Scott, I am looking for NELSON family members who were in or near Iona.You being a "local", my question to you is this, What is the name/names of the funeral homes in or due east of Iona?How far east?To the county line?
My NELSONs were recorded in the 1900 Indian Territory Census for the Chickasaw Nation in Township 2 NorthRange 3 East.We are trying to pinpoint the grave/death information of one Thomas Benton Nelson aka Tom Nelson aka T.B. Nelson.I have read every cemetery list that is online, to no avail.My fear is that he is in one of those unmarked or unidentified graves...However, the possibility exists that a funeral home would have a record even if the cemetery grave did not get marked...
Do you recall anyone refering to a location known as "Wild Creek" in that area?
Does your community have any "historians" or "old ones" who would have recollections of the early 1900's?Town newspaper?Anything?
