Sharon, I received edits from you for Michael Andrew Yankey and wife Maria Magdalene Hottinger Yankey; however these edits would be incorrect. Most of the specific dates mentioned are guesswork, unknown to anyone and thus not shown except a reference to the. In my bibliographies. Both of these memorials are already previously done by me, and the ones you show are duplicates with incorrect information. Please view the following two memorials. Thank you, Nancy Yankie

Newspaper archives
The archives are on microfilm or fiche. The librarian looked it up for me. I could forward it to you if you want it. Yes, Harber's family.

RE: Mauda Stroud Spurr Harber
Sharon, Pottawatomie County located a marriage record for Maude S. Spurr to W. E. Harber, 1 Feb 1936. Combined with her tombstone photo, that should be enough information for the DAR apps I'm working on. No one on Ancestry has the correct marriage date, so wanted to share that with you.

Again, thanks for your help.

RE: Mauda Stroud Spurr Harber
Thank you, Sharon. Just thought I'd ask. I have been searching online, but can't find Shawnee News-Star obits on any of the online databases. I plan to get in touch with sources in Shawnee and Seminole, haven't had a chance yet. I used to live in Shawnee, in fact my husband worked for American National Bank with Harber Lampl in the 1970s.

Mauda Harber
Sharon, I am searching for an obituary for Maude/Mauda Stroud Spurr Harber that will name her children or help connect her to first husband. I am working on DAR papers for some of the descendents of her daughter, Dorothy Spurr Lampl Mayne.

Need to prove that Maude Spurr is same person as Mauda Harber.

Thank you
I have forward the information to my dad, Ray Cummins in Yukon. So far, I have found no trace of Indian descent on the Tarver side. I am looking into Beatrice's first husband, Fred Mann. God bless these souls. I miss them everyday.

RE: C P Tarver
So my great granny was Beatrice T. Tarver. Her father was Alfred Bud Tarver and mother was Mary E. Douglas Tarver. So is C.P. Tarver Alfred's mother? Then C.P. connected me to a John W. Davis and Elizabeth Bishop Davis. My dad, Raymond Glene Cummins is the grandson of Beatrice T. Tarver whom later married a Mann but he was killed in an elevator accident. My great grandmother then married Raymond Boyd Seay. My great grandmother was born in Texas and later moved to Oklahoma with her parents. This is all new to me so connecting everything is difficult.
