Thank you Lynette! My Grandmother was born before OK was a state. It has really made it difficult. I've even emailed The Checotah Historical Society. They couldn't find anything. Wouldn't they have had to have a coroner or someone like that? So, you think OKC might have something? I'll try anything. Thanks for answering me.

I am new to the group. My grandmother was born in Checota, Okla. in 1899. Her Mother died from complications of the birth. I have been unable to find where my great grandmother was buried or a death certificate.
My Grandmother: Grace Alma Crow. B. 5, April, 1899
My Great Grandmother: Bettie Wimberly Crow b. 1878 d. 5, April 1899
My Great Grandfather: William Minter Crow b. 1879 d. 1953

Any suggestions on finding Bettie? I've contacted the Historical Society and checked all the recorded graveyards.
Thanks, Carole

Hi.  Not sure when my grandfather moved the family to Greer County, but they were in Hays county Texas in 1900 and in Granite, Greer, Oklahoma territory in 1910.  My Dad was born in Granite in 1904.  My family was Jasper Patterson, but other Patterson, Tadlock, Haynes and probably some other names I'm not remembering right now were related and lived in the Granite and Willow areas.  Love to correspond with anyone interested.

Hit a dead end on great grandmother. Im looking for info on Napolean Bonapart Adams and family. They lived in the Leflore Co,OK area late 1800's early 1900's. Special interest in the 1910 Leflore census list Hattie as niece. Who is Hattie's parents? 1920 and 1930 Leflore co,OK census lists James Loyd and wife Hattie (my line) as Native.

Great Great Grandfather came n in the land run in 1893 when they opened the Cherokee Strip. Is there any records for the homestead he applied for?
Comment by Donna Dreyer on July 8, 2010 at 7:29pm
Many applied for delayed birth certificates, which would be on file. Those would probably have been several years after the fact. My father was born in 1917 and applied for a delayed one in the 1940's so he could enter the military during WW II. If they lived to collect Social Security, they would have had to received a delayed certificate.

Census records, newspaper announcements at time of birth are 2 sources.
