Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired county clerk of Texas County Oklahoma. Genealogists used to drive us crazy with their requests. I acquired a great love and respect for old records. When I retired I became one of genealogists, researching all lines of my family and my husband's. I have haunted cemeteries for years. This is the first time I've had a way to share my photos.

I have inherited two scrapbooks dating about 1900. One from Mary Jane Leek Howard. The photos appear to be Leek,, Howard and Doonan. The second from Nancy May Kephart . The photos are probably Williams and Kephart. Most of the photos in both books are unidentified. If you have family photos and can help identify, please contact me.

RE: Lena Rogers Behler
Some folks refer to John Rogers Behler as a James, but I am not sure if that is a Hopeful reference or if they have a reason to call him that. And in the news paper clipping sent to me by Pam Schwartz, they call him Rodger.

But if this is who you are may be referring to, He was born in 1911 and died in 1928, however as far as I know he was not killed in a tornado.

here is the clipping content:

"The Wilmore News, September 14, 1928.


Funeral services for Rodger Behler who died at Alva, Oklahoma, Saturday night of acute appendicitis was held at the Baptist church in Wilmore Monday afternoon. Rev. A. Burrill conducted the funeral. A large number of sorrowing friends and relatives were present and the floral offerings were very beautiful. Rodger, who was just grown into young manhood had just gone home with his father for a visit and it was a shock to his many Wilmore friends when word of his death reached us as he was an unusually large strong boy. Every one knew Rodger and his cheery face will be greatly missed."

the article does not indicate what killed John Rogers Behler, but my mother (Lena was her Aunt and she knew her) said that she thought he died of a a burst apendix.

I will keep digging.

RE: Lena Rogers Behler
I wish findagrave would send me notices when someone leaves me a message, I am sorry that I have not seen this message previously, I just get so involved in what I am doing on Find a Grave other wise, I forget to peek at my contributor pages..

I will check on what I have in my notes, etc. and look for the Behler you asked about. I remember my Mama talking about a bad Tornado when she was VERY little...and how her mama shoved her and a sister into a furrow in a plowed field and then laid over the top of them. Mama told me she could still hear the sounds of the wind even when she was old.

Anyway, I wanted to apologize for being so tardy, but I will look and hope there is something I can share.

RE: Nancy Elder
Linda, as far as I know Nancy's burial location is unknown. She was a daughter of John Conley and Rachel Adkins and a sister to my g-grandmother Sarah Conley. Sorry I couldn't give you a location.

RE: Laura James
Thanks so much! I thought Laura might be buried where most of her family was. Glad she is no longer considered "lost."

RE: Laura B James 46147660
I have updated the memorial of Laura Belle Warren James as best as I could. My dates are slightly different than your dates and the date on the marker. I made a note that the Indiana death index has a different death date than the marker. I tried to locate the marriage record, but could not find it. It would be nice if we had the county where they were married. I hope that you approve of the updates I have made, and I do appreciate the information you have given me.

Best regards,
Bob Hague
