My paternal great-grandparents lived in Wilson, Carter Co, Okla for quite awhile. I believe they went there after their son, Earl HIGHTOWER came back from WWI. My great-grandfather was George Valandingham HIGHTOWER who died there in March 1929. His wife, Mary May (SLANKARD) HIGHTOWER remained there in their home until she got sickly about 1950. She stayed in the home of her son and his wife, Ralph and Era (WILLIAMS) HIGHTOWER in Ardmore. She died in 1953 in a Pawhuska, Osage Co, Ok nursing home. Both she, George and Earl are buried there in Wilson. Ralph and his wife are buried in Cushing, Payne Co, Ok. My grandfather, Lloyd Eratus HIGHTOWER lived in Vinita, Craig Co, Ok from 1932 until he died in 1963. George and Mary had 3 daughters and 4 sons of which I have info on. I have ancestry of both lines-HIGHTOWER and SLANKARD.
Coincidentally, I know that there was another HIGHTOWER family there as listed in the earlier copy of the Carter county history book. I saw it one time, but never did get a copy of it. Since then, I have a HIGHTOWER database which includes some info on that family. They would have been distant cousins, although I do not know if they were aware of that. I would share any info on them that I have. I have not been to Wilson since about 1953 at the age of 10.

REEVES/REAVES (1940's) Ardmore, Carter Co., OK
I am trying to locate cousins of a REEVES/REAVES that died in the early 1940's in Carter County. I have read the Carter County Cemeteries listings, written to OKC for the death record(no response), called the county clerk, county library. Mildred E. Hendricks REEVES/REAVES died in the 1940's in the Ardmore area. The info I have is she was born in Kaufman Co., TX and married in OK to John REEVES/REAVES. Children were Bondy/Bondie (son) and another son and a daughter, Letcher B. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what I might try next?

PATTERSON, Ruth (1917) Cheek or Healdton, Carter County, OK
I need to verify that Ruth E. PATTERSON is buried in Hewitt Cemetery in Headlton, OK. She died at the approximately 18 months and was born around 1915 (probably in Ft. Scott, KS). I need to obtain the dates of birth and death and verify where she is buried. My wife was named for her and we have been looking for her for years. The parents of this Ruth PATTERSON were my wife's grandparents. To aid in verifying that she is my wife's aunt, if possible, identify her parents. I would appreciate any information in tracking her down. I was told she died in Cheek, OK. If possible give full dates of birth & death (mo/dy/yr).

My name is Brad Bailey and I am the great grandson of Molsie Nee HAWKINS. She was a Full Blood Chickasaw Indian who lived in the Ardmore, Oklahoma area. I am searching for anyone with the Hawkins surname who might be a distant relative. My great grandmother also had a sister named Josie or Josephine. I know of no descendants of Josie, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. If you or someone you know with the HAWKINS surname is of Chickasaw or Choctaw blood, please contact me. The surname of my GGG Grandmother is MATTAHOYA. Thank you.
