I have been doing research on the Waits family for about 5 years now and I have accumulated quite a bit of info on them. Most of it is from the 1800's and 1900's out of Illinois,Texas,Arkansas,Oklahoma and Missouri,but I do have some info from other time periods and places.I would like to help anyone looking for information on the Waits family,maybe helping others will help me to find a link to one of the documented families.I have been stuck for quite some time on my great-grandmother AnnaBelle Waits born ca 1871 in Ark.,and her brother William Henry Waits born 1880 ,Bentonville Ark.Any help would be great!
But in the meantime: I found a Milton C.Waits born 5/22/1847 Tenn.died 1919 Durant,OK.(Silo) he married Mary Nichols born 1849 TN. died 1935 in Durant,Bryan Co.OK.Their issue was AnnaBelle Waits,she married Adkirson E.Cates in Bee,OK. Mary Nichols, Waits remarried Harry Austin after Milton's death.I have 3 differing sets of parents for Mary Nichols,if you need them ,contact me and I will post them. Peggy
