Family Connection Gray/Moyer
Connie, I am not sure that this is the way to try and get in touch with you, forgive me if I have gone about this all wrong.

I have been trying to find out more about my
family and how everyone is connected. My Great Grandmother was Emeretta Jane Moyer that had a son out of wedlock, he was my Grandfather Edward Louis Moyer. Emeretta was the Daughter of David and Rachel (Gray) Moyer.

Anything that you would be willing to share with me in regards to family would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Meekers
HA!Thanks for the message. That just shows how far behind I am. I paid $23 for a copy of the book and it took me 3 weeks to have a copy from Google. I'll have to check on a Kindle*. I don't know if you have been searching the Hildebrand line to Nancy Ward and the Foreman line but both are in the Geo. Meeker line as mentioned in the book. Best Regards. KL
*maybe too advanced for me. Also Joseph Martin line is very interesting.

RE: Meekers
Due to your message I have checked on the copy of Emmet Starr's book-History of the Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folk Lore.On page 623 there is 16 line write up of George Weigand Meeker who would have been the father of R.L. Meeker. Sorry for any confusion. As mentioned before, one of my sons has the original copy with his (George's) name of it.I only recently purchased a new printing. If you are unable to find a copy of the write up, let me know it you would like the text via the internet or a copy via the mail. I just checked my charts. George would be my second cousin twice removed! :-)

RE: Meekers
This a follow up to earlier messages.I have had a copy of Emmit Starr's' History and Legends of the Cherokee Nation that had the name of RL Meeker on it. It was not in good shape when I inherited it from an Aunt, Gladys R. Lowrey who would have been a first cousin to RL. That book has now been passed on to one of my sons. It was not in good shape but the front cover still had RL Meeker on the front. I now have a recent publication but the one I inherited had a leather like cover. My aunt said that Emmit Starr was asking for stories and pictures of Cherokes at the time-c 1922 but my grandparents didn't want to shell out the money to be included. Apparently RL did. :-)
PS: I am still trying to find a home for the picture of Conrad Kirk taken in his US Army uniform about 1943. He would have been a cousin of RL.

This is a long shot. I just found record of a 1920 census of the George Meeker family in Brewer, OK. I had found it while pursuing the mother, Bertha Belle Patrick. That census listed children, Foster 12, R.L. age 6 and a Kirk, Conrad age 12 who I believe was the son of Anne Patrick and George Johnson Kirk,who was a murdered police officer. My father, Vance Lowrey was a cousin and a couple of years older that Foster and Conrad Kirk but knew them well. Over the years I have inherited a number of pictures including one of Conrad Kirk in a portrait in his US Army uniform. I need to find a home for it and pass it on. I have to be weeding lots of stuff. PS-I never knew of Brewer OK>>

Looking for Hawkins family info
Connie - are you the same Connie that was posting on Gen Forum back in 2008 about the Hawkins family and Mary Jane Schallonberger?

If you are, I believe I am the same removed from Mary Jane as you are. I am the granddaughter of Cecil June Hawkins. My father and I did a bunch of research in Yale, OK in the late 90s, but my parents lost their house (and all of our research) in a fire in the 2000s.

One of your posts said that you might have some family pictures and other information. I also saw the response from Constance Peck, which provides a lot of information.

I'm planning a trip back to Oklahoma soon, but would like to gather as much information as I can before I go.

If you aren't the same Connie, thank you anyway.
