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.
