BEAVER, Ather Troy (Red)
I'm trying to find ancestor's of my husband. Looking for Ather
Troy BEAVER known as (RED). He lived in Murray County on and off
for years. Born in Wilburton, OK on 24 May 1920, died 17 October
1990 and is buried at the Drake-Nebo cemetary. He married Estelle
Ruth Williams from Drake valley on 28 June 1941 in Sulphur. First
son Troy James was born in Sulphur on 7
February 1942. Ather's father was Claud James BEAVER, b ? in
Mena, AR. Died approx. 1931-32. His mother was Ada Bell THORNTON,
I have no information on her, other than she may have been born in Talahina,
OK. We know she remarried after Claud died, but again no information
is known about him, even his name. Any information would be appreciated
history has been lost as far as we know. Posted: 01 Jul. 1997,

CLARK, A. Frank
Andrew Franklin Clark, known most likely as Frank, was living in Sulpher,
OK in 1910 when his mother died. I have seen his name as Franklin
Andrew also, but the war pension records for his father state Andrw Franklin
Clark. Dr. I.N. Leyda, uncle to Mr. Clark, is also listed in the obituary
as living in Sulpher. According to the Leyda Family, Mr. Clark
had two children, Erma and Van
who apparently are born before 1910. Mr. Clark's wife is unknown so
I figure she is an Oklahoma girl.
I also do not know when Mr. Clark and Dr. Leyda moved
from Washington County, PA to Sulpher, Murray County, OK. My library does
not have the census for OK so I have not looked at the 1900 census to see
if they are listed. Any information would be appreciated

COKER, Wm. J.
My husband's great grandfather, William Jackson Coker died 1 Oct 1918
in Nebo and is buried in Drake, Murray Co. OK. I have written for
his death certificate from the state but they don't have one. So,
I was wondering if there were any newspapers around the time of his death
which would include obituaries. Could you tell me which newspapers
would have covered that area and where I could find them now.

Harriet Austin. I would be interested in ANY information about
her: address, occupation (I think she ran a store in Sulphur), dates
she was in Murray County, marriages there (if any), etc., etc.
