Charles Jordan Cheatwood
Furnished by Sandra


I am the great great granddaughter of Charles Jordan Cheatwood and Kathryn Daniels Cheatwood.  C. J. Cheatwood is buried in Dripping Springs Cemetery, Tussy, Oklahoma. Tombstone Photo

Was there a funeral home who buried C. J. Cheatwood in 1899 in Tussy, Oklahoma?
My great grandfather was the son of Charles Jordan "C.J." Cheatwood.  His name was Thomas Clinton Cheatwood who married Belle Speir. On the 1900 Chickasaw Nation Census someone misread Thomas Cheatwood as Lewis Cheatwood. I have informed the clerk's office.  They had a son name Charlie Melvin Cheatwood.  He is my grandfather.  Charlie Melvin Cheatwood married Mattie Iola Goodman, Nov. 29, 1919, Lindsey, Oklahoma.  They had ten children.  My father is their third child.  His name is Charles Clovis Cheatwood.  My name is Sandra Kay Cheatwood Smith.
These Cheatwood families had lived in Oklahoma Indian Territory-1897-1925.  Then they moved to Donley County, Texas. The Mary Lane Speir Family and the Cheatwood Families are in Dallas, Texas area, Borger, Texas area, Joplin, Missouri, Sheridan, California and other towns and states. Some Speir family members are in Walter Co. Oklahoma--maybe Cotton County, Oklahoma--I have totally forgotten the name, I guess.
They have lived in Garvin County, Oklahoma, the city of Foster, Oklahoma, Lindsey, and Purcell, Oklahoma, Elmore City, Oklahoma, Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Oklahoma, McClain County, Oklahoma.  Some Cheatwoods are kin somewhere down the line and they currently live in Pottawattomie, Maud, Oklahoma.
Is there a way you can help me find C.J. Cheatwood's funeral information and tombstone photo?  Also, his daughter-in-law (My great grandmother Belle Speir Cheatwood-born Feb. 1877 Missouri-died 1907 or 1908 in Oklahoma--Thomas Clinton "T.C." Cheatwood- was her husband) may be buried some where /near C. J. Cheatwood--maybe some unmarked graves--We just do not know.  The state of Oklahoma has no other record on Belle Speir Cheatwood except the 1900 Chickasaw Nation Census.
I do have a photo of her 1907 in Oklahoma.  She must have died shortly after the photo was taken of the Cheatwood-Speir Reunion-Oklahoma.
