HIRAM HALL

I always believed my grandfather, Hiram HALL was from Texas, but could never locate any records with his name on it in Texas. He had five children. Some of their birth records stated their fathers birth place as being Texas, some said Oklahoma. I have never found his name on a census record, and believe me, I have searched. Recently I found an old letter from an uncle stating his dad was from Coal, OK. One problem though, he spelled it wrong. He spelled it Cole. I don't find a Cole, OK on my map, so I figure he meant Coal. My grandmother, Icey Dora Gunter was from Hugo, Ok. and they married in Lamar County, Texas in 1913. Also, Hiram and one of Icey's brothers (possibly John Gunter) ran around with the indians in the area and even claimed to have indian blood in him. If anyone knows of any Halls in Coal in the early 1900's, please let me know. Thank you Bette Nevarez:

She died in 1926 in Texas, and was born about 1900. Her father's name was Peter Green, who was a doctor or dentist. I have no other information on the Green family, other than the fact that Oma Green King was living in Coal County in 1918 -1920. My father's older sister, Emma King, was also born in Coal County in 1918. Do you have any information on Oma Green King or her family? I do know she had a number of brothers and sisters, some of them named Lely, Bede, Stella, Dolly and Minnie. The family has a tradition that she was half Cherokee.
