Looking for any information regarding my ancestor, Asbury Hilliard Matthews who died in Pauls Valley, OK on July 27 1890. He and his family must have been residents, because his son was born in Marlow, OK in 1891.
He may be buried in the Old Cemetery at Pauls Valley. Is there someone I can direct my inquiry to see if there any obituaries, or land  or probate records?

Surname:  PARKER
Submitted on 6Oct2014 by: Larry Hardesty
Researching Charles Parker.  He robbed an army paymaster in March 1887 at the Antelope Springs Stage Station in Wyoming.  He was captured August 1887 in Gandy, Nebraska.  He served almost five years in the Wyoming prison.  When released he was taken to Texas and convicted of an 1885 murder.  He claimed was a case of misidentifying him.  He appealed and lost.  However, in 1903 he was pardoned by the Texas governor.  The last newspaper account I have of him is that he was going to Wynnewood to visit his widowed mother.  I lost track of him after that time.  I assume his mother’s last name was Parker.  Anyone have any further information on Charles Parker of Garvin County.

Surnames: WALKER, HANCOCK
Submitted on 21Mar2014 by: Stephanie Anderson
I came across a photo in my great Aunt Ruby B. (Walker) Hancock’s photos that were recently loaned to me by her daughter to identify and archive. There were a lot of photos labeled unknown but enclosed is one that at the bottom has “Martin Bro.’s” and then towards the right hand bottom corner in smaller font is “Wynnewood, I.T.”. I think those letters are I.T. at least. The enclosed photo has been cropped out of a larger scan with other pictures, thus the edited at the end of the file name. Was there a Martin Bro’s photography in Wynnewood?
Other than that, just wanted to share the…we don’t know who is in the photo. I’ve also posted the photo on deadfred.com http://www.deadfred.com/photos/80797.jpg (link to photo)

Surname: TAYLOR, NIX
Submitted on 1May2012 by:
Peggy Luckett
Looking for records of my great grandfather, Allison W. Taylor. He lived in the Wynnewood area. His wife died before him and I believe she is buried in the Oaklawn Cemetery in Wynnewood. I found records on their webpage that appears to be hers. I thought her name was Lydah Powell Taylor, but the record I found for her was Elidie W. Powell Taylor, who died on December 2, 1910. The burial plot was paid for by A.W. Taylor, who I assume was my great grandfather. I did not find any listing for him at that cemetery.
We believe that my great grandfather died around 1924 in Garvin County. He lived near or with his daughter (my maternal grandmother), Ola Nix who farmed near or around Katie, Oklahoma. I've checked the lists that I've found online for Oklahoma cemeteries, but have not been successful thus far. Since I do not have an exact date of death or birth for that matter, I do not know where else to look.

Surname: BOYLAN
Submitted on 28Mar2012 by
Robin Rogers
If anyone knows anything.
1) His last name was Boylan, he was Irish, he was a drunk, and worked on the Oklahoma railroad building process.
2) He was married and had at least five kids, one whose name was Josephine Boylan b.1876-d.1946. Josephine was born on an "Oklahoma Indian Reservation" according to family lore, but at that time it would have been "Indian Territory" before the land rush in 1889.
3) That places GGGrandfather Boylan and his wife in Oklahoma at least in 1876.
4) Sometime later, GGGrandmother Boylan got tired of GGGrandfather Boylan's drunkenness and left for Boston, MA with the five kids, so GGGrandfather Boylan was either divorced or separated later on. GGGrandmother Boylan ran a boarding house in Boston.

Surname:  BISHOP
Submitted on 19Aug2011 by
Gladys Was there ever a sexton or someone that kept records for Antioch Cemetery? My grandfather Hiram Bishop d 1923 and his father Richard/Dick Bishop d 1936  are both buried there but do have not headstones - I have added both< to the Antioch Cemetery site.  They are  buried in the "Bishop Family Plot" and most other graves have some sort of headstone. There is a headstone however that I found on find-a-grave that is of unknown dates and am wondering if there is anyway I can identify it.   It could be Susan Ella Bishop wife of Richard who died 1934, but her death certificate only stated she was to be buried in Paul's Valley. Just before my grandmother died in 1995 - wife of Hiram Bishop, she started mentioning and making reference to baby "Helen or Ellen" that was buried in Antioch Cemetery.   Our family has never heard of this baby, so it is possible she was still born.  It is also possible this little angel is a twin to my mother. Any information would help.

Surnames:  HAMMOND, ALLEN
Submitted on 26Jan2011 by: Lucy Ogden
I am researching the Hammond Family, which was merged with the Allen family who lived at one time in Stratford Oklahoma. David E.
Allen, a resident of Stratford, I think, was descended from the marriage of Myrtle Ora Hammond and Wirt Allen several generations back.  I am
writing you to see if perhaps you know Nadine Allen, the wife of David, and could forward her an email for me.  I have run across her name a
time or two on the internet while researching the Hammonds and think she might have some info that would be helpful to me.  I emailed an address
I found on your McGee Cemetery reference but it was returned to me.  I thought perhaps Stratford is small enough that you would know her.  Here
is the email I would like to get to her:  Dear Nadine, I hope I have the right Nadine Allen.  I saw this name on an online reference regarding the Hammond family and just now thought to search it in Stratford, Oklahoma, which is where one of my Hammond ancestor's descendants is listed as living.  This gave me your email address. I am wondering if you are the person that can confirm that the wife of Alford Bracey Hammond (born about 1819 in Marion County, MS) was named Louisa Cagle.  If so, do you have access to any further info on her?  I have been looking long and hard for clues to trace her ancestry.  It would be such a boost if you can confirm this. Please pardon me if I have addressed the wrong person and this does not make any sense to you.  Also, fyi, where I first saw the reference was at this link: http://www.bellcountypubliclibraries.org/crm/hammons/benjamin.html.  It was on the Alford Bracey link, but the link seems be not working at the moment.  Thanks

Does anyone know of an Indian Constable in Wynnewood named William Bailey?  He served in the Spanish American War as a Rough Rider with Teddy Roosevelt.  He was appointed in 1905.
Does Wynnewood have any old pictures of the lawmen there?  Perhaps a museum or something like that?

I am looking for any information on my Grandfather - Richard Ross - dob around 1905 who lived in the Bailey and later in life in Lindsay, Ok.  Brother Ira and sister in Law Margaret Bible Ross are both buried in Greenhill Cemetery.  Perhaps Richard is buried there as well?  Not sure of the date of death...I believe there may still be relatives living in the area, other brother was Clarence.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Tried numerous times to contact Jesse about Ed Kemp.  Buried in the Abney family cemetery.  He is in charge of all records pertaining to the cemetery.  I believe Ed might have been my great grandfather.  He was from the area and I have not been able to locate any records concerning him.  Most of the Kemp family is now deceased, including my father lost 2005 to lung cancer. 
Please would you send  his e-mail address or an address or phone number where I might reach him. 
Also the County Coordinator for Garvin County needs to change the e-mail address on the Cemetery Page.  Thanks

My grandparents were married in 1904 in the Chickasaw Indian Nation.  Grandma was 14 or 15 and grandpa was 25.. I input data for the Mormon Church and am doing OK 1905 marriage licenses at this time.. Since my grandmother was only 14 or 16, wouldn't she have had her father (mother dead) or a guardian sign for her to get married?  Where would I write to find their marriage license?  Their names were Robert L. McGee and Myrtle L. Taylor
My G. grandparents and grandparents lived outside Pauls Valley, near 7 Shooter and Oakdale school.  They are buried in the Lewis Cemetery.
