I am looking for info on my great-grandfather Arthur Scofield. Here is the info that I have:
On the 1930 census, it says that he was born in Illinois.He was listed as a mixed blood.It said that his father was a mixed blood and that his mother was Choctaw Indian.He was born in 1889.He was living in Fort Towson, Oklahoma as of 1930. He was married to my great-grandmother Agnes (Mitchell) Scofield. The family story is that he grew up in an orphanage.I think that it might have been in the Goodland Academy in Goodland, Oklahoma.He left the family when my grandmother, Christine, was 4 (around 1934) and was never heard from again. My hunch is that he headed off the California.According to the census, he was married before he married my great-grandmother.
