I am looking for the obituary for Grace O Keller. She was born in 12 November 1893, in Kansas and her last known address was in Blackwell, Kay County, Oklahoma. She died on February 25, 1989. I have looked on the inter-net and have been unable to fine the obituaries for Kay County for the year 1989.
I am hoping that you have access to these obituaries. I am therefore enclosing $5.00 and a self-addressed stamped envelope, and was hoping that someone there could look up this obituary and send me a copy. Also if you have any other information on this family, I would appreciate copies of that also. If I haven't enclosed enough money, please let me know. Thank you,
Kathryn C Marsh

I am trying very hard to find a death date and/or burial place for Jacob Casper Kemp. Jacob Kemp was noted as being from Blackwell Oklahoma in his brother Ollie Kemp's obituary from July of 1906 as having attended his funeral in Weir, Kansas. Info from the July 6, 1906 issue of the Weir City Journal.
Jacob Kemp was born July 21, 1858 in Albany New York. He married Ida Mae Welker.
Jacob Kemp is incorrectly listed as Jacob Kump in the 1900 Kay County, OK Longwood twp census. (Heritage Quest)
Jacob Kemp's wife Ida M. Kemp, is listed as being widowed, age 50, in the 1910 Smith Co. Kansas, Oak twp, census. (Heritage Quest)
My conclusion from these two census records and his brother's obit is that Jacob died between 1906 and 1910 and is most likely buried either in Kay County, Oklahoma or possibly in Smith County, Kansas. Depends on if the family moved to Smith County Kansas before or after Jacob died.
Are you aware of a book titled Tombstone Inscriptions
of Kay County Oklahoma and do you have access to one? If you could look in this book
for Jacob Kemp I would be most grateful. Perhaps you have other death
and/or burial/cemetery/funeral home records for Kay County that you
might be able to find information regarding Jacob.
No Information Found.

Just last week I was in Newkirk, OK. along with my husband and my mother, we went to the Newkirk Cemetery to see my g.grandmother Delilah J. Kester 1866-1935 Order of Eastern Star grave which we did but the most interesting circumstance came about, I had a copy of the Cemetery Inscriptions of Kay County, OK. by the Pioneer Genealogical Society, Ponca City, OK. it listed my g.grandfather Stephen Kester, May 14, 1868-May 27, 1941, agd 73 yr. 13 da. so SOMEONE saw that stone when they canvassed the cemetery, but there is NO STONE there, I asked the funeral home there in Newkirk, they suggested that the stone might have been misplaced, so my entourage walked the entire cemetery to no avail. I went there to put a stone on his grave, but now I am interested to what happened to the original stone-I did check the courthouse and they were both listed as owning the gravesites. I would appreciate any information related to the above or any info about Delilah and/or Stephen. Thank you.

I would love to have any information on my biological maternal grandfather, Ernest Kohler and/or of his family members. My mother, Patsy Ruth, was born to Ernest Kohler and my grandmother, Ruth Morrison Overton July 11, 1928, in Ponca City. My grandmother, I believe was born around 1908 - 1910. I'm assuming Ernest was somewhere near her age, but I don't know exactly. I do know he died young - about 35. I assume, but don't know for sure, that he and my grandmother were married.
Any information about my grandmother's Oklahoma family would be welcomed also. As I mentioned, her name was Ruth Morrison Overton. I know her mother's married name was Minnie Pearl Overton, and am assuming her maiden name was Morrison. I only knew of my great grandfather (Overton) as being called "Daddy Bob", but don't know his first name. I know they had a farm in/around Ponca City. I guess they would have been born sometime between 1870 and 1890
