I have never knew the given name of my grgrandfather until today.I got a copy of my grandmother's death certificate and it gave me the following information: 1. Mary Meloney Orand Davis - my grandmother 2. Mary's father - Samuel David Orand, born TN 3. Mary's mother - Ludie Farnom, born TX (actually her last name was spelled Farnum.I have pictures of her.
Other information I know and some I think: 1. They lived at Stidham OK and at Wetumka OK 2. Samuel and Ludie were married I believe at Tarrant Co TX 3. Don't know yet where Samuel died. 4. Believe she is buried at Wetumka altho she had moved to Clayton and Sardis OK 5. She remarried a V K Smith 6. Ludie had a brother Eddie Farnam, buried at Wetumka and the info on his death certificate was provided by a Ernest Wickmore. 7.Other names associated with the Farnum's include Wickware, Melton, and Compton. 8. BELIEVE SAMUEL'S FATHER'S NAME TO BE JAMES WILLIAM RALEIGH ORAND.
Please forgive the length of this messages but does any of this information fit anyone else's line?Any help appreciated. Lola
