County, OK. Father D. G. MCGINTY, mother Mary Ellen (WALCHER) MCGINTY

I have found additional information on Frank Wolf's family and want to revise the Ellis County query I currently have listed to the following:
Frank WOLF moved from Wichita, KS. to Day Township, Ellis County, Oklahoma in 1902. He had married a Lizzie (Unknown) in 1888.
Frank was born in Montana in 1865 and both of his parents were from Germany. Lizzie was born in Indiana in 1872 with both of her parents being born in Indiana.
Frank & Lizzie had their first five children in Kansas consisting of Clarence in June 1890, Clifford in May 1892, Jacob in February 1895, Olive in July 1896, Robert in 1901. Their last four children were born in Oklahoma consisting of Florence about 1902, Albert about 1907, Leo about 1910 and Ruby about 1912.
Olive married 30 Dec 1915 to Ira F. Bowles.
Florence married 14 June 1919 to Crow Moore.
Robert married 19 August 1921 to Leona Day.
Each of these Wolf children listed their marriage record residence as Grand, Oklahoma. Frank and Lizzie Wolf purchased 160 acres northeast of Grand, Oklahoma in 1917 and sold the property in 1924 to R. Schwint. I know the town of Grand, Oklahoma folded September 30, 1943.
I have researched all of Frank Wolf's brothers (3) and sister and all their descendants (and second marriage of Frank's mother) from the 1800's to the present time consisting of 544 individual blood relatives. However, I have not found any other data on Frank
and Lizzie or their descendants (except for the above information). The
obituaries of Frank's step-father in 1921 and Frank's mother in 1926 state
that Frank and his family were living in Grand, Oklahoma those two years. Any assistance in finding information about the WOLF or the other married surnames would be appreciated. They seem to have fallen
off the earth as I have not been able to find any death records on any of
the eleven Wolf individuals.Roger Smith email@example.com

Suann Moore My
grandmother's family were in the Ellis County, Rock Township area between
1896 and 1910. My great grandfather was Elihu Quillen and his wife was
May Pierce. Their children were Glenn, Claude, Grace, Mary, Chester, Nina,
Raymond, and Opal. It is possible that Raymond and Opal were born in Ellis
county. Elihu worked for the railroad, and moved from Kansas. Raymond moved
back to Oklahoma in his adult years and may have died in OK. I remember
his wife and son came to visit my grandmother, Mary (Mollie) Quillen Thompson.
Raymond's son would probably be in his 40's. Thank you for any information.
Danny Oberst I
am researching the SIDDENS family of Gage. My great Grandfather Isaiah
H. Siddens moved his family from Floydada, TX to Gage around 1893 - 1895
and started a general store. He and his wife (Susan) were founding members
of the Congregational Church in Gage. They had 7 children: Effie, Eva,
Leah, Flora, Albert,Verna and Loretta. Any additional information would
be appreciated. I plan to visit Gage sometime in late October 1997 to research
what I can.
According to the information I have; Ellis county was started in 1907 from
two other counties; Day and Woodward. At that time were all previous county
records transfered to Ellis county court house in Arnett? I am researching
family history (BLACKBURN) and my grandparents homesteaded in Ellis county,
moved in and out of the county for a number of years and then settled there
again. They are both buried in the cemetery in Gage. My grandmother died
in 1930 and my grandfather in 1940. I was wondering about county records
for marriages, deaths, and land records; what is available? Also, do you
know if there is any school records anywhere of schools that would have
been in operation between 1908-1928 in the Gage area? Thank you for your
assistance. Mary Blackburn
