I'm looking for information on the Baker family that lived in the Le Flore/Haskell Co. Oklahoma area. Grandpa was named Charles Gilbert Baker and Grandma was Mary Elizabeth 'Chipley' Baker. The Bakers ran a small family store near Howe and Heavener for many years. There is suppose to be an Indian connection on the Baker's side. Does anyone know who the Indian was or what the Baker Indian number was? If you have any information about this family or have family ties to them please contact me at

Looking for information on the line of George W. THOMAS and his son Charlie F. They were to have been in Muskcogee Co around 1900. They left in 1915. A newspaper in Shirley, AR, where they were from and moved back to, stated that Mrs. Matilda THOMAS and children returned from Muskogee, OK and that Mr. G. W. THOMAS was to follow after selling their crop. Other family members and connected lines may have stayed in OK. These lines are GOODNIGHT, HARNESS, HENSLEY, MOODY and WEAVER. Any help would be most welcome.

I am searching for any records on the death of Elizabeth (Lizzy) HASH. Esther Elizabeth HASH was born about 1844 in Madison or Washington Co., AR. On December 24, 1864 or 1865 she married John Knox POOL. On July 25, 1979 the POOLs divorced, and Lizzy had her maiden name restored. Family legend has it that around 1890 she went to Muskogee, Oklahoma, where she died before 1894. She may have accompanied a daughter Elizabeth who may have married a man named MOLOY.

Kerri Southard Fri Jun 13 19:49:18 1997
My Cherokee great-grandmother (b. ~1900) Alice Mae(?) LEE MUSE, died in Oklahoma in approximately 1928 (my grandma, Lorraine Elizabeth MUSE, was born in 1916 and said her mother died when she was ~12). She was apparently in a car accident and died soon after due to unknown-about internal injuries. She was buried in Prairie Co., Arkansas. This is all I've been able to get on her. I would like to get her death certificate but my information is not specific enough. I don't know the specific date or even the town she was in. I believe she had family ties in the Muskogee Co. and Sequoyah Co. areas, and possibly Sallisaw, and that is where I'm beginning to search for her death info. Her parents were Albert(?) "Al" (a blacksmith) and Elizabeth "Lizzie" LEE who resided in AR. She was married to Thomas Jefferson MUSE. I would appreciate any help (obits, newspaper clipping, death index, whatever) anyone out there can give me. Thanks a bunch! KS
