I'm looking for the grandchildren of J.William Allison and Virgie Allona "Loney" Orcutt.
J.William Allison's father, Anderson B. Allison, was my great uncle. J.William was an only child and at the time of his death (see below) his children were: Samuel Bryant age 8, Oletha "Virgie" age 6, and Mildred A. age 2. Anderson B. Allison had 7 siblings and I have photos of 4 of them. I'm hoping to connect with any of Samuel, Oletha, and Mildred's children to see if anyone might have photos of J.William Allison and Virgie Allona "Loney" Orcutt and/or Anderson B. Allison and Alcy Laws (J. William Allison's parents). I'm willing to share all my photos and family info.
Below is J.William Allison's obit. Jane Fee
Here is their son's obit:

FORMER ONTARIAN IS SPANISH FLU VICTIM.
W. J. Allison Dies at Old Home in Oklahoma— Just a week after he had arrived from Ontario for a visit with his parents at Broken Bow, Oklahoma, W. J. Allison, formerly night marshal and well known here, died of Spanish Influenza last Monday.
When he left here with his wife and three children Mr. Allison was the picture of health, in fact his robust 230 pounds proved one of the elements aiding the dreaded disease. Word of his death was conveyed to Mrs. Allison’s brother, Elmer Orcutt, on the heels of a letter telling of his slight sickness.
Mr. Allison was a native of Oklahoma but for the past ten years had lived in Ontario and Vale, serving as night marshal there and as deputy sheriff. He had a host of friends in this section to whom news of his sudden death was a d istinct shock. He was 32 years old and leaves his wife and three children; his aged father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Allison of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
