I just happened upon your wonderful website while looking for information
on some relatives of mine, and I was so pleased with what I found.
I was able to get obituaries that I needed for two of my cousins,
John and Sarah Tate, that were very helpful in organizing my research.
I was wondering, though, would there happen to be an index somewhere
covering Kay County marriages? I think I have their daughters with
the right husbands, but I'm not entirely sure. Would there be something
that would give information on who Harriett, Bertha and Lillian married?
This is from the Kay Co. marriage listings. The
date is when they applied for license.
Harriett (Hattie) Tate / G.P. Glover 3-14-1901
Bertha E. Tate / Howard E. Davis 9-18-1905
Lillian Tate / Walter Siebert 5-27-1907
Hope this will help you more. Thanks for the compliments on the PGS
website. It is being updated regularly to hopefully give more people
like you help with finding their ancestors.
And yes, the information really was a big help. I'm working on my family
tree, and we didn't have any idea until recently about the Tates that
went out to Oklahoma, so every bit I can find really helps.
You know, I got curious, & was checking my
Kay Co. cemetery book and found John & Sarah listed in the Blackwell
Cem. and also someone named Lenora Tate. By the dates of hers I wondered
if she could be a daughter. Her dates are Sep 4 1868 Sep 25 1953.
Then I checked the obits you'd found and listed on each of them was
a Nora Tate. So am sure this is the same person & she is buried
in Blackwell Cem also.
Just a little something else you can add to your information.
Yes, she was their oldest child according to the records that I have
for them. And thank you so much for checking the cemetery book for me.
I didn't know that her full name was Lenora. I had only found her listed
as Nora from census entries and the obituaries you found. Are there
any more resources at the society that might be of any help, possibly?
John had a nephew, John Brooks, the son of his older sister Mary, that
was in Kay County in the early 1900s too Chandra
