Albert M. Franco Hi! Genealogy. My 2nd Great Grandpa, Willis Presley Banks, married his first wife in Wilburton in 1898. Then they had their first child in Carbon in about 1900. I'm told that she is buried at Carbon Cemetery. I think a baby of theirs is also buried there.
Shelton family members have been near Quinton (mostly Kinta and Tcker Knob, I think, since at least 1920 (I found a Haskell County census), and my Grandpa's grandma--Nancy Melinda Burgess Shelton--was buried in Quinton in 1939.
Grandpa was born near Kinta (Haskell) in January 1929.
So, that's Shelton, Burgess, Banks and Law.
Willis Presley Banks married his second wife, Mary Jane Law--widow of Mr. Whitlow--in McAlester in 1914.
She had filed for a marriage record a few years before that with a Mr. Luca, but they never married.
Also, Mary Jane's dad--Civil War veteran William Matson Law--had to list residence locations on a Civil War pension document, and listed his home as McAlester in 1912.
Willis Presley Banks worked in the mines. He died in Schulter.
