SURNAMES: DUNIGAN / JONES / BURCHAM / ST.CLAIR
QUERY: My grandparents were married
in Webb City, Franklin County, ARK August 7, 1904
(marriage book G-319): W. A. DUNIGAN to Leanna
Janes/JONES by the JP. Leanna previous marriage records
in Webb City: Benjamine F. BURCHAM to Miss Leanna ST.
CLAIR November 30, 1893 (marriage book E-207) by minister
of the gospel M. H. Snow.
Two children were born of this marriage: Edna Burcham Aug 13 1894; Homer Burcham Nov 18, 1898. E. M. JONES to Mrs. Leanna Burcham November 19, 1901 (marriage book G26) by minister of the gospel M. H. Snow I believe William Andrew Dunigan and Leanna probably left Webb City with her 2 children of the Burcham marriage shortly after their marriage and ended up in SanBois Township, Haskill County, OK where my mother and her sisters were born (1908-11).
Leanna died there about 1915 giving birth to another daughter. William took the children to Chanute KS to be cared for by their grandmother Amanda. I have a record of the children in school there for a short while and then lost all trace of them until their marriages in Oklahoma.
William died in 1935 in Ft. Smith ARK. (I have the death record.) Are there any church records of Rev. Snow that might provide a trace of my grandparents and their ancestors/siblings? Are there any school records of 1890s that might indicate if Leanna was enrolled in school prior to her marriage at age 16 or was her first born Edna Burcham enrolled in school around 1904.
My mother thought Leanna was born in Waldron, Scott County, ARK but I don't have proof - need a year of birth; possibly 1877. Any help with these ancestors would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: B. P. BRANCH
Don, I was delighted to get your reply. I am searching for information about my father, B. P. Branch. He was born in Texas; but on my birth certificate the City is not shown. When I was born (12-01-1934) , my father was 69 years old (I don't have his actual birth date) and my mother who was his second wife (Blanche Burrow) was 26 years old. My father previously lived in Branch, AR with his first wife, Harriet (I'm not certain of her maiden name - believe it was Hunter or Boydston. My father died June 10, 1935 and is buried by Harriet in a small cemetary in Branch, AR, which is in Franklin County. He died in Charleston, AR even though we lived in Dyer, AR, which is in Crawford County.
B. P. and Harriet had a son, Roland P. Branch, born 1885 and died in Tulsa, Ok, Tulsa County, in 1959. They also had a daughter, named Gertrude Branch Gammill, born 1892, died also in Tulsa in 1966. They had another daughter, which I don't know her name.
Harriet died in 1927. I have been told that the name of the cemetary in Branch, AR is Boydston (not sure of the spelling). I am trying to locate whom I could contact for the records of that cemetary. I haven't given up on my search.
Thanks so much for your quick response. Sincerely,

Looking for any information on HARRIS and MYERS families in Franklin County from 1860-1900. Sophornia Belle HARRIS was born about 1862 somewhere in AR. She married William Simon MYERS about 1884 and they lived in Madison County, AR. Her parents were also born somewhere in AR, their names are unknown. She died between 1910 and 1920. I need her parents' names and her place of birth. Any information would be appreciated. Eddie Davis

Searching for information on a R. L. LANGSTON, lived in Franklin County, AR (near Vesta) in 1880. I believe the R. L. LANGSTON, who is buried in the Hickory Ridge Cemetery in Sebastian County, AR is the same one, since Vesta is close to the county line. According to the tombstone, he was born 26 Dec 1852 and died Nov 1887. I am at a standstill with this line and any information would greatly be appreciated. Thank you.
Subject: Franklin County - ANDERSON/JOHNSON
Yes, two of the most common names available! Mary Johnson b. 1845 in Sweden, d 1/21/1921 in Ozark. Married to Nils D. Anderson, no info. Daughter Sadie Anderson married a Stringfield. Obits, grave stones, marriage record, any information welcome! Thanks!
I was delighted to get your reply. I am searching for information about my father, B. P. Branch. He was born in Texas; but on my birth certificate the City is not shown.
When I was born (12-01-1934) , my father was 69 years old (I don't have his actual birth date) and my mother who was his second wife (Blanche Burrow) was 26 years old.
My father previously lived in Branch, AR with his first wife, Harriet (I'm not certain of her maiden name - believe it was Hunter or Boydston.
My father died June 10, 1935 and is buried by Harriet in a small cemetary in Branch, AR, which is in Franklin County. He died in Charleston, AR even though we lived in Dyer, AR, which is in Crawford County.
B. P. and Harriet had a son, Roland P. Branch, born 1885 and died in Tulsa, Ok, Tulsa County, in 1959. They also had a daughter, named Gertrude Branch Gammill, born 1892, died also in Tulsa in 1966. They had another daughter, which I don't know her name.
Harriet died in 1927.
I have been told that the name of the cemetary in Branch, AR is Boydston (not sure of the spelling). I am trying to locate whom I could contact for the records of that cemetary. I haven't given up on my search.
Thanks so much for your quick response.
Sincerely, Ruth Branch Williams

I'm looking for a DAVIS family residing in Mountain Top, Franklin Co. in 1859. According to family records, my ggg-grandfather John Henry DAVIS (b.circa 1800 in SC) died in 1859 in Mountain Top at the home of his brother.

Hi Fran. My sister is an antique dealer. She purchased an old Bible that contains a treasure of information on a Franklin County Family. I offered her what she paid for the Bible with the intent of finding the family, but she just laughed at me. Having worked my family tree for many years, I know it is very valuable to the descendants of the O'Kane Family, and it would be available to them. Do you have any information on them?
The Bible contains the following: Walter S. O'KANE (spelling ?) born 5 Mar 1833, Connersville, IN (spelling ?) married Ada GAINES, born 27 Jul 1836, McClean Bottoms, Fittsworth Landing, Arkansas River.
