My mother was Gretta (Charlene) Leader Tushka, OK DOB 10/17/38
Her parents were James Charles (JC) Leader Jr 1/2 Indian POB Unknown (Tushka??) DOB Unknown (1918 - 1920??)He was younger than Millie He was also incarcerated for a period of time before his death in the mid 50's.
Mildred (Millie) Sharp Tushka, OK DOB 7/22/16
JC's parents were James Charles Leader SR (full blooded Choctaw) & Margaret (Margurite?) I don't know her last name They had only one other childMarie Leader Caldwell who married Jess Caldwell
Millie's parents were Homer Sharp and Verda Brewer I think Homer was German and was raised in a german settlement along the Deleware.. I don't know if this was the Deleware River or somewhere in Deleware CO OK..
Their other Children were... Jewel Sharp Morgan who married Charlie Morgan Childen were Kenneth Morgan (Killed in 9th grade when hit by a train) Betty Morgan who married a man by the name of Carillo
Robert Sharp who married Louise Grimsley Child Linda Sharp who married Bill Burton
Benton Sharp who married Lucille Grimsley (Louises sister) Children were Jerry Sharp (Died at 17 from a brain tumor) Larry Sharp
The other family memeber I'm aware of is James Leader SR's brother Otis who was supposedly a Code Talker, but I've not found anything to support that.
The Sharps owned a homestead off of W. Boggy Depot Road to the north.It was occupied by a member of the family until last year.
My mother was born in a house on W. Boggy Depot Road that I believe was torn down or burned down within the last 10 years.
The Leaders own a family cemetary plot on the LS Hill property on W. Boggy Depot Road.
I have recently found out that the family history I had always believed is nothing but a huge fabrication.I'd really like to know who my family is and know about them and things they may have done (good or bad).
I'm really interested in finding out about my grandfathers incarceration, and anyone who might of known him.
