Has more been found on where Alfonso Green Cook was buried?

I noticed you were transferred the memorial from the original creator. Normally they only do that for family member. Are you family of John P. I am the daughter of Lewis Johnson. Two of John P's sons married Lewis's sisters (Boyd & Mildred and Stanley & Pauline). I would like to share info if you are family. My e-mail is email@example.com if you prefer not to post this answer.

Thanks for your interest in honoring those who served by maintaining the Civil War monument. That is a labor of love.
I currently do not have any information on Aaron Swagger w/r/t to serving in the Civil War (either Union or Confederacy). If I find something out I will let you know.
|Tim Bear||RE: please remove photo|
The photo has been removed.
And are you aware that you can pay , $5.00 to sponsor the memorial and then you can add a lot more pictures (20) if you want to.

Scott: Oops, two typos escaped me in my msg of a few minutes ago. Of course, Capt Miller was b 1816 and died 1888. Then, Rella Looney was "long-time" employee of Okla. Hist. Soc. library. (I need to slow down and edit more carefully!) Sorry.... I particularly hate typos, and most especially, my own! Gloria Reck, Eureka, CA #47206933.
|Gloria Reck||RE: Captain Miller, Leon, OK|
Scott: I think I answered your questions regarding Isaac Newton "Capt John" Miller (1816-1999) and the Ike Cloud/Dibrell Ranch, but I'm not sure. Did I mention to you the "Indian Pioneer History," which is a many volumes set housed at the Okla. Historical Society library in Okla City? A WPA project done in the 1930s, many "old-timers" were interviewed and their interviews and recollections were eventually typed up and bound into at least 53 volumes. (I cannot recall how many, but my notes show a reference to a volume 53, so there were at least that many...) Then Mrs. Rella Looney, a long-gime employee at the library, took up the task of indexing the volumes. It took her many years to finish the huge task. When you think about taking on such a task without sophisticated computer programs, it boggles the mind. But anyway, my point is that the "Indian Pioneer History" has indeed been indexed. You could probably entice a library employee to check the index for Ike Cloud and Dibrell brothers. I found quite a few references for Capt. John Miller, but of course I was not pursuing Cloud or Dibrell data, so I did not check the indices for these names. I particularly recall several remembrances by Peter Arthur, who was both mayor and postmaster of Leon at different times; he had an exceptional memory and knew almost everyone who had ever lived -- or even been to -- Leon, OK. Seems likely Arthur would have commented about the Dibrell brothers, if not about Ike Cloud himself. My memory tells me that Arthur moved to Leon area in 1875, but I'm not certain about that year. I think Arthur was well over 90 when he died. I think my cousin Harrell McCullough and I interviewed him ourselves, (was probably July 1962) but I was very young and certainly a novice, so didn't keep adequate notes. (In July 1962 I had just graduated from high school, used my savings to finance a trip from CA to Okla to find my roots, met cousin Harrell, and began my quest for those roots -- a quest which has been active and constant ever since. SO, if you haven't checked the "Indian Pioneer History" yet, I'd certainly put it at the top of my list. I'm sure Rella Looney has been sorely, insufficiently celebrated by Oklahoma researchers.

I don't know if the Dibrells in Erin Spring Cemetery are related to the Bill, Joe, and Jim Dibrell that had the Dibrell Ranch near Leon in Love Co., OK. My research goes back to Sophie Dibrell who married John McCaughey. She was a native of Mississippi and belonged to the Choctaw Indian Nation.
Her parents were Charles and Alzira (Mitchell) Dibrell. The latter was a daughter of Mollie Fulsom, and a sister of Israel Fulsom, who was Chief of the Choctaw Nation. They came to the Territory about 1856 and his death occurred in 1860, while she passed away in 1866. They had four children, Joseph A. Dibrell d. 1888, buried at Erin Springs; James F. Dibrell and wife Hattie d. and br. in Albuquerque (smallpox); William A. Dibrell and wife buried at Erin Springs; and Sophie. I don't know of any children of the brothers.

I apologize for taking so long. I really have no info on this person. I just leave flowers. I do wish you good luck on your search. Best ever, Sarah.

I was given this information, do not know if there is a marker. This is/was a county cemetery
|Joandra Carreno||RE: Dr. Wm Burgess|
Hi, I am barely trying to put together my family tree. I don't know if Dr. Burgess is related or not. I went through Find A Grave and found the name *Burgess* and posted flowers. I really wish I could help you.
