About Our Family Research

I do not have much information at this time to share, William Franklin Maxfield "Frank" was my grandfather. I have been told he was from Irish ancestry,he was born in 1858, came to Oklahoma in late 1890,s early 1900,s from Wisconsin. He owned a farm in Woodward Co. Ok. He also own a freight co. He also produced and sold moonshine whiskey. He married Sarah McKenna between 1917&1922. My father Leo Franklin was born Sept. 24,1922. Frank was arested several times in the next three years for making and selling whiskey in Woodward Co.Ok. Sarah divorced Frank and move to Garfield Co.and then to Reno Co. Ks. She married Raymond L. "Jack" Strawn and lived in Hutchinson Ks until she died. After being released from jail Frank returned to Woodward Ok where he died in 1944. Most of this story has been past down over the years. I have just set out to find out what is fact and what is fiction.
