WALL – CONLEY
Janice Meredith [email@example.com] August 2008
I am researching the family of Lucien Orlie Wall and Linda Louise “Lula”
Conley. World Connect shows their daughter, Maxine Wall, married William
“Bill” Love in Ponca City, Kay Co., Oklahoma on 18 Feb 1941. I would
like to know if marriage records show this. Also if there is any other
information available on William and Maxine Wall Love. I do know they
were in Sapulpa, Creek Co., Oklahoma by 29 March 1952 since they were
shown at that address when they witnessed the third marriage of her
mother, Linda Louise “Lula” Conley Wall Stowe.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
Kay Co. Marriage records does show a license
application taken out on 2-18-1941 for Maxine Wall and Bill William
I find no other information on them, so they must have moved on to the
other county you mentioned at some point in time. My advice to you would
be to check out Creek Co. in case they stayed there, they may have been
Thank you so very much for checking this for me. I truly appreciate

Would there be someone that might be able to look up and
obituary for me? It would be for my great-grandmother, Jane Morrison
Welsh. She died in (or near) Blackwell 18 Mar 1923. I would be glad to
pay any reasonable research and copy fees and send an SASA if necessary.
I'm not sure how long she resided in Kay County. She went there from
Marion County, Kansas. A couple of her sons had settled in Kay County
during the land run. Sometime after her husband passed away, she must
have moved to the Blackwell area to be near her family. I'm not sure
why she went to Oklahoma when my grandmother and her family were very
near her in Marion County, but that is beyond the reach of this query.
Anyway...the sons that lived in Kay County were Robert, John and Albert.
Thanks for your help in advance.

I'm trying to locate a Melvin A. WEST b. 1892 who was
living in Ponca City, OK in Dec., 1947. He was born in Ohio, and we
think he worked for an oil Company.
Would there be some old City Directories from that time
frame that might list him.
We would like to know if he had a family or not and when and where
Thanks for any info and/or clues you might have.

Do you have access to newspaper obituaries from 1937? Can you
tell me how I can go about requesting a lookup?
I will need to know which newspaper your talking about
and town. I can only help you if it's in Kay Co
PGS charges are $2 +printing for each obit and since I don't live there,
there would also be an added chg. for my trip of $5. If you still
want this done, let me know and give me time to do the look-up.
It would be Ponca City, Kay County – Benjamin Franklin Wilson,
d 28 Jun 1937
Am attaching the obit for Benjamin Wilson from the Ponca City News June
Is a little dark but still readable. News print from way back
when sometimes leave a lot to be desired :)

I was wondering if you could please tell me if one of these Frank Williams'
was the one who died on 10 March 1894? It would be a great help!
Thanks to You,
Williams, Frank Riverview Cemetery

Williams, Frankie J. Newkirk Cemetery
Williams, Franklin J. Longwood Cemetery
No, none of the below names are the ones you
are looking for. They were all born way after 1894.
I did find one Frank Williams that was shot around the date you referred
to but don't find him buried here.
Could this be the man your looking for??? Do you have any other information
that would be of help??
Thank you for your kind reply. The Frank Williams who was shot is my
quarry. I found him listed in several of the old newspapers you have
on the site. It has been a big help and if you get a chance, please
thank Mr. Bishop for me. I've just begun my investigation and have no
further information as to where Frank might be buried. His widow was
living elsewhere at the time of his death and I don't believe he had
any additional family here. Perhaps his grave is unmarked?
I also wish to express my thanks to the PGS for having such a great
site and sharing such helpful information.
Thanks, This is why I did this obituary project.
There was no other way of finding death information on beople whe died
before 1909, especially when there is no cemetery records. Newkirk has
no records of those early days because of the fire that destroyed the
downtown aandf all the funeral homes and the city hall records were
destroyed. If the grave was not marked at the that time, there were
no records of the burial to find the grave again. I know there a lot
I missed, so some could still be there if people know the date. Loyd

Am looking for someone who might have information on the old Newkirk
Cemetery. Both of my paternal great-grandparents are buried there; James
Madison Williams born 4/28/1855 in Madison County, Iowa and died 9/19/1928
at Denoya, Kay County, Oklahoma and Minnie Emmazet (nee Besse) born
10/4/1866 in Appanoose County, Iowa and died 4/5/1931 also at Denoya,
Kay County, Oklahoma. A couple of their children are also buried there,
but it is James & Minnie I am most interested in. Also, their daughter,
Grace Lauver and her husband, Fred (and others of his family) are listed
as being buried there. I came down to Oklahoma last spring looking for
Newkirk cemetery, but was unsuccessful in finding it.
Any and all info or insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.
Newkirk cemetery is located 2
miles north of Newkirk on Hwy 77, then turn right crossing over Santa
Fe railroad track. I believe that there is a old railroad boarding house
located at the track crossing. [Actually it is the next intersection]

Williams Store is about James & Minnie Williams
I am looking for any info. on the James Williams family
which his family know lives in Ryan Ok. He was born in 1860 in Kentucky.
He met and married a Annie McCamey and they had 5 sons . Alexander,
Oscar, William, Johnny, William Henry, The three middle sons were born
in Simon Ok. and that is where James was suppose to have died. But I
have not been able to find any concrete info. on that as of yet. Even
though every thing states he died there. But have not been able to get
papers stating that. I am thinking he might have died around some Arbuckles
Mts. Do you know where I might find out.
