EYSTER, James R. (1890's) Thomas, Custer County, Oklahoma
I am Delbert Eyster, presently living in Washington County, Maryland. I am presently gathering information on my family in Custer County, Oklahoma. My grandfather and his brother James R. Eyster and David R. Eyster traveled to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) when the government opened western Oklahoma Territory to settlement. They settled in or around Thomas. I would like to swap anything you may have on families who settled in Oklahoma Territory in the early 1890's. Although I am gathering information on the Eyster family in this area, there are other family groupings that married into this group, i.e. FRYMIRES, BOOKS, SWITZERS, ENGLE, and ALVIS. Thanks for sharing.

Any information on the Picklesimer family or their descendents. Jason died sometimes between 1900 and 1910 at his son Dolph Picklesimer. In the same county in 1900 was his brother George W.

Jason's wife was Mary Ann HIGDON whose cousins had moved to Granite. One of the Picklesimer brothers was known as "Red Buck" Picklesimer. My great grandfather, George M.

CONKLIN, Sarah Elizabeth Martin (1898) Weatherford, Custer County, OK
My Great-Grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Martin CONKLIN, born 11 Sep 1960 in Barry County, MO, died in Weatherford, Custer County, OK, 24 Jul 1898. Is there someone in Weatherford who would be willing to look up her name in the Cemetery listings? I do not know why she was buried there, as her immediate family lived in Baylor County, TX. It is possible her parental family lived in Weatherford, and that she might be buried in a family plot. If there is anyone who can suggest some other way I can find a record of her death, I will appreciate it very much. (I believe she had a brother named Harrison, if that would help.) Thank you.
