|I am researching the MCKASKLE family from the South East, Arkansas and Oklahoma.The earliest known ancestor is WILLIAM FRANKLIN MCKASKLE.He was born in North Carolina in 1845 and died in Ada, Oklahoma in 1927.He married Delia Lilus Summers in Alabama.She was born in 1846 and died in 1936.They had five children: John Gordon McKaskle (my Great Grandfather), A.C. McKaskle, D.S. McKaskle, William Henry McKaskle, and Cornelius Summers McKaskle.|
I believe William and Delia moved from Alabama to Arkansas before finally settling in Ada, Oklahoma.As far as we can tell, he was a blacksmith by trade, and we have an old photo of him in front of his shop, but we do not know the location where it was taken.
William Franklin's father may have been named MURDOCH, but I am not sure on that.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
