The Dennis Koch Family Home PageUpdated September 5, 2000
|I am researching the family names of Koch and Watkins from the Oklahoma area a branch of the family later moved on to California and Arizonia. The Koch family came to Oklahoma for the land run of 1889. |
And the family names of Berry, Sanderford and Weeks from the Mississippi area. John Berry (b.1869) was married to Betty Elizabeth Sanderford (b.1876). They lived in the Jackson area of Mississippi. Their children's names were Archie Leroy, Gladys, and Eugene.
Also the names of Leonard, Kennedy, and Chapman that lived in Ohio and Indiana. William Henry Leonard moved to Mississippi and purchased land there in the early 1900's. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Chapman December 24, 1881, in Indiana. Their children's names were Dessie, Ora Ethel, Benjamin Ola, Flossie, May, Tom, Nettie, Fannie, and Ellis. Mary Elizabeth Chapman was a niece (or great niece)of John Chapman (aka. Johnny Appleseed).
I have just begun my research, and would appreciate any help you will give me. I would also be willing to share any information I may have that would add to your research.
