Jeri Wofford Forbis My great grand father and great grand mother lived there and were married there in Haileyville back in Jan 23, 1907. Albert Lee Little & Bertie L Abbott. They had my grandfather Jerome Aaron Little there in June 22, 1914. They gave him and a sister up to supposibly an orphanage, but no knows for sure. An Aunt from California went and got them and raised them, Albert & Bertie divorced at some point. Some say Bertie worked at or was in an insane hospital in Tulsa and that she died there, but I have not found anything yet. I'm looking for info on her because I want to know why they did not raise my grandfather (he would never say a word about any of it). Albert worked at one of the railroads (still looking for that), and Bertie remarried twice more, Stroup and Phillips. Relatives; Earl and Ruby Offutt in Tulsa I think cared for her before she died (don't know the date yet). My grandfather said he never had a birth certificate, so I can't imagine my great grandfather has one from Pittsburg County. Thanks for asking, I love doing this research when I get the time Albert Lee Little 1907 Bertie L Abbott Jerome Aaron Little
