Re: Free Ottawa Co. Okla. look Ups
Would you be so kind to check for an obituary/funeral home record for Gypsy (Smith) Morrison who died in Picher in January or February 1920.
On January 25, 1920 a telegram was sent from Picher, Oklahoma to Ruby Darby who was living in Oklahoma City reading ‘Come quick, Gypsy sinking fast.’ Presumably she died of the flu as the local newspapers carried several articles regarding the flu sweeping the country. No one knows if Ruby made it to Gypsy’s side before she died.
I do not have a birth date for Gypsy, but she was approximately25 years of age.I have several photographs of her and am endeavoring to determine when she died.
