I am interested in finding out the names of my great grandparents. I know my grandparents, George Hulet (DOB: 1901)and Hester Stephens (DOB: 16Dec1905) have a marriage certificate from Latimer County.
Marriage Date: March 23, 1924 (to the best of my knowledge).  I believe Hester's mother's first name may have been Pearl (Stephens may have been a 2nd or 3rd marriage name). Any further information you may be able to provide me with will be greatly appreciated. I am the Granddaughter of George and Hester.  My father was George and Hester's first son and he has been deceased since about 1953, due to death in an auto accident. George, Hester, and my father, George Hulet Jr. lived in Warren, Michigan in the 1940's onward. I believe both George Sr. and Hester were born in Oklahoma and lived there until they married.

Searching for the parents and lineage of John Thomas Harris (1871 - 1945).  He married Mary Lewis Hodge (1875 - 1951).  I have found conflicting information on his parents.  His birth certificate indicates parents were "WP Harris" (writing is unclear) and Margret L. Brown.  I have another source indicating that his father was named Nelson P.  There is a Margret L. Harris buried in the Wilburton City Cemetery, whose headstone indicates she was married to a Nelson P.  She died August 25, 1915.  If any has or can acquire a copy of her obituary from the local Wilburton/Latimer Co. paper, I would love to get that.   I'm thinking she is the mother of John Thomas, but haven't been able to make the connection for sure.  If anyone had any additional information on John Thomas Harris, Margret  (Brown) Harris or Nelson P. Harris, I would appreciate that. I'm also looking for more info on John Thomas' lineage.  A family history I have suggests Nelson Harris was his father, and that Nelson was born in NC in 1822 and died about 1881, location unknown.  This genealogy traces the family to the Isle of Wight in Virginia, back to the early 17th century.  If there are other Harris genealogists out there with information, I am very interested in connecting.

I'm looking for death dates & places, and hopefully obits for Addison and Phoebe.  I am not able to locate them on the 1920 Latimer Co OK census, so I think they may have died before 1920.  Addison was originally from Pike Co KY, and was closely related to the McCoy clan of the Hatfield-McCoy feud.  I understand the Latimer County News-Democrat paper goes back to about 1915 (maybe even earlier)...could someone help with a look-up please? Found the following:
1910 Latimer Co OK (Gowen Twp., Page 13-A, ED # 139, HH # 85)
Addison McCoy, 69, Head, Male, White,
m.2@48yrs, KY KY VA,  Farmer
Febie McCoy, 62, Wife, Female, White,
m.1@48yrs, KY KY KY, 9 children / 7 living
Willie McCoy, 33, Son, Male, White, single, WV KY KY
