Marion Lawhon is my ggGrandfather and I am looking for information about his ancestry.
Based on his daughter's birthdate, he was probably born by 1857 or earlier, an event that possibly took place in Minnesota(?), according to my gGrandmother's death certificate.
Marion Lawhon's daughter Eliza Rebecca Lawhon married Sidney R. Fraser on 3 July 1897 in Holdenville, Creek Nation, IT, an area which later became part of the state of Oklahoma.
Marion Lawhon and wife Eliza were probably living in Sparta, Bienville, LA during 1877 when their daughter was born;
Where did Marion Lawhon go when his wife Eliza died giving birth to their daughter?
Did he go to Indian Territory?
I welcome any information about Marion Lawhon and his family. Many thanks.
