WOOD

My Virgil Wood moved to Kay Co, OK from Hempstead Co, AR sometime after the 1880 census. He and his wife are buried in the IOOF Cemetery in Blackwell, so I'm sure they never left Kay County once they had moved there.

I would dearly LOVE to have information from census records on their family, especially the 1900 census, since it may include names of children of which I'm unaware. If anyone on this list has access to the census records and could help me with this, I'd be most appreciative. I live in Mobile, AL, and we have no records at all for Oklahoma.

BERGEN / HUNT

My grandfather Ernest Hunt, AKA Ernest Bergen, ran away in MO by age 15 and was living and working in Blackwell OK in 1918 and possibly a little sooner. As he did so many occupations, I'm not sure just what his livlihood would have been at that point. He claimed to have worked as a cowboy at some point and this was most likely the time and place. Interested in what specific opportunities there were for a 15 year old boy in Blackwell area, names of ranches and some background info, also wonder if there was directory listing, or other record he may be listed on under either of his last names.

Appreciate any input,

BAILEY / MORLAND

Leo W. BAILEY (b: approximately 1908-1912 in OK), m: Mabel Iva MORLAND Dec 18, 1929 in Newkirk, OK. Leo had a brother named Grover and his father's name was William. Leo and Mabel both lived in Tonkawa, OK at the time of marriage. Mabel was the daughter of Frank Clark MORLAND.

Their son, Robert Eugene BAILEY, was b. October 24, 1929 in Billings (NOBLE COUNTY) OK. Robert was my father-in-law. He died in 1984 in Tulsa, OK.

Sources of above dates and places come from Robert's birth certificate and the marriage license of Leo and Mabel. Robert's birth certificate lists Leo's place of birth as OK. It also lists Leo's age as 20 on his last birthday and his occupation as farmer living in the township of Glen Rose on Robert's date of birth.

Also searching for info on a William BAILEY b: Sept 24, 1883 in MO, d: Oct 11, 1958 in Blackwell, Kay CO, OK. Father: Joe O. Bailey; Mother: Sarah Myers. Last known residence: 1003 W Lincoln, Blackwell, OK. Spouse: Iva Pearl Bailey.

Funeral records indicated WILLIAM was a retired farmer from the Billings, OK area. Proceeded in death by 4 children. Sons: Grover of Carson City, CO, James of KS and Archie of Tonkawa, Kay CO., OK. Sisters: Corda Pruiett and Maude Gilbert. Brothers: Joe of Denver, Walter and Otis (possibly a Quinton too) of Clinton, MO

I am desperately trying to prove whether or not this William is the father of Leo listed above. If it is, I've made a major break-through in my research.

I am looking for any BROWN families in the Kay County, Oklahoma area who are related to a Curtis BROWN who was born between 1904-1906 in Kingman, Kingman Co., Kansas. All I know is that he died I think sometime in the 1970' really don't know for sure when he died. I do know he died in Prescott, AZ. I found this out from his nephew Marvin BROWN of Woodward,OK.

Curtis BROWN was my grandmother's brother and I'm trying to find out about the elusive BROWN family. His other siblings were: Frank (b.July 19, 1895), my g-mother Cora Ethel (b.Sept. 16, 1897), Carrie (b.April 1, 1899), Charles (b. April 21, 1902), Fred, Ted J.(b. April 12, 1903) and Mary Opal (b.July 5, 1907). They were all born in Kingman, Kansas.

Other Browns in this family are: William Henry, George Grant, Irene, and Bernice. William Henry was my gg-gfather. His parents were John Jacob and Serena or Serelda (Cook) BROWN. The main BROWN in this county was Fred BROWN who married a Katy GIESWEIN. Fred died in Ponca City, OK in abt. 1930 is what I was told. Fred was my grandmother's brother.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, as this is my brick wall now.

He divided it amongst his children, and only Frank went to Oklahoma. I am trying to find the deed to land and the ancestors and descendants of this family.

I have not been able to find Frank in Indian rolls, but my sister said she saw it in the Dallas library about 30 years ago. Of course, she doesn't remember now what record or book she looked at. She said his name was on the roll listed in the 1930's? Anyway, I know Robert was born in Texas in 1890 and Frank was born in 1913 or so and went to Blackwell, Oklahoma in the 30's. He is dead now, and I thought if I looked in OK for land record, I might find info. Thanks

PIERCE
8/19/98

My great grandparents lived for a time (1900-1910's) in Ponca City. Their names were Frank L. PIERCE and Rosetta Mae Ronk PIERCE. They had two children while living there. They were Edith Viola (born April 1900) and Hazel Celia (born Aug. 12, 1902). This family moved on to Avery, Oklahoma. I am having trouble finding the first name of Frank 's father. I would be someone's friend for life if they could go to the Kay County Court House and look up Edith and Hazel's birth records. I would certainly pay for the records and your time. Love to talk to anyone also looking for the PIERCE name.

Help! I have been unable to locate much information about Albert Robert BORDERS, born Jan 1 1870 in Arkansas or Kentucky. Family legend has it that he was a U.S. marshall in Blackwell, Kay County, Oklahoma around 1900. He married Della Ann LIDDELL, born in Clay County, Indiana.

Does anyone know who I would contact for these records?

NUTTER , Lloyd
11/4/96

Looking for any information on a Lloyd O. Nutter from Blackwell, OK who died in 1985. I am actually tracing genealogy on his wife's side (although I don't know her first name yet or her whereabouts). She is the sister to a George Palmer from Eunice, LA who passed away in 1973(?).

George's obituary listed Mrs. Lloyd O. Nutter from Blackwell, OK, so that is my only lead. I would like to find relatives of these Nutters so that I can trace the Palmer side and whereabouts of any living relatives of them. We know George had one son, Coburn Dale Palmer (now around 50 years old or so) but don't know his whereabouts either. We thought if the Lloyd O. Nutter's had any children, they would be "Dale"s cousins and might be able to offer family/genealogy information.

Thank you in advance for your kind assistance and for any information you may be able to offer.

My sister and I are trying to get at much info as possible together before Christmas (as it will be a gift for my nephew).
