"My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before."

You are welcome. Glad I could take it for you.
|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

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.

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!
