Brad Bailey Sun Dec 21 1997
Hi!  My name is Brad Bailey and I am the great grandson of Molsie Nee Hawkins. She was a Full Blood Chickasaw Indian who lived in the Ardmore, Oklahoma area. I am searching for anyone with the Hawkins surname who might be a distant relative.  My great grandmother also had a sister named Josie or Josephine.  I know of no descendants of Josie, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.  I am including a link to my web page which gives a little more insight to the family line as we know it.  If you or someone you know with the Hawkins surname is of Chickasaw or Choctaw blood, please contact me.  You will find all the information I have at this time regarding the Hawkins Family at the bottom of my web page under the report referring to "?".  The question mark refers to the surname of my GGG Grandmother Mattahoya.

My Great Grandfather was George Franklin STEWART, b. April 1845 in Dent Co., MO.  He and his family went to Indian Territory circa 1884-1890.  I believe they frist settled in Stonewall or Lane, as a son, Thomas STEWART, was buried at Stonewall.  Then his wife, Mary Harvey PRIEST STEWART was buried at Lane.  George Franklin STEWART  was a Doctor in Ada and Stringtown, and is buried at Stringtown.  George had a brother Joshua D (Dawson) STEWART and a brother-in-law George H. (Harvey) PRIEST that came with him.  Joshua D. STEWART and some of his family is buried at Lightening Ridge Cemetery. George PRIEST was a school superintendent for several years. George and Joshua STEWART, both have descendants still living in that area. Perhaps George Priest does too.  I would love to correspond with people who relate to this family and exchange genealogical information with them. Since there seems to be no headstones for some of the people, I would be interested in Obits, etc. Happy Ancestor Hunting!! fax:  706-654-3962

Tom Cloud Wed Oct 1 13:38:36 1997
I'm seeking any information on Mary, John or Alice CLOUD, children of William Lafayette CLOUD, including birth, death, burial place and -- most importantly -- surviving descendants. They are descended from my great grandfather, William Lafayette Cloud (1851-1917) of Alabama to Austin Cty, TX to Center, I.T. and Konowa. John CLOUD was Seminole County Clerk and County Treasurer for many years -- possibly the first. I estimate his birthdate to be about 1881 and his business card as County Clerk shows him to be a young man, so he could have served as early as 1905 or so. I'm told he lived in Sasakwa and, besides being a politician, was a school teacher -- a John Cloud taught in Konowa up until the forties or fifties and I suspect it was him. Mary Cloud married a man named HOPGOOD and had children named Calvin HOPGOOD and Dick HOPGOOD. She later married George Raines. Alice Cloud married Bill SPAULDING and their children's names were Ruby Jewel SPAULDING, Sanford SPAULDING, and "Sis" SPAULDING. I have pictures of these people -- including John Cloud's business card as Seminole County Clerk -- and will be glad to share them with anyone who thinks they can help.

We are looking for a death certificate or death information for Allie Simons (Simmons)--maiden name or Allie Solomon--Married name. Died 1911 in Roff or Pauls Valley (we think). Looking for relatives (living or dead) also. Allie Solomon died shortly after giving birth to male child who lived for 4 weeks. We do not know if she lived in Pontotoc Co. when she was married. Possible Native American blood line for Allie--probably Cherokee.

Mike Taylor Sun Mar 9 2:00 1997
Looking for any information on a Charlie Overstreet and a Jane Bonds. They got married in 1896 in Center, OK, a few miles west of Ada, in Pontotoc County. According to family history, my Grandfather, Andrew Jackson Stephenson, and two girls, Jane and Jemima, may have been adopted by John and Rhoda Stephenson. My mother and a couple of aunts remember an "Uncle Charlie and Aunt Jane" visiting them often when they were children. No last name for Charley is known. Since Andrew and my Grandmother got married in Center OK in 1897, it is thought that the above marriage might be the marriage of the Jane that was apparently Andrew's sister. The Uncle Charlie and Aunt Jane were supposed to have been residents of Ada for many years. They were reported to have never had any children.
