|bhurley||Mary Jane "Mollie" Cooper|
Mary Jane "Mollie" Cooper is my great great grandmother, she is the daughter of John Wilson Cooper and Mary A Westfall. When Mary Cooper married my great great grandfather in McDonald County Missouri on February 8, 1891 they were both from the Cyclone area. There was a Centennial Census done in 1876 that shows her at 3 years of age with her parents listed above.

|Cathy Eckenrode||Reah Hengst|
How is Rhea Hengst (1882-1967) connected to William Clinton Hengst (1867--1959)? Is she William's daughter?

|Karen Winters||Frank Sterling #68975842|
Hi there! I have noticed that you created a memorial for Frank Sterling #68975842 in 2011, Plot S-5, Mt Harmony Cemetery. This is a duplicate memorial of William Frances "Frank" Sterling #59646408 that was created in 2010, same Plot S-5 at Mt Harmony. Could you please delete your memorial so that we do not have duplicate memorial since it was created after the original? I so much appreciate this! Thanks again, Karen Stallings Winters
|Liz Freeman||RE: Canadian County Records|
I had another thought regarding the Canadian County records. You indicate that there was a fire in the 1950s that destroyed the sheriff's records. You didn't say if it was the sheriffs office that burned or the county offices that burned.
The sheriffs office is a county office. Even if they were housed outside the courthouse, the county would have a pay record since all county departments are paid through county funds. If the county records remained in tact, they should have pay records for his service.
Again, good luck in your search.
|Liz Freeman||RE:Deputy-Canadian Co.1930-1935|
Thank you for leaving my memorial.
You probably have already done all this with regard to your research on the deputy in Canadian County - you are correct, a lot of records were lost in fires. But I would check out the newspapers of the time for Canadian County (these are on file at the historical society in Oklahoma City).
Then check with the statewide Sheriff's Association - I don't know if they have records on deputies or not nor for that timeframe. It's worth a try.
Then check with the town library in El Reno. Most libraries have a genealogy section where they often save old items; ask them if there is a genealogy society/library other than the town library - often there is.
It takes a lot of reading, but what I found was that the appointment of deputies and big 'law enforcement busts' during that time frame often got in the newspapers and names were given - sometimes even photos. If your father is deceased, was there an obituary that might have mentioned it? When did he get married and where. If it was during that time frame maybe there was an announcement in the newspaper and it may have mentioned where he worked.
Last, if you use the historical society in OKC to read the old newspapers, while there check out the Canadian County books they have-one never know what is found on their book shelves.
Good luck in you search!
|Sheila Wood||Lawrence Edward Booker|
Buried in the Newburg Cemetery, Phelps Co. Mo.
Lawrence was married first to someone and I am working on finding that name. The last person he was married to was Nellie Jane Kelley Booker. They were married 7 Dec 1984. Nellie is also buried in the Newburg Cemetery as a Booker, NOT on Lawrence's stone. Maybe close, I don't know. So Lawrence had three marriages. His second's wife Grace Eva Creech Falkenrath is buried in the Roach Cemetery. Lawrence and Grace had a LOT of children together. Sheila
|Paula Thomley||Robbie Berry Trone|
This is my great grandmother. If you have ANY info on her that would be great. Or could you put me in touch with someone who does? Her son, Dwight Pollett is my paternal grandfather. But I do mot know anything about her. Who her parents were, where she was born, who her husband was, etc.
