There are two different Cheek families in Greer County.I need help finding a connection between them. The first is Joseph Ransom CHEEK b. 1861 Macon, GA, who married Willamina (Willie) H. CALDER (name maybe O'Calder)b. 1871 IN; children are: Lerry, Nathaniel, Joseph, Catherine, Urial, George H., Gertrude, Felbert, Leona, and Ruth.
The second is Robert Bruce CHEEK b. 1857 Jackson Co. GA, d. 1932 Greer Co. OK, married Carrie Savannah ADAMS b. 1861 DeKalb Co. GA, d. 1936 Greer Co. OK; children are: Joseph Marion (my grandfather), Bertie Columbia, Walter Perryman, Monroe Salathiel, Robert Luther, Annabelle, and Roy Bruce.
I was in Mangum last weekend and found a map that lists the homesteads northeast of Mangum and found R.B. Cheek 1907(assumed to be my greatgrandfather, Robert Bruce Cheek) and J.R. Cheek 1901(assumed to be Joseph Ransom Cheek). The homesteads are only a mile apart and it seems to me there has to be a connection between 2 Cheek families from GA that end up a mile apart in OK. I do not recall anyone in my family ever talking about another Cheek family in Greer County.
Any help solving this Greer County problem will be greatly appreciated.
