George W. Self

Submitted by JoLynn Self

George W. Self is buried in the Cloudy Cemetery, Pushmata county, Oklahoma
His death record shows he is there in an unmarked grave. It states on his death record that neighbors buried him.

George W. Self was born Dec 25 1872 in Honey Grove, Fannin County Texas to William Carrol & Mary Caroline "Carrie" Baxter Self. He married Emma Margerette Pritchett abt. 1907. George died May 22, 1923 in Cloudy, Ok.
George death record was not filed until 1926. I guess so she can get remarried.

George and Emma had the following children who I can't seem to find any thing on.
Letcher Bea/Lettia J. Self born abt. Dec. 1908
Carrie Bille Self born abt. Feb. 1910
Infant Self
Ollie Self (female) born abt. 1913
Jewel Self born abt. 1915
Dudie F. Self born abt. 1917
Nancy/Nannie Self born abt. 1917
Eva Self born abt. 1919
William Self born abt. 1923

After George died Emma married Albert Horn Sep 4 1926 in Choctaw County, Oklahoma.

(RE: to 1920 Census George Self- Parents birth place info is wrong & George's birth date as well.
Some one else besides George had to have answered the census questions.
George's Parents were born in Alabama and Georgia and he was born in 1873.
