choctaw nation
I am the Bryan and Bryant line, Marvin Washington Bryan married Rosa Harris, grandchild of Chief Greenwood Leflore. The Leflore line also
connected to me on
My land now MS Choctaw Nation, no paper so they pretend they don't know me.
My aunt married Alton Ray Gardner, I always wonder if he was of the Nation, also.
My ancestor's land was right next to Bryan Oil Field, the Major Ulmer Road is me,
as my Choctaw ancestor's great grandchild, Rosie Bryant married Major Ulmer.
My mother took me to visit at the Nation in 1960 since we lived in Louisiana at the time.
It's a sad world to be ignored, especially since I found out my cousin's husband works with the husband of MS Choctaw Chief Phyllis Anderson, no honor.. Mary Crawford Baum, relative of Genl Edumnd Bryan who fought with Pushmataha;
also, we married the Lincecum's

Linda Morgan Clark
Samuel Sixkiller's burial place
I am the historian for the First United Methodist Church of Muskogee, OK. This church is the successor to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South that was established in 1878 in Muskogee. That church building burned in 1903 and the property was sold to a couple of individuals - one who later became a Chief of the Muscogee/Creek Nation. There are, of, course no records from that church - only the church that replaced it in another location in 1904. No local historian has ever heard of a cemetery located on either the church or adjoining school property (Harrell Institute). No maps made of those properties show it either.

Can you furnish me with more information about where you got your information about the burial place of Samuel Sixkiller? If this is indeed a part of our church's history I would very much like to know all about it and have that information placed in our church archives.

Thank you, Rev. Linda Morgan Clark

Elmer Rogers, Fort Towson Cemetery
The accompanying article doesn't tell the whole story for this family. W.D. Lyons (a young black man) was convicted of this family's murder and spent 25 years in prison before being pardoned. Thurgood Marshall defended him at his 1941 appeals trial in Hugo, OK.

RE: Dewey Spencer #94699636
Yes, Robert Spencer was her 2nd husband. Sorry it took me a while to reply. It looks like the updated information is correct. Her father was William Wylie but I have not been able to verify the spelling of his name or his family... none of our remaining family members can remember. Her daughter was Lois Ann Crabtree, my grandmother.(Lois' 1st husband was Melvin Gallemore & her 2nd husband was Her.bert Jolley) The other 2 daughters are buried under their married names, Alice Brown (Central Cemetery in Rigby, Idaho) and Dorothy Wamsley (I will have to look up the cemetery name for Aunt Dorothy)
Maybe we can link those to her as well.
Thanks again so very much!

Could you provide a source for the requested change to his date of death? I am inclined to think that he died on the 9th and was buried on the 12th.

Hello Kathy:

Thank you so very much for that important obituary, it is a line that I have been trying to work on. I live in Jonesboro, AR. area and we make trip to Porum, OK. every month but do not find time for library in Stigler very often.
My wife's late husband was connected to this Robertson family through a previous wife.

Thanks again for your help.

I could have made a mistake on the death date, since my photo left out the last 2 numbers of his year.

RE: Phillip Goats
Thanks for such a quick reply! I do have an ancestry account, but have not built my tree completely out in that line. Most of the information I have is a combination of ancestry hint and info from family search. I would love to see screen shots of anything you have found. I was only aware of three marriages (one of which I think is questionable). My email is michhowell at gmail dot com.

Angieline Sarah Grisham's father?
I am trying to establish the correct father for Sarah "Angie" Goates Grisham.
The Find-a-Grave website lists her father as Philip Goats, but the attached image of her death certificate lists her father as Jack Goats. Do you have any further information on this?

Just saw your page for William Leach... that adds a generation to that leg of my genealogy! Martha Leach was my 4th-great grandmother!

Would love to correspond and share notes sometime.

Marion Carpenter
Thank you for Memorial# 65847720
Find A Grave Memorial# 65847720 is for Floyd Kelcey Irwin (1908-1976), my grandfather. My mother's name is Maye Elouise (Irwin) Carpenter (1942- ) and is still living. She has two other living siblings, Theodora "Teddi" Irwin and Samuel "Sam" Irwin. Kristina (Irwin) Adams was their sister. Bertha Lee (Atkinson) Irwin was their mother.

I am Marion Franklin Carpenter, Jr. (1976- ) and I have a sister, Elizabeth Anne (Rice) Valastro (1962- ). My father, Marion Frankling Carpenter, Sr. (1941- ) is still living also. I've just begun looking into my family history and your pages have been very helpful.

Thank you, so much for keeping these records safe for those of us who are just starting out. I hope I've helped you also.

I found an article of your grandfather and posted it to his memorial, it has some interesting information about him, he seemed like a fantastic man!

RE: William Reeves
You welcome. I hate it when there is not a monument either. But sometimes family could not afford one. I know that to be a fact. They could barely scrape the money up to bury them. But at least with a print out of the lot and the other stones I was able to pin point the exact locale for you.

Thanks for her obit. Please review to make sure it is correct. I liked the way you have added information to other memorials. Are you related to this family?
