Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Roberta Lea Williams Breaune Crum Breaune. Most of our family angels are buried in the Duffield Cemetery in Jay, Oklahoma. We grew up visiting this cemetery every year for all my life since my sister, Glenda, and I were adopted by Ruth Virginia Williams Breaune and her lifelong love, Joseph George Breaune. Our father, Robert E. Lee Williams was Ruth Breaune's brother. She and Daddy adopted us when Robert was lost in a car wreck and they gave us a wonderful life rich in history and appreciation for the past. My bio-mother, Morine Williams Hibberts, died of cancer many years ago. I married Lloyd Richard Crum and we had 4 children. Kelly, who died in infancy, and 3 daughters, Denise, Michelle, who passed away February 23, 2014, and Amanda. We divorced after 24 years. I have 2 wonderful grandchildren, Brave Dave, 14, (because he messes with his grandmother) and Miss Miranda, 12. I am an R.N. and 2 daughters, the grandchildren, and one son-in-law and I live on the family farm outside of Miami, Oklahoma. If we can visit a cemetery in our area and get cemetery information or photos for you, let us know. We often upload entire areas because our area has so many tiny and forgotten cemeteries. If anyone needs us to transfer a memorial to them and it is not for our family member, just send us a message. This is important and we are glad to do do it. You'll see us listed under my name and Amanda May and Brave Dave.
Thank you so much for this site.

Shirley Reynolds Presnell/Harvey Presnell
Hi Roberta...

I was wondering if maybe you could help me out. I noticed that you contributed several photos from Williams Coal Creek Cemetery in Miami, Oklahoma for the surname Reynolds.

A while back I submitted a photo request sometime back for the grave of Harvey Presnell. Harvey had been married to a Shirley Reynolds, who should also be buried in that cemetery as well. One of Harvey & Shirley's grandchildren is one of my roommates and I am direly trying to get a photo of their headstones for him.

I received a message from another user that told me that she was unable to locate Harvey's grave. My roommate tells me that he should be buried right next to his grandmother who's name is Shirley Reynolds Presnell. Unfortunately, there is currently no Find A Grave memorial for Mrs. Presnell.

What I was wondering is if it would be possible for you to visit the cemetery and see if you could find a headstone for Shirley and also see if Harvey has a headstone as well. Harvey is Find A Grave memorial #64436830.

Thank you so much!
-Terry

Francis M Geboe
Roberta,
Is it possible that Francis M and Pearl M Geboe are one and the same? I have Pearl May as the only child with David and Lillie on the 1899 Indian census. I wonder if her first name was actually Francis (Frances) and the M is for May. Maybe they called her Pearl?
My great grandfather, William Sanford White married Elnora Hinkle England when he was widowed in about 1900. When he died, she married David Geboe. He is listed as buried with Elnora in unmarked graves next to his *child by Lilly.

RE: Sinai Price
No, no Irene in my tree. Flossie's maiden name was McDonnar. And its just a maybe that she and Alvis/Alver Casey (my Alvis/Alver Casey) were married. If they were married, they had three children: Ralph, Beatrice and Marion (no Irene).

The whole Casey side of my tree is a little sketchy..Ive often wished I would have paid attention when my grandmother was telling tales years ago about her first marriage (to Elsworth), etc. I always thought that she was making up stories as she went!

Elsworth does have another child (my half-Aunt, if you will), by the name of Virginia Casey. She was born in Tucson, Az. in 1942. Ive never met her either nor have I ever spoken with her. Its only by chance that I am aware of her.

Thus, Sinai had two Casey grandchildren through her son Elsworth. Could I perhaps call you sometime? I dont want to bother you with this ancestry stuff but must admit I am very curious about your grandmother Sinai (how is this name pronounced?), and would enjoy hearing more about her, but I dont want to intrude into your memories. I understand if this exchange has been enough. Tanks for you kindness.

RE: Sinai horst
Well, this is interesting stuff. I had to go back and look at the information I have about Alvis/Alvers Casey. I appears that he and Sinai must have divorced as I found a record indicating that he may have married in 1913 to a woman named Flossie. Alvis/Alvers is buried in Pryor, Mayes County, Oklahoma. He died in 1922. With regard to Elsworth (or Ellsworth), at some time in his life he moved to Casa Grande, Arizona and married for a second time (this was after he divorced my paternal grandmother, the mother of my father, Oldham Casey). I never met Elsworth; he died of a heart attack while at a local drug store. He was about 53 years old. To my knowledge, Elsworth is buried in Casa Grande, Az. So, Elsworth would be Sinai's son by her marriage to Alvis/Alver. I have to wonder if Sinai ever wrote to my father Oldham, or to her previous daughter-in-law to ask about her grandson. Guess we'll never know. I would so love to see pictures of her. Just curious, you know? I live in Winslow, Arizona, and to my knowledge am the last "Casey" in this thin branch of the tree.

RE: Sinai Price Williams Horst
Hello Roberta!
I am so happy to hear from you! Felt I was taking a risk in making contact as some people might be uncomfortable about these sort of things. I wish I knew (so much) more about Sinai's first husband - Alvis Casey. I believe he died during their marriage; he was 34 years old. They had one son - Ellsworth Casey, who would have been about 10 years old when Sinai married Mr. Williams. Ellsworth eventually married my grandmother and they had one son - Oldham Samuel Casey - who is my father. My father and grandmother wouldn't talk about Alvis and/or Sinai and I often felt that there was strain or bad feelings between the families. I expect you wouldn't have information about Alvis Casey but I am glad you have wonderful memories of your grandmother, Sinai. Would love to see photos of her, and appreciate the one you include in the "Find A Grave" web. Hey, nice to meet you cousin!

Sinai Price Williams Horst
Good Morning Ms. Crum,

My name is Cindy Casey (Dongoske). I have become aware of your website though my research at Ancestry.com and I thank you for your efforts. Ive been conducting research on my heritage for over 10 years; several years ago I found my great-grandmother (who I never knew) through my research in the Ancestry.com database. I learned that she was Sinai Price who's first marriage was to Alver Casey. She had a son with Alver, his name was Elsworth Casey. Elsworth Casey married and had a son named Olham Samuel Casey - my father. What I am hoping for from you (and perhaps your family?) is some information about Sinai, any additional photographs you might be willing to share of her, etc. Did you know that she was married prior to her marriage with Mr. Williams? My father did not know her and Ive no information about her, who she was. Would you be willing to help me? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
