Per the Social Security Death Index, Cora ESLINGER's last address was Frederick, OK. She died in Nov. 1985 per the information. She could very well be my Grandmother. Through checks at Frederick's Funeral Home and Cemetery, she is not there. If anyone knew her would you please contact me. My best hopes might lie in someone who knew her and 1985 isn't out of the question. Cora was born in 1895, so she'd have been 90 at the time of her death. Strictly interested in the genealogy aspect of her life.

My Grandfather, and Grandmother lived in Frederick, Oklahoma and raised their 4 children there in Frederick. I understand my Mother, Mary Alice YOHE had a nursery school for some of the children there in Frederick, and she met my father, Don W. PENDLETON there. They married in Altus Oklahoma. The YOHEs were Church of Christ and the PENDLETONs were Baptist, so my father told me that he and mother had to go to Altus to get married because none of the ministers in Frederick would do the marriage for them. My Grandfather PENDLETON was a Baptist minister, and my Grandfather YOHE was a deacon in good standing in the Church of Christ. I know quite a lot about the PENDLETON side of my family. However my Mother died when I was only 4yrs old, and although we spent time with my Grandmother YOHE in the summer time when school was out, we never knew much about the YOHE side of the family. Grandfather met Grandmother YOHE in Texas and from there moved to Frederick, where Grandaddy YOHE helped build the grain elevator there in Frederick. I don't know where his family came from or if he had any brothers, sisters, or any other family at all. Thank you so much for your help.

I am hoping to get information about my grandmother (Hulda STOUT), my grandfather (John N STOUT) who were married 1876 in Wynn, AR, and their daughter. After the death of my grandfather, my grandmother moved to Frederick, OK to live with their daughter and her husband. Their names were Robert and Laura FONDREN. This was probably in the 1940s. I never knew any of them and my folks both died before I was three. So you know I need all the help I can get. I would like to know where they are buried and when they died. Some day I would like to visit the place where they are resting and see all that is written on their markers. It would be nice to have a picture of the markers, too.
