|Kyra Carter||Do you know a Dennis Davis?|
I am getting a DNA match to him and I find myself here eventually. Here is a message from the administrator of that account: My paternal grandfather is Dennis Davis - 1911 - 1971. His wife is Georgia Ann Cowan 1917 - 1965. Dennis Davis father is James Knox Polk Davis 1852-1961. His wife is Sally Ann McGee 1995 - 1926.

Could this be the same man?
|Kay Glenn||Gertrude Maude Wilson Marsh|
Gertrude Wilson Marsh, my grandmother, was an avid golfer and won a championship medal in 1929 which I have. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church, President of the Delphian Chapter (a library club), Order of the Eastern Star, As You Like It Study Club, and Red Cross. Gertrude was born on 14 November, 1877. Her mother, Eliza Ann Marsh (no relation to her husband's family) died in 1879 when Gertrude was just a baby. Her father remarried and the family came to Kansas on a train and settled in Cedarvale where he worked in a mercantile store. She married Orris McCartney Marsh on 4 August, 1897 in Sedan, Chautauqua County, Kansas. I remember her as a lovely, refined lady who always took care of her family's needs. When she died on 6 July, 1964, she was living in Louisiana under the care of my father, Victor Burton Marsh. She is buried next to her husband in the Sayre-Doxey Cemetery near Sayre.
The Cedar Vale Commercial - Aug. 6, 1897 MARRIED - At Sedan on Wednesday, Aug. 4, Probate Judge Brewster officiating. Miss Gertie Wilson to Mr. Orris Marsh. They returned Wednesday night to the home of N. G. Marsh where the Chivalric honors were bestowed upon them by a crowd of the youngsters from town. They will make their home for the present at N. G. Marsh’s place.
Gertrude and O. M. lived at 401 North 3rd Street and I remember the big swing on the front porch, the lilac bush next to the porch, the violets near the back door, Grandmother's mashed potatoes, the hiding place in the stairwell going upstairs, the toy box she kept upstairs, and the general floor plan of the home. The garage was separate behind the house.
Scroggins Funeral Home handled Gertrude’s burial.
She is buried in the Sayre-Doxey Cemetery which is located east of Sayre. Take I-40 east and exit at Cemetery Road. Turn right heading South for about 1.5 miles. The Cemetery will be on the right. After passing the sign indicating Sayre-Doxey Cemetery, take the first road in just to the South of the sign. Go 2/3 to 3/4 of the way heading West. The Marsh plot is located just West of the big Devanney stone. There are no trees near. I think it is located in Block A. Kathryn Marsh Glenn
|Kay Glenn||Victor Burton Marsh|
Daddy was born and raised in Sayre, Oklahoma. In his teenage years, he enjoyed debating and playing football, and was very proficient in both activities. Those activities carried over into college and yearbook writings show that he was popular and successful, but that he was a “woman hater” according to his friends. He attended Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma and the University of Oklahoma. He lettered in baseball, football, wrestling, and track. He majored in Petroleum Engineering and graduated 3 June, 1930. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, he played pro football for the New York Giants for one year in 1933 as a guard before injuries forced him to retire. He worked at various jobs during the Great Depression and started to work for Stanolind Oil Company. He was transferred from one place to another wherever he was needed and that continued for the rest of his life. He met my mother when she was probably directing a touring play that had traveled to Sayre when he was visiting his parents there. They were married and began raising a family. We moved to many homes in Kansas before I was 9, finally settling in Ulysses, Kansas in 1946. Shortly after that Mother died and Daddy married Georgia Hargrove Wampler, a registered nurse that he had known in Sayre. They were married a month and a half after Mother died, probably because Daddy was unable to raise a family on his own and lacked some parenting skills. After leaving Kansas and moving to Oklahoma City in 1947, we continued to move several more times, finally ending up with our own home in Duncan, Oklahoma in 1955 after having lived in “Camp Homes” for many years. Because he was an honest and hardworking man, he was promoted on a regular basis in the company that he worked for. He allowed my sister, Margaret, and me 2 years of college. I presume that was because he thought women didn’t need any more schooling than that. His father, O. M. Marsh, had not allowed his daughter, Lucille, to an advanced education either. In 1956 the family moved to Monroe, Louisiana because Daddy was moving higher up in the company and eventually became district supervisor over a tri-state area, which included parts of Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana. Later he was elevated to a higher position in the company, but his career was cut short on 20 Jan., 1968 when he died at the age of 61 of heart failure. He was over weight and smoked which attributed to his declining health. His handwritten Will is dated 18 February, 1967, less than an year before he died. He is buried in the Sayre-Doxey Cemetery near Sayre. He enjoyed playing golf, but that activity didn't really give him enough exercise. He also belonged to the Masons for four years, which was probably a rare social activity for him, and he enjoyed going to football games in the Fall.
His address in Duncan, Oklahoma was 1535 North 13th.
The 1940 Census shows that he completed 4 years of college. Kathryn Marsh Glenn

Thanks for the info!
|aunicornlady3||13792561 and 13792570|
please transfer these memorials of Lloid I. Tyson and Geraldine Tyson. These are my parents.
|Jerry W. Ferguson||RE: Greenberry Gibbs|
I will let you know if a grave is located. I really think he is buried in Sims area but might not have a marker. I've searched every Gibbs in Montgomery, Yell and Arkansas County. It's difficult to believe he doesn't have a marker since he did have a pension plus the post office job. Thanks for staying in touch.

Nancy Jane Barnett Ray's son, Lee Roy Ray is my grandfather. I'm amazed at his photo. I have one other photo of her (and Matthew).
|Jerry W. Ferguson||Greenberry Gibbs|
I wondered if you had any info on Greenberry Gibbs (1922-?) We are searching for info on where he was buried. We know he was married three times: Eda Chanbers abt 1846, Sarah Ann Jones in 1865 and Arvie Cagle in 1896. We cannot find any info on where Greenberry nor Sarah Ann Jones Gibbs were buried. Any help would be appreciated.
|carolyn murphy||thank you|
