Ran across your web site while surfing for information on Blackwell
and Kay County this morning and noticed two names of great interest:
Diane McDowell -as Vice president and Shirley Harlan- as Corresponding
Secretary both are cousins that I have not seen for quite a long time
I was searching for information on John Dale of Blackwell who served
in WW II and was involved in the battle of Wake Island.
Can you be of any help about this person??
Small world isn't it!!!! Long time no hear. Hope you're doing ok.
Yes, we both belong to the society. Have for several years.
Know John Dale quite well & have for probably over 30 yrs. He worked
at the Kay Electric all the years Jerry was there. What is it you need
to know abt. him??? He is still kicking & doing well. Just saw him
& Wilma in Wal-Mart abt. a month ago & visited with them.
Let me know what you need & I'll try to help.
As for information on John Dale. What I was most interested in was
his time in the WW II and the infamous battle of Wake Island. It was
as I understand it like the Texas battle "Battle of The Alamo".
If John has an e-mail name please share my e-mail name with him so as
we may get together on the Internet. If not, maybe he can relate any
experiences to you to send on to me.
Talked to John Dale this morning & he does have email & is willing
to correspond with you.
So will send his email to you thru my own personal one.

Looking for all the Darland’s, Almack’s, Robert’s buried in the Mount
Olive Cemetery in Nardin, OK. Can you help me? Are there any free sites
I can go and check. My Grandma/Grandpa and my Great Grandma/Grandpa
are there. Would like the find out if there are other’s there and if
we are related.
According to my Kay Co. Cemetery Book there are 22 Almacks listed in
the Mount OliveCem.
As a result, I must have first names & some kind of either b. or
d. dates before I can help you.
There are 4 Darland's---Amanda, Anna Ella, Lester C. & Vanloo. Evidently
Amanda & Vanloo are married.
Anna Ella & Lester C. are more than likely their children based
on all of their dates. If these are yours, I will give you all the b.&d.
There are 6 Roberts---Amanda Belle, Ethel May, George, George A. Georgie
W. & John Renfrow.
Have all the b.&d. dates for these, if they are yours.
Let me know which ones are yours.
All 4 of the Darland’s are mine.
Lester C & Anna Ella are my grandparents.
Vanloo & Amanda are my great grandparents. That much I do know.
I know we are related to Almacks as my grandma’s maiden name was that.
Where would you start to find whom Anna Ella’s parents were and her
brother and sisters? Do you think the Medford Courthouse. Would a paper
office. All though, they may not have existed in 1900 and before. I’m
also guessing that my great grandma was a Roberts.
Trying to find out the genealogy for my family and to be able to pass
this on down to my children.

Hello, I am trying to obtain copies of Obits on the Hartman, DeBoard,
Willbanks and Busby family. They resided in the Braman, Blackwell &
Ponca City area. Would you be interested in doing some research for
me. I have the dates and names of the papers the obits are located in
Please advise your pricing and if you are interested.
What you are asking depends on how many obits your talking about for
all the families mentioned.
First, I would have to have the exact death date (month, day, year)
in order to go through micro film at the library) and where each are
To do 1 or 2 maybe 3 there would be no charge through the PGS other
than for whatever it costs me at the library.
If you have numerous ones you want, I can do it on my own time, which
you would have to give me plenty of time, depending on how much research
your talking about. Let me know what kind of research your talking about,
if other than obits.
I am asking for Obits. I have the names of the paper the date and the
page and col they appear. I will be happy to pay for your time and copies.
We can break this down however you want. I have sent the DeBoards I
am looking for. At anytime you wish not to continue I will totally understand.
Please send me an address and what I owe and I will send a check.
Thank you so much for your response.

My great grandfather James T. Donaldson, born in Clark Co., KY in 1841, moved to the Braman area in Kay Co., OK about between 1895 and 1900 from Warrensburg, Johnson Co., MO. He worked as a Blacksmith. His wife Armida had died and he put his 4 children in foster homes in MO and disappeared. For years no one knew what had become of him until I discovered him in the 1900 Oklahoma Census, where he claimed to be single. There is a story floating around our family that Grandmother received a letter from Oklahoma in the 1920's in a different language from English and she wondered if it could have been information about her Father. He also applied for a Civil War pension while living in Kay Co. We don't know if he died there or not, but would appreciate any information.
Great Granddaughter of James Donaldson
I've been unable to find your person in any of the cemeteries in Kay Co. So I would assume he must have moved on at some point in time.
However, I checked the marriage records and found a J.T. Donaldson / Mary Jane Russmann took out a marriage license in Kay Co. on 3-4-1901. Book 3 Page 228
Whether this is your person, I have no idea. Should you wish to take a chance on this being him, you can send for a copy of the marriage license to
Kay County Courthouse
Newkirk, OK. 74647
Send your request, required information (names & dates) book & page #, Fee is $1.00, and a SASE.
Thank you for the information. It's probably is him. We know his son William Henry Donaldson married a Nellie Russman. I will be ordering the license. Thanks for the address. I also need to find out about Oklahoma Death Records.
Birth and Death Certificates for Oklahoma began filing in 1908. But mandatory filing was not until 1917. Also, years prior to 1940 are sketchy.
The Search fee for the record is $15. If the record is found, one certified copy will be issued.
If not found, you will be notified by mail and the fee will be retained.
Vital Records Service
Okla. State Dept. of Health
1000 Northeast 10th Room 117
Oklahoma City, Ok. 73117
I don't know whether calling first might be a benefit to you or not. Especially to find out if this fee is still the same. They may be able to give you more details about what they want you to send, information wise.

I am looking for information on my Mother's birth father and any family
that may be located. My mother, Verla Dean, is the daughter of Robert
Earl Duncan and Emma Jane McClung who were married in Newkirk, OK in
1923 and divorced in 1924. My Mother was raised by her mother and her
step-father Levert Ackart also known as Brownie. My Mom would like to
locate any information about her father and his descendants.
I really need more information than you sent.
Birth date & where born. Was he raised in Ok. & Kay Co. as a
child or young man??
There are a lot of Duncan's in this area but without some names, I don't
know who I'm supposed to be looking for.
If he left the Kay Co. area after the divorce, then I would have no
information as to where he went.
If you can give me more help, I'll try again.

Name: Walter J. Duval
Last Residence: 74601 Ponca City, Kay, Oklahoma, United States of America
Born: 1 Aug 1929
Died: 14 Jun 2003
State (Year) SSN issued: Arkansas (Before 1951 )
I would love to see and 'reep the harvest' information it has on Walter
Duval's obituary so as to find out who his family was. My Duval family
lived in Pineville, McDonald, Missouri, and had innumerous family members
into the oil fields in Oklahoma in different scopes of work, not just
I have no idea what the name of the newspapers are there in your Oklahoma,
which is why I'm writing you.
I know too of a Jack Duval who still lives in City: Tulsa County: Tulsa
State: Oklahoma Zip Code: 74145 and because I can't find his SSN printout
like the one above, I have to assume he's still living. This man's father
was Vincil L. Duval b. 12 Jun 1891 d. 25 Jan 1965 Tulsa City, Tulsa,
Oklahoma and mother whose name is Gertrude (who I would love to know
maiden name, but know I'm going to have to wait to find it, she also
in Tulsa, Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Can you help me please?
Please let me know if you receive this attachment ok.
Also, the other names you mentioned that were in Tulsa Co. would have
to be checked out there, as any records I'd have are from Kay Co.
I would suggest you search for Tulsa Co. Ok. & you will probably
find some genealogy sites that have lookups like you did for the Kay
This obit should give you some help, so good luck with your searching.
