BATEMAN BACON EATON FAGER
I would like to find information about my great great grandparents and
their families. I have the following information about them given to me
by relatives. I am also told to look for a book that supposedly has a
wealth of information...my brother says it is a black book about Adair
County. I honestly think he said the name included the words "black
book". Does this sound familiar at all? Here is the information as my
brother gave it to me: Couple came to Indian Territory and settled in
the Chalk Bluff Community of Adair County in 1911 and 1912. He was
known in Stilwell and Adair County as "Uncle Andy". He died 19 Jan
1934. Mary Francis (BACON) BATEMAN died 16 Dec 1924 and is buried in
Stilwell Cemetery. "Uncle Andy" was b. 6 Feb 1853 in Lee Township,
Crawford County, Ark; m. 24 Jul 1873 in Washington County, Ark., d. 19
Jan 1934 in Stilwell, Adair, OK. Bateman Cemetery. Notes: Postmaster
and County Commission. As a young man he was known throughout the
territory as a sprinter. Seldom was he equaled. This brought him
recognition and respect assisting him in becoming successful in the
Griss and Meal Mills, buying and selling lumber and cotton also with a
local grocery store in
Evansville where he met and married Mary Frances BACON. In 1879 he
moved with his five sons and three daughters then opened a grocery
store in the Indian Territory, Cherokee Nation, Stilwell (OK). Had one
of two homes in that town with a sidewalk. There he became the
township's first treasurer because of his strong principles. County
commissioner 1911-1912. Known throughout Adair County as "Uncle Andy".
Had ten children. John Henry BATEMAN m. Mona Olive EATON, Mark BATEMAN
m. Martha, Walter BATEMAN m. Bill

Evansville which has been incorporated into Cedarville School District.

BATEMAN owning a grocery store. Says he was born in Arkansas. Father b.

BROWN CAMPBELL WOODALL
I am trying to find out something about my g-grandfather's ancestors
from Adair County. His name was Frank BROWN b. August 12, 1858, in
Goingsnake District and died March 15, 1943, in Narcissa, OK. He
married Nancy Isabelle CAMPBELL in approx. 1883. In his Dawes
application he states that his Mother's name was Marguerite WOODALL and
his father was William BROWN. He says his Mother was a half breed and
his dad was white. The Dawes Roll lists eight children - George (my
grandfather), Mary M., Tennessee B., Fannie A., Frederick F., Nancy I.,
Robert E.L., and Ruth May. They were born between 1886 and 1904. The
1910 census shows that they had moved to Narcissa, OK by that time.
Does anyone have anything that could be of help finding out about
Marguerite and William BROWN? I am relatively new to genealogy and live
in a very remote area of Wyoming so I don't have a lot of resources
available to me.
I am interested in information concerning the BUNCH family and the town of Bunch in Adair County.

In 1900 my great-grandparents were in Flint Township, Indian Territory.
I checked on a map and that part of Indian Territory is now Adair
County. Their names were Henry & Louella FRYE, their children were
Benton, Mattie, Mary, John. In 1890 Henry was still in Yell County, Ar.
I found an adoption record where he allowed a Robert SPENCER to adopt
his four month old daughter, Essie Ollie FRYE, because his first wife
Fannie had died. In 1909 Henry died adn Louella died in 1912. In 1900
all of Henry's family had left Ar. I believe that Henry and Louella
were married in I.T., however, I've not been able to find a marriage
license for them. Their first child Benton was born in July 1894. I
would really appreicate any help. According to one of my great-aunts,
Essie, the child that was adopted by Robert SPENCER came when Henry
died in 1909, so I know she had to be in the area also.

MORRIS TURNER CALLOWAY
I am researching the MORRIS family which was originally headed by
Gideon Franklin MORRIS and his Cherokee Indian wife, Rebecca. They
lived in Cherokee Co., NC before they migrated to Indian Territory in

was named Evaline TURNER, daughter of Felix TURNER and Fanny CALLOWAY

TURNER was a twin of Meca Caroline TURNER. Evaline and John Calhoun
MORRIS married before 1850 and were living in Cherokee Co., NC when the
census was taken. John and Evaline both are believed to have died about
18651866. Their children moved to Indian Territory with the
grandparents and left many descendants, there, who were on the Guion
Miller Rolls. Would love to make contact with anyone researching this

Rosanna WEST my great, great , great grandmother was born in the
Cherokee Nation East in Tennessee. Place unknown. Her father was Jacob
WEST and her mother was Sallie HARLAN (HARLIN), who was at least 12
Cherokee. Jacob's father was possibly Levi WEST born circa 1732. I have
information obtained from a will that I got from the LDS Family History
Center. Does anyone have a copy of this will? Do you know if Jacob was
indeed one of Levi's children. Who was Levi married to? Will share any
information that you like. Rosanna married W. D. Nelson Rogers, son of
Chief John Rogers, the last chief of the Old Settlers, circa 1842 in
the Cherokee Nation West. Apparently she migrated to the Cherokee
Nation with her parents as part of the pro-treaty, or Old Settlers
movement. She and W. D. Nelson lived in Arkansas part of the CNW, but
later moved to the Oklahoma part of the CNW. Any help on the West
family is greatly appreciated.
