Alma/Elma GERREN. They were in Kingfisher in the early 1900s.
Seeking information about Dwight DOTY who settled a quarter section of land northwest of Kingfisher in April of 1892. He lived there 5 years to prove his claim. He married a woman by the name of Ada CECELIUS. He died 11/8/1923 or 33. I don't know which. I would like to know his parents, and siblings and where they came from if at all possible.
Frank DOORLY married Francis Helen MCCORMICK. She was born 1855 in Muncie,Indiana. Parents: William H.H.MCCORMICK and Emma LEONARD. Also looking for Emma's sisters Rozelle and Ida LEONARD. Any info appreciated.

I am looking for JOHN C.BASS who lived in Kingfisher and Dover in the mid to late 1800's and also in 1919 to 1940. James D., Dink and Moses BASS could be his brothers. He also knew a HATCH that lived in Dover. John's wife's name was Josie WILLIAMS. Any information would help.
