Daniel Bose Steger is my Dad and his Mom, Annie Marie Hathorn, nee Caver, has a grave between them. The grave is "Snap" Cumby, Josey Cumby, nee Caver's son. Grandma married L S Hathorn after Richard Steger died. Grandma stood over six feet and had a copper color hue. She attended Langston University and she was a pistol in her early years. Her Grandson, Ralph went on many fishing trip with her. Being at a young age, I didn't always enjoy being at the fishing hole so my Great-grandpa Bose Caver would keep me until she returned. He had a great deal of money during his early years, he bought a new model T in the 1920's, so he had some stories to tell me. But my favorites were about his African and Native American heritages. He stood over 6 feet and a few inches tall and he stood straight all the years I knew him. He had stock in the Negro Stock Market of Tulsa fame. He donated land for Union Hill Cem. Back to the child sitting: I usually played sick so that grandma would leave me with Great-grandpa, but one time Bose had something to do and she dropped me over at my mother's Grandma, Katie Taylor. I was scared of her because she talked gruff to everybody and I didn't want to go back there. Nobody else would sit with me, because I was born with a vail over my face, so I'm told and I could see ghosts during my early years. I can still remember some of the episodes. I don't know if my Brother Charles had a formal Headstone, but there was a marker there. During the 1930's I don't know what the procedures were about newborn/stillborn burials.
