I am searching for any record of or for any descendants of the Hoffman line of which my father was a part. Specifically: John Thomas Hoffman and Belle (maiden name Roach) Hoffman. His brother: Charles Linsley Hoffman, known to have been married and who fathered at least one son whose first name is unknown. Their sister: Margaret (Maggie) Hoffman McCall. Maggie remarried Eugene Arthur McCall in 1916 in Perry, Oklahoma. Maggie's daughter: Faye (born Harris from Maggie's first husband Samuel T. Harris) and Faye's second husband who was L.G. Robertson. Prior to her marriage to L.G. in Tulsa in 1927, Faye often used "Sanders" as her last name, although she had been divorced from Charles Sanders in 1925. John, Charles and Maggie were born to Charles and S.J. (Lou) (maiden name Doyle) Hoffman in Missouri or Kansas in the early 1880's.

In 1907 my grandfather was diagnosed with TB in Tulsa County (he lived in Jenks). He was required to leave his wife and children and go SOMEWHERE. What were his options as to where they would send him? Around 1972 they shut down the Sanitariums. It was alleged to me by the Oklahoma Department of Health, that the records from these facilities were sent back to the home county of the TB victim. I have called the court house, but no one seems to know where these records are held...IF they ARE held. My grandfather was an immigrant from Alsace-Lorraine, supposedly. We know nothing more about him other than name and birth-date. I was hoping the records from the sanitarium might give some clues. ANY HELP OUT THERE? Does any one know how to find these records? He died in 1926, death certificate comfirms TB. THANK YOU

Was there a Sacred Heart near Tulsa around 1899 ? My GGrandfather William W. Tate was supposed to have died as the result of fighting a fire around 1899. I have searched Sacred Heart Ok, in Pottowommie Co., but have found nothing.
