Looking for the death and burying place of Durham W. Graham. All I know is that he was alive in Baylor Co TX in 1880 and his wife, Mary, was a widow in 1900 living with her son Clayton R. Wheeler and his family. I would also like her death record; she was still alive on the 1910 Census at 81 years old. Clayton Wheeler is my grandfather and his family was back in Hopkins County TX in 1914 and I do not believe she was with them. The family was in Norman OK on the 1900 and 1910 census

My daughter and I are working on our family history together. We have a family member, Ida Blanche Walters Richardson, who is buried in Shiloh Cemetery. She married Ellis A. Richardson who was married several times. We are just starting on this branch of the family. We have a time crunch as my Grandmother, Lola Richardson Adcock is 97 and is enjoying our findings about the family and this is her branch. She was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and I would love to give her something to read about her family. We would share anything about the Adcock branch with those interested. Ida was born 12-24-1865 and died 5-10-1913. Ellis was born 11-07-1851 and died 9-9-1945 in Allen, Ok.

My father, Jack BURKS was born May 25, 1918. He attended Falls School. His parents were Jess BURKS and Maggie COOPER. They moved to McIntosh Co OK about 1928. Would like to hear from anyone who might have some additional information on these lines, would love to share what I have. Many of our BURKS family are buried in the Falls Cemetery. Especially would like to contact someone who has any data on Dixie SANDERS who married a Robert HINES, she would have been the daughter of Lou COOPER SANDERS GUNTER.

Marion Benjamin Gibson's family lived in Lexington and the children went to school there. They were there before 1897 and didn't leave for Idaho until about 1910. They were very poor, Marion worked as a carpenter. Does anyone know what Lexington was like in those days?

I am looking for a person by the name of Felix Good, born November 1848. I believe he is burried in Lexington as that is the last known location in which he resided. He could have passed anytime between 1900 and 1905 although a 1904-1905 range is most likely. I really want to find this guy. My research ends with him, he shows up on one census over a fifty year period. He is very much a mystery. I would like to join that mailing list, would you please send me the info.

I am desperate to find out anything about the Oklahoma State Hospital in Norman, OK. My great-grandfather, Edward Ruddick was admitted to this facility 13 March 1921 with severe epilepsy. He died in 1943 but I don't know where he would have been buried. His wife lied and told his children that he had died and she remarried, therefore he is NOT buried in the family cemetary. He died in the Oklahoma State Hospital.

Elizabeth Thomas FINUFF, born 10 Nov 1844 PA, married 10 Oct 1864 Theophilis Paul FINUFF. Theophilis died 16 Jan 1913 Verden, Grady, OK and is buried in Verden Cemetery. Elizabeth Thomas FINUFF died 20 Mar 1902, Franklin, Cleveland, OK and is buried in Blackburn Cemetery, Franklin, Cleveland, OK. Would like obituary from newspaper and complete transcription from cemetery headstone plus/or any and all available information on this family. Six children; Viola L. FINUFF; Ada E. FINUFF; Orilla E. FINUFF; Clarence A. FINUFF; Mary Edith FINUFF; David Mark FINUFF. Could you tell me if Cleveland County Genealogical Society does "Lookups" in your publications that might give me information of ANY kind about this family. Theophilus died and was buried in Verden OK so the whole family may have moved away from Franklin after the death of Elizabeth in 1902. I am hoping that some of the children married and settled down in Franklin and stayed even after their father died.

Searching for info on my grandfather Clayton R. Wheeler - when he came to Cleveland County and when he left. I have been to Norman and could not find him on any census records; however, he owned some town lots between 1904-1908. My father was born in 1903. Did not know to look at tax records then but actually they were not available at the Genealogical Society. She said someone who was not there had the key. Would these records go back as far as 1885? I believe he was there in 1889 because he was supposed to have talked about the land rush. A name that I did not have when I was there was Durham W. Graham. I believe this was his stepfather and perhaps they lived with him. I found him with this family in 1880 in Baylor County, TX. This may not be in your area but I did want to know about the tax records. If you can give me the address of a look-up person, I will appreciate that. I'll make another trip if I think it would be worthwhile.

LEVERICH/BEVER/FREEL-CLEVELAND CO, MOORE TWP My LEVERICH family was one of the early families of Cleveland Co, in the Moore twp area. At the funeral of my grandfather, I found out that the BEVERS family was also one of the early families. I know that the LEVERICH family is buried in the MOORE CEMETERY. I was told that the BEVERS family was also. Would anyone with access to the MOORE CEMETERY index look for this surname for me? If it is there, I want to purchase the cemetery book. If it is not there, would anyone be willing to check the other cemetery books to find which ones they are in? My grandfather's mother was Arazona Bever/s-I do not know if it is Bever or Bevers. She was the daughter of George Turner BEVER and Mary Esther FREEL(dau of James FREEL and Mary GWINN). Mary Arazona/Zona Bever LEVERICH d 1/27/1961 and is buried in the Moore Cem, Cleveland Co, OK. I had been told that her parents were buried in St Charles Cemetery, Madison Co, IA. My grandmother told me that that was wrong and they were also buried in Moore Cemetery. I also have that her siblings were buried elsewhere.
