I am new to the genealogy forum. I have been searching all summer for my "roots" and have run into a brick wall! Please help me get information on my heritage. This is what I have learned so far...
My father, LLOYD ELWOOD TOOTLE, b.12/13/1935 in Shawnee, Pottawatomie Co., OK. The son of MILTON ELWOOD TOOTLE, b.08/06/1911 in Shawnee, Pottawatomie, OK and MYRTLE EDNA NEAL, b.08/23/1908 in OK.
Milton E. was the son of THOMAS EDGAR TOOTLE, b.10/04/1891 in OK and HATTIE MAE LANE, b.01/12/1891 in AR. Thomas Edgar and Hattie Mae were m.08/20/1908 in OK.
Thomas Edgar was the son of THOMAS TOOTLE, b.10/23/1858 in OH and HELEN LANTZ, b.02/15/1858 in PA. They were m.12/24/1875 in KS. (I am confused on Thomas' birth year. One source lists him as being born 10/23/1849 and no location. However, lists him as died or buried on 01/27/1916 in the Blackburn Chapel, Section N-R9-13,Pottawatomie, OK.)
My father Lloyd E. Tootle, said he was named after an uncle. But I cannot find another Lloyd Tootle. Also, cannot get any further information on parents/siblings of my maternal side (i.e. LANE, LANTZ, and NEAL). I know that my Grandmother Myrtle was married prior to Grandpa Milton and brought two children to the marriage: Jack and Betty.
Please email me at email@example.com if you have any information for me. Thank you.
