RE: Bethel Creek Cemetery
Hi there! I apologize for just now responding to your post. I see you have already added your ancestors to that cemetery. Sadly, I don't have any other information for you. I have only been there once, to fulfill some photo requests. I had to find it on a map, myself. :)

Thanks for asking, though! And have a wonderful weekend. :)

RE: Joseph Dehn
Doug, I really appreciate your efforts in looking for my grandfather Joe Dehn. The 1930 census and 1940 census, unfortunately do not have enough information to help me locate him in Oklahoma.
Ruby Roosevelt Adams-my grandmother was single in 1930 but was married to Joe Dehn in possibly 1933 or 1934 and according to my mom Joe Dehn lived in and they were married in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma.
By the year 1936, Joe had left Ruby his wife and his daughter Barbara J. Dehn. There is rumor that he went to Chicago. My mom mentioned that her mom Ruby went to Chicago to look for Joe but she could not find him so they came back to Brushy Township and stayed with her parents. That is were you can find Ruby and Barbara in the 1940 census but not Joe living with them.
He is such a mystery...we do not have the names of any of his parents or siblings if any, his birth date, his death date nor the location of where he died or burial.
My mom says that Joe Dehn's dad had came to Illinois when Joe had came back in 1934-1935 after Ruby and Joe were married.
My only hope is to obtain a copy of their marriage certificate or some other census (1920 census)showing Joe Dehn in it living with his family.
There are times I think about giving up on finding my grandfather Joe Dehn but then I get a new burst of hope and start looking again. Who knows, maybe some day before I pass on, I may find out were he is in this world we live in.

RE: Hunt Stones
Doug, you are welcome. I actually had gone to the Bethel Creek Cemetery last month and took photos of all of the grave stones that I could find in the cemetery. Unfortunately, there are several stones that are unreadable although many of them do have data. Erosion from wind, acid rain-from coal mining in the area-and black mold on the stones makes them very difficult to read. I will try to get back to the cemetery some time this week to see if I can find Perry, Abel and the other Noah Hunt you have requested.

I do need some help with a family member that came to Illinois from out west but I am not sure exactly where from.
My mom says that her dad (Joe Dehn) was from Oklahoma but I have tried to find "Dehn" family members in Oklahoma without success, however, I did find some from Dallas, Texas.
I know you do not live in Dallas, Texas but if you come across any Dehn family members please let me know.
Joe/Joseph Dehn, was Born around 1890-1900 era, came to Brushy Township, Illinois in the 1930's married Ruby Roosevelt Adams who was born in 1900 they had one child, a daughter, Bobbi Jo Dehn who is living in Illinois. Ruby Adams Dehn, Joe's wife died February 24,1947 in Illinois. He may have died in Illinois as well but not sure where or when.
I would love to find out where Joe Dehn was born, who his parents were and if he had any sisters or brothers. If you could find his grandparents that would be awesome as well.
