my bio that I will not transfer any that is in our family.

Bertha Goggans
I have been wondering what happened with Bertha and the baby Ruby Lee. The baby died and them the next year or so, Bertha died. Do you know what happened? Do you know where the baby is buried. I would guess maybe the same place as Bertha maybe.
I'm full of questions! We need to ask them tho while there are still those old enough to remember!
You are welcome to email me

RE: Bertha Long Goggans
Gerald they are listed at Find-a-grave as "Goggins" The information below will tell you where to find them. Thank you for the information.

I also sent this informatin to the person that posted them:
The correct spelling is GOGGANS.
He was born to Newton R. and Martha Elvira Israel Goggans. Was first married to Bertha Melissa Long in about 1919 and had 3 children. Bertha is buried at the Molsbe Cemetery, Nocona, Texas. After she died, He then married to Edith Marie Roberts on Dec 7, 1937 and had 4 children.

William Thomas Goggans served in a hospital in Nance, France. He was aboard a train going to the front lines and they stopped the train and backed it up and took some of the troope off to work in the hospital. He was one of those lucky ones. This is the way he told the story as I remember.

RE: Bertha Long Goggans
I thought I recognized your name. If you would like, I can transfer Bertha to you, and you can add whatever you would like. Almost all my Goggans info came from Duane, or researching on my own. William was a brother to my Mary Ethel Goggans White.
Thank you for your help with the corrections!

Bertha Long Goggans
Gerald, I made the corrections, and added a note about her son. I don't know where Bertha's husband, William Thomas Goggans is buried. I show he died at Durant, OK. but don't know what cemetery. Do you?
Thank you!

I made the changes.

About the names I put on findagrave for Chishoktak Cemetery, I went by Vol 3 of the Bryan County Cemetery Books published by the Bryan County Heritage Assn in 1987 plus other records.

They walked the cemetery and added four names from Mhoon & Holmes Funeral Home records. Sometimes they also add names given to them by people who have relatives or friends in a cemetery. They must be unmarked graves.

The book says the newer section is at the southern edge of the church grounds. The old section is 2/10th's of a mile south and on the opposite side of the road. Its set back on a wooded hill and in 1987 was burned off with charred remains of Indian homes. It is unkempt with many markers of sand stone and metal markers that cannot be read anymore.
