MAHAFFEY

A John MOHOFEY is listed in Kingfisher County and I am wondering if he is John MAHAFFEY.  John might be the father of Jcob MAHAFFEY who was my g-grandfather.
    J.W. was supposed to have been born in Ms. or Ala. in 1858. Possibly Okla. or Indian Territory. His grandfather and father were possibly: William and John Mahaffey. Wm. being from Tennessee. Wm. said to have gone to Okla. with Holden Ward and Indians as a butcher. Either Wm. or John may have married Indian woman named E.S. White. Mahaffeys from then on supposedly Choctaw. J.W. married Missouri Elizabeth (Lizzie) Loftin/on from Ms. My grandmother was their daughter (Eva MAHAFFEY Hamilton). J.W. had numerous children whose names I have. J.W.'s children were born in Ms., Tx., and Okla. or IT. He died at Yeager,Okla. in 1909. Jacob W. should have been 1/2 Choctaw-maybe Cherokee, too. His siblings were: Alcy ; Lizzie ; Nan ; Alex ; Vernard ; Emmet ; Ann . I would appreciate hearing from you even if we don't have an obvious connection--for future reference. Thank you. Ramona H.

GILL

My ggrandfather Alexander Paton GILL was born in 1841 in Belmont Co., OH married Victoria SPELMAN of Franklin Co. OH have children and moved to Warren Co., IA before the 1870 census.  His wife died and he remarried my ggrandmother Cora Ella WOOD and had children. Their last child born was my grandmother Cora Ella GILL who was born 24 April 1886.
Alexander married Mary Sophia ELLENWOOD and had daughter Blanche Irene 6 Dec. 1890.  Alexander died in 1899, Mary Sophia in 1896.  Both died and are buried in Loyal, Kingfisher Co., OK.
Alexander filed on 160 acres on Oct. 23, 1894 Sec. 4 Twp 17 Rg 9.  He got the land from a James F. GILL who filed May 7, 1892.  The Loyal Cemetery is in Sec 1 of Twp 17, Rg 9 and may be where they are buried.  The Federal Tract Book states he filed for Final Certificate on Dec. 14, 1901 which may have been accomplished after his death by a relative.  There must have been other GILLs who settled there as there is a George A. GILL, Frank GILL, James F. along with Alexander.
Would it be possible for you to get copies of any information regarding Alexander Patton GILL?  I would greatly appreciate your help.  Also, since he died in Kingfisher  Co., his will would have probably been probated.

WINGLER / DANCY

I am looking for informatin on my great-great-grandfather James M. (DANCY) WINGLER. I am told he was born out of wedlock (1847) and his father's name was WINGLER. His mother married a DANCY and he took his name. Upon the death of his real father (WINGLER) he inherited some land in Kingfisher, OK and he moved to OK to claim it.( somewhere between 1903-1907) . I also heard that this land was sold back to the reservation, whatever that may tell you.   I am trying to find the identity of this WINGLER and  haven't had much luck.

HIBBS / WEST

Hello, I would appreciate any information on Goldie HIBBS and Daisey WEST, both living in Altona in 1968, when their brother, George Branham died in Tulsa.  Would anyone have access to "Pioneers of Kingfisher County 1889-1976 by the Kingfisher County Historical Society pub. 1976" to see if they were mentioned?  Is there any list of Altona cemeteries?

ROBERTSON / GERREN

Hi, we are trying to find my husband's ancestors who went to Kingfisher County in the late 1890s and early 1900s.  I know his grandfather was there in 1901 and a few of his aunts went to Kingfisher.  The surnames I am trying to reasearch are ROBERTSON  and GERREN. If you have any knowledge of these two names I would appreciate anything you have.  His great grandfather was Wm. ROBERTSON. His grandfather was  John W. GERREN.  The names of his two aunts that were born there were Della GERREN and Alma/Elma GERREN.  They were in Kingfisher in the early 1900s. Julie Gerren
