I am trying to locate newspaper death notice/obituaries of William Edward Seidel 1862-6/5/1942 and wife Catherine Leseman Seidel 1865-1939 They were residents of Blackwell for many years, although William resided with his daughter in Evanston when he passed. They are both buried in the Blackwell IOOF Cemetery. I would appreciate any info on who I might contact or where I might search for these.

Buried in Blackwell Cemetery
I notice there are about 10 members of the Shupe family buried at Blackwell
There are two Shupes buried at Blackwell Cemetery that I can't place.
As far as the Shupe's they are pretty plentiful.
You are so right about the Shupes being plentiful. Andrew and Judith (Juda) Shupe had 13 children born in North Carolina and Tennessee before they moved to Kay County. Their oldest daughter remained in Tennessee. Their oldest son died young. Their 2nd daughter, Sarah Ann Shupe, died giving birth to Phoebe, who was raised by her grandparents. The remaining 10 children spent part, if not all, of their lives in Kay County.
One of their daughters, Eliza Jane Shupe, is my great-grandmother. Her 1st husband was James William Hamilton, my great-grandfather. They were married 8 Jan 1893 in Arkansas City, Crowley County, Kansas. Her oldest child was born in Arkansas City, but the rest of her children, including my grandmother, were born in Blackwell. After her divorce from James Hamilton, Eliza married John J. Fogle. I don't have a date but it would have been between 1906 and 1909. I was unable to locate them in the 1910 Census but, their son, Arthur, was b. 21 Feb 1910 Was there a marriage application for them?. Mr. Fogle died 24 Jul 1916. Need an obit for him, if possible.
Eliza then married Jeff White. I don't have a date, but she was married to him when her sister, Rhoda Eveline (Shupe) Rennie passed away 24 Aug 1919, according to Rhoda's obit. I located them in the 1920 Kay County Census. Was there a marriage application for them? Did he die or were they divorced? I couldn't locate him in the 1930 Census
Finally, Eliza married William Curtis sometime before her death 21 Mar 1945 in Blackwell. She is buried at Blackwell Cemetery.
Also, Eliza's son, Arthur Ralph Fogle, was b. 21 Feb 1910 in Oklahoma and d. 21 Feb 1945 probably in Oklahoma. Is there an obit for him? Don't know if he's buried in Kay County or not.
Eliza's youngest brother, Arthur Eugene Shupe, b. 14 Apr 1882 and d. 27 Apr 1963 at Newkirk and is buried at Newkirk Cemetery. I need an obit Eliza's youngest sister was Lulu Ethel Shupe. She was born 2 Feb 1884 in Tennessee. Her 1st husband was Frank Davis, whom she was married to when her mother died in 1903.
According to Rhoda Rennie's 1919 obit, she was married to a Mr. King and lived in Des Moines, Iowa. In 1921, she supposedly married Linza Booth. He died in 1923 and she then moved back to Blackwell where she died 14 Dec 1924. Need an obit for her.
I have an obit for Eliza's mother, Judith (Juda) Shupe, who d. 29 Dec 1903, but it is very difficult to read. In her obit, Phoebe Shupe is listed as her niece rather than her granddaughter.
Andrew Shupe who died 13 Jul 1901. If one is available, I'd like to have it.
If you can help with any of the following, I sure would appreciate it.
Marriage Dates Needed
Emily Emma Shupe to Isaac Milton Legard about 1897.
Jeff White, born about 1858 in Texas
Date of Death Needed
Louis J. (Otis) Looney, d. Feb 1968 in Mesa, Arizona, buried in Ponca City IOOF Cemetery.

Thanks for any help you can give. I'll be in touch when I get home.
I found the information on Velma Fogle most interesting. I had no idea
Yes, Eliza Jane Fogle was called Jennie and would be the same Jennie
I'm attaching a copy of Emily Emma Legard's obit or death notice. It
Andrew Jackson Shupe, d. 13 Jul 1901
I realize Andrew Shupe's obit may not have made the paper, but I hope
Jeff White is a puzzle. According to the 1920 Census and Rhoda Rennie's
We know William H. Curtis is buried in Blackwell Cemetery, but there
Since you found a marriage application for Arthur R. Fogle to Lillie
Thanks again for your help.
If you could find a few more obits for me, I would appreciate it. They

I am trying to find some information about my mother,
Ruth E. Sims, who graduated from the Ponca City School of Nursing
in the early 1930's. She married my father, George T. Soulsby, at
the Charles B. Handley home in the early 30's where she had been living
for sometime, I understand that her parents died when she was very
young...and that is where I hit the wall.
The Handley's were butchers, Jack worked for Conoco
for years, their sons own Mertz brothers Iron works in Ponca City,
they were Don and Forest Mertz, Forest is still alive, Jack and Hattie
built a house very close to the Alan Muchmore home.

First, let me apoligize for just getting your
letter today, from Feb. Sometimes it takes a long time for it to get
to where it needs to go & filter down thru different people.
Since I wasn't able to find Albert / Anna buried
in Kay Co. I surmised at some point they left this area.

I am trying to research (as time allows) the Souligny family tree for
my husband, Earl D. Souligny III. As a novice in this area of research,
I am asking for guidance from your organization. Since his family helped
to found Ponca City, I imagine that you will have a lot of information
on the founding fathers. (He has family still living there.)
There is also a room at the Historical Society in Blackwell that is filled with Painting by Alice Souligny whose husband is Earl. I don't believe there is any genealogical information.
"North Central Oklahoma - Rooted in the Past - Growing in the Future" In the Ira and Geneva (Landers) Edwards story, There is mention of a Dorothy May Edwards who married a Earl D Souligny in June 1941, but divorced in 1958. They had 2 children, Earl Douglass and Annabelle Louise and 4 grand children, Laurie Powell, Elizabeth, Ruth and Ben Souligny. This article says that the Souligny family is an old pioneer family. So there is probably more info that could be gathered, if one spent some time researching.
There are Souligney records listed in each of the following sources:
