RE: Headstone for Robert Devore
Hi Jean,

I saw that someone else had stated there was no headstone; and they are correct. I took a picture of the 'ground' where he is buried as he is within a rectangle that has been cordoned off by cement. He is in I-100-9.

I thought I had gotten a picture of those headstones as well but am not finding them in my camera.

F. Gregory Johnson
The info for F. Gregory Johnson is incorrect with regard to his parents. He is my grandfather and it greatly concerns me that the names of his parents are listed incorrectly. The "F" does not stand for Frank. It is Francis and his parents are John Lewis Johnson and Serophine E. Speak.

RE: Hermann Pfeister?
Sorry, but does not appear to have any connection to my family. Our branch (Pfister) arrived in the states about 1840. All of my GreatGreat Grandfather's kids are accounted for.

Mary Ann Wofford Triplett

Mary Ann Wofford Triplett was my third Great Grandmother as well. We must be related? In the note you wrote the other daughter that you had no name was Georgia A. Triplett, my second Great Grandmother who died in 1893. She was married to my second Great Grandfather at the time of her death. He was Joseph Thomas Harris. They are both buried in New Hope Cemetery in Brandon Florida. He headstone says Georgia A. Harris. She was also married to Jacob Henry Inabnit before my GG......

Nathanial Avery
Hi Jean,

I finished reading the Newkirk Diamond Jubilee & did not see any references to the name Avery. There was a caveat in the issue that stated obviously there were many more contributors & participators in the run that they were not able to include.

I was somewhat disappointed myself at the lack of inclusion of the Scotts in the issue as my family was one of the original families in Newkirk & still reside on the homestead staked during the run.

If I come across any information in my future research, I will make sure to pass it along.

Information about Lafe Devore
Hi Jean,

In my research, I have a book called Newkirk and Kay County, Diamond Jubilee. I am reading it for information about my family during the Cherokee Strip Run.

I came across a Lafe Devore (with a small 'v' so not sure if it's the same family you are looking for). Basically it states that he homesteaded a farm across from Uncas, OK, at Dawson's Crossing. It says Lafe set up an outlying trading post, post office, and a general store. Also, shortly after 1900, Lafe pioneered a brick-making factory on his homestead. They were a soft red clay used as building materials & cistern purifiers.

Sorry to waste your time if this information isn't about your family. Just saw the name and thought you might be interested.

Thank you, -Ray

Search In Newkirk
You are very welcome. Find A Grave has been a Godsend for me in my research. I really appreciate all of the information others have added; so anything I can give back I will.

This is something my Dad & I enjoy and I got my husband on board, too. We esp. love looking at the really old headstones. I will be looking for any DeVores I can find.

Headstone for Robert Devore
Hi Jean,

My name is Ray. Newkirk is my hometown although I live in FL now. I am going home to visit my parents in May & we will be visiting the cemetery for our own family research. My Dad has a plot listing so I will try to get your pic for you.

It looks like someone already tried to find this headstone but was not successful. I will also try as my Dad & I like to walk around looking at headstones.

I will get back to you one way or another in May.

Thank you, -Ray
