Emma Bradford (middle name) Okelley b. 1882 in Clay Co. and Lil York.  This picture was my G-Grandmother Emma's.  Lil York was her best friend since childhood.  They lived in the Corning/Moark area.  It must have been taken around the early 1930s in Arkansas.  Emma's mother was a Bradford that was Choctaw and Cherokee blood.

This picture was found in Emma's things and is said to be her baby brother-Paul Eugene Okelley, taken around 1886 in Clay Co.  Paul was taken away by his father (unknown Okelley) and was never heard from again.
