I am searching for background information for Katie Mae Rodman Easley, my grandmother. She was married to Thomas Elbert Easley and had 5 living daughters, two died at birth. Her mother was Ida Elizabeth Smith Rodman and her father was Orson Bacon Rodman. That is all I know except for the names of her daughters and their children. I would very much like to know where she came from and meet some current family members. Thanks
I checked marriage records for
early Kay County, Cemetery records and the two history books I have
on the area. I only found one record in the marriage records. It was
Mary Alice Easly (21)b: Tennessee. Her father was Elbert Easly and
mother Regina Willard. On Feb. 13, 1897, she married John W. Ditmars.

I am looking for information about my great-grandmother, Frances La Sarge Edmiston. She was the daughter of Mary Josephine Pappan La Sarge Davis (Kaw City) and Louis La Sarge. My grandmother, Bessie Edmiston Lane (Ponca City) was only 11 years old when she died and had not been permitted to see her after her father, J.C. Edmiston divorced Frances. (They were married in Perry, OT in August, 1900) We have no pictures of her; my grandmother told us that all she could remember from her mother's funeral was her beautiful, long, dark hair. I've been able to establish that she died on February 3, 1914 in Leavenworth, KS at the Evergreen Place Hospital run by Dr. Clarence Case Goddard and is buried in the transplanted Washunga Cemetery near Newkirk along with her infant son, Eugene, but the specifics of her life and death remain a mystery to our immediate family. We suspect that she suffered from epilepsy, which was considered an embarrassing mental illness during the 1800s and early 1900s, perhaps leading to her alienation from the family. I'd appreciate help piecing together this puzzle. Thanks

Will (William D.) ELLIOTT, d 8 Jan 1959 Ponca City, b 8 Dec 1875 Athensville Twp, Greene Co, IL. His father: Frank, mother: Martha HOWARD. His obituary had only 4 children listed: Leslie, Willie, Mrs Merl Ramey (all Newkirk, OK) & Claude of Arkansas City, AR. 6 grandchildren, 4 g-grandchildren.
I'm assuming they are in Newkirk, OK. I found Merl Ramey in SSN death records but I don't have his wife's first name (Will & Bertha's daughter's name?).

1. Other daughter of Will & Bertha & md name.
