Mike, please think outside "THE BOX", your great-great grandfather is Jacob RATH, Sr. he immigrated from Germany with his wife Anna Marie Mehne Rath, with their young son Jacob. Before they settled in Nebraska, they were in Downers Grove, Illinois. Then they traveled to Nebraska, where my great grandfather then moved to Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma. Jacob, jr. with his family made the Cherokee Strip opening and settled on farm land in Medford, Oklahoma. You have family, probably much to your dislike in Oklahoma and lots of cousins.
Jacob and Marie had eleven sons:
Jacob, William, John R., August, Henry C., Herman, Samuel, Earnest R., Albert, Edward (father of Floyd Oren Rath, your grandfather), Fred.
Do some lookup on the findagrave site

RATH family
Mike, would you happen to have any photos of your great grandfather or your grandfather. I'm doing ancestry and looking for pictures. My great-great grandfather was Jacob Rath, Sr. my great grandfather was Jacob "Jake" Rath, who was the oldest of 11 sons. He is buried in Braman, Oklahoma. My dad's father was Ervin Charles Rath, he is buried in Blackwell, Oklahoma. My father Cecil Ernest Roth (RATH), is buried in Ponca City, Oklahoma. My father changed the spelling of our last name when he was a youngster in grade school. Thank you, #47588194 jo sheats
