Oklahoma County (OK) Clerk Records and Bertha Mariam White Burlison Gardner

Oklahoma County (OK) Clerk Records

I am amazed at what is available online today.  Documents I would have never thought to look for 10 years ago are now readily accessible online.  In my Burlison Project, I was seeking to know more about Bertha Mariam White Burlison Gardner. I knew she lived in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma much of her life. I did a Google search for: Oklahoma County Clerk.  I then found they have a searchable database of documents in their “ROAM” system. I searched for Bertha Burlison and found three documents.  The first one was warranty deed where she bought her house on Angel Drive in 1974. Later in 1974, there was an antenuptial agreement between Bertha and Jack Gardner wherein they agreed they would keep any property they have before the marriage as individuals, particularly citing Bertha’s home.  I found it very interesting to note that the notary for the document was Bertha’s son, Larry.  Apparently, they wanted to make sure that Bertha kept the house in the event that Bertha and Jack’s marriage didn’t work out.  Apparently, that concern didn’t last long.  Only six years later (1980) a warranty deed was signed by Bertha wherein she sold ½ of the property to Jack making him a joint tenant and giving him full survivorship rights to the property.

Besides learning a little about the family dynamics, I also learned that Bertha and Jack were married sometime after 17 Jun 1974 and before 10 Dec 1980, probably close to June 1974.

Bertha Mariam White was born on 2 April 1926, the sixth of eleven children of Eugene W. and Ruthie Lee (Dodd) White in Blanchard, McClain County Oklahoma.

The 1930 census shows the young Bertha living with her Father, mother, seven siblings, and her paternal grandmother, Georgia A. Shipley (White) in nearby Goldsby.

According to the 1940 census, in 1935 the family was living in the same place, not the same house, as they lived in 1940.

The 1940 census indicates 14-year-old Bertha living with her father, mother, seven siblings. Also living with them was her oldest sister’s husband in Victor Township, McClain county, Oklahoma.  I had a difficult time figuring out exactly where Victor Township is. Google doesn’t show it. Mapquest shows a Victor, OK that is far away from McClain county.  After some effort, I was able to find a map that showed where it was and then I could apply it to a more detailed map.  Victor Township is a larger than typical townDship 9x6 miles square (most townships are 6x6 miles square) that includes the towns of Dibble, Blanchard, and Cole.

Bertha married J.B. Burlison on 10 October 1942 in Dibble, OK. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Clay Richey who was the minister at Free Will Baptist Church. The marriage witnesses were Mr. & Mrs. H. H. Burlison (presumably J.B.’s oldest brother, Haskel Hollis Burlison and his wife).

Their first son, Larry Dean was born 26 September 1943 in Blanchard, OK.

They must have moved to Texas for a while because their second son was born there in 1951. She would have two more children for a total of four boys.

We lose track of J.B. and Bertha until 1955 when they appear in an Oklahoma city directory living at 2826 SW 43rd. J.B. is a driver for Transcon Lines.
They had moved to 3612 SE 15th, Del City before J.B. died in an auto accident New Year’s morning 1972.  He and Bertha had been married 29 years at the time of his death. J.B. is buried at Sunny Lane Cemetery in Del City, OK.

Before 1974, Bertha bought a home at 4013 Angela Drive, Del City.  Because in June of 1974 Bertha and her perspective husband signed an antenuptial agreement protecting her house from her new husband, Jack Earl Gardner, Jr.  I don’t know exactly when they were married, but certainly sometime in 1974.
In 1980, Bertha signed a warranty deed making them joint tenants of the house at 4013 Angela Drive giving Jack full rights of survivorship.

Family history indicates that the house on Angela Drive was destroyed in a tornado in 1999.

On 2 July 2000 Jack died. They had been married for 26 years. Jack Earl Gardner, Jr. is buried at Sunny Lane Cemetery in Del City, OK.

In September 2008, her oldest child, Larry died.

Bertha Mariam Gardner died on 5 November 2013. Services for her were held at Bill Eisenhour Southeast Chapel. Her obituary says she was to be buried in Sunny Lane Cemetery; however, I am not sure where. The marker for her first husband has her name and birthdate on it but has not been inscribed with a death date.  Her second husband’s marker doesn’t indicate anything. So, I need to contact the cemetery and see if their records indicate exactly where Bertha is buried, with her first husband without updating the marker or she may be buried elsewhere in the cemetery.

Lessons to Remember:

  • Always check for County Record repositories. They can provide invaluable information.

Further Research:

  • Determine exact date for Bertha and Jack’s marriage.
  • Determine Bertha’s burial location within Sunny Lane Cemetery.

Herbert Winfield Whitten (1883-1967)

Whitten Project

Introduction

My Whitten Project reminded me of just how much information can be found using Ancestry.Com.  Really, it is an amazing resource.  In the case of my researching Herbert Winfield Whitten, I found a lot of information on Family Search, some on Find My Past, and even some on Mocavo. However, every one of the sources I found on those other sites I also found on Ancestry.Com. If you can afford it, it is the one paid site I recommend above all others.  If you want to get an Ancestry.Com membership and you are an AARP member, call them (don't use the on-line forms) and tell them you would like the one-time AARP Member Discount. If you can't afford an Ancestry.Com membership, you can access the "Library Edition" of Ancestry for free from most public libraries and from all Family History Centers. If you are not currently an Ancestry.Com subscriber, you might want to consider subscribe by using my Ancestry.Com link. (See my disclaimer.) Here is what I found using Ancestry.Com.

Elizabeth LNUs

Randy Seaver’s blog, Genea-Musings, often gets me thinking about things. His recent blog posting, “How Many Elizabeth "LNUs" are in Your Family Tree Database,” got me wondering, how many do I have? In my trees, women without known spinster surnames are easy to determine. I give “last name unknown” (LNU) individuals the last name of their spouse in parenthesis. It might not be standard, but I find it more descriptive than using LNU, “unknown,” or just leaving the surname blank. Anyway, in my Brown/Montran tree of about 4400 individuals, I have five Elizabeth LNUs. Of them, two are direct ancestors, a 7th great-grandmother Elizabeth (Mannin) and an 11th great-grandmother, Elizabeth (Posey).

Randy's blog also suggests taking a fresh look to see if any on-line records now provide clues to the person’s surname, so I decided to take a quick look at my two Elizabeth LNUs.

Elizabeth [Mannin] (c.1725-…)


Elizabeth had five children that I know about. John, Boaz, Samuel (my ancestor), Henry, and Davis. John, the oldest, was born about 1750, so I guess that Elizabeth married Meredith Mannin about 1749. Meredith was born about 1720, so, I’m going to guess that Elizabeth was born about 1725. Henry and Davis were born in Buckingham County, Virginia so I speculate that the family might have came from Buckingham County, also.

My search of Ancestry yielded several entries that didn’t seem to fit what I think I know about Meredith and Elizabeth. However, there was another researcher’s tree that suggests that Elizabeth was born in 1730. I emailed the individual to find out if they might have a source for that birthdate.

I know that I don’t know much about Elizabeth. I appear to have lost the sources of the information that I do have, so I know I need to recreate my previous research. I also think the pedigree information that I have is questionable and needs a lot more research. I would love to hear from anyone who can shed some light on this family.

Elizabeth Humphery (1626-1676)


In looking at Elizabeth [Posey][1], I realized I hadn’t researched her since I found some other individuals GED files back in the 1990s. I had imported details from three different GED files, a practice I wouldn’t do today.

From those files I had entered/accepted the following:

  • Elizabeth was born about 1626.
  • She came to America in 1643 and settled in Maryland.
  • She married Francis Posey about 1643 in Charles County, Maryland.
  • Her daughter, Ann Posey (my ancestor), was born about 1650 in Charles County, Maryland.
  • Her Son, John Posey, was born 20 Jul 1652.
  • Her husband, Francis, died about 1654.
  • She married John Belaine sometime before 1663.
  • They had at least two children, Grace & Nicholas.
  • Her husband, John, died in 1663. 
  • She married Alexander Smith about 1665.
  • Elizabeth died before 1669[2].

Looking at what I have reminded me that I need to do some in-depth research regarding her, also. The good news is a quick search of Ancestry.Com found several Ancestry Trees that contain an Elizabeth Humphery, the wife of Francis Posey. That family tree also includes several sources. I’ll add reviewing these trees’ sources to my list of tasks and apply them to Elizabeth and the other family members as appropriate.

Again, I am grateful for Randy’s blog Genea-Musings. It makes me look at things I haven’t looked at in years and reminds me of the mistakes of my past practices.

Lessons remembered:

  • Be sure to fully document the sources of all facts.
  • Don’t accept facts other individual’s trees without doing a fresh analysis of the facts presented.
  • Use other individual’s sources as hints for research and make your own assessment of its applicability and validity.

Research Areas

  • Redo my research leading to Merideth and Elizabeth (LNU) Mannin and document how I got to them.
  • Do fresh research regarding Francis and Elizabeth (LNU) Posey.

Ruth Grace Montran Cologne (1897-1993)


Only recently have I come to the determination that Ruth Grace Montran is my grandmother’s (Madonna Mae Montran) half sister and that they shared the same father, John F. Montran. In my attempt to prove or disprove that relationship, I’ve researched Ruth considerably and have learned quite a bit about her long life.

"Middlesex-County-Map" by Middlesex County
Municipality - Licensed under Public Domain
via Wikimedia Commons
Ruth Grace Montran was born 27 Nov 1897 in Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, to John Montran and Maud Minnie Winter. Dr. Moorhouse was the attending physician.[i] Her birth was recorded/registered only two weeks later, on 13 Dec 1897, by M. M. Montran (presumed to be Maud).

According to Ruth’s naturalization record[ii], and the 1910 Census[iii], Ruth arrived in the United States in January 1898.

The 1900 Census shows Ruth living with her uncle, Primrose Brown, a railroad laborer, his wife Jerusha [sic – Josephine] Brown, her Scottish maternal grandmother, Maryann Winter, and her older sister Thelma Montran in Waterloo Village, Fayette Township, Seneca County, New York. It is interesting to note that the census indicates that she was born in Canada; however, there is not date in the emigration column, clearly an oversight. Another item of note is that this is the only document I’ve seen that indicates that her father was born in France.[iv] (I have long thought that Madonna’s father was French because Madonna used to say she was “English, Irish, and French.”)

The 1910 Census shows 12 year-old Ruth living in Shamokin, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania with her adoptive parents, Penrose and Josephine E Brown and an 5 year-old adopted brother, Harry P Baker.[v] So,

Ruth married John Terrell Cologne sometime between 1910 and 3 April 1920, as evidenced that she became naturalized Miami, Dade, Florida, USA as Ruth Cologne. The registration number is 13328136 and is something to search for.[vi]

I have not been successful finding John and Ruth in the 1920 Census, yet. Anyone else successful yet?

The 1930 Census finds Ruth living with her husband, John, at 2 Farragut Street, Philadelphia, PA, along with her two children, Dorothy B and John T. Cologne. This census entry is curious because it indicates that her father was born in New York. The 1900 Census indicated her father [John Montran] was born in France, and the 1910 Census indicates her father was born in Pennsylvania. Her father in this census is apparently Primrose Brown. In 1930, Ruth was a saleslady working in a department store. Her husband, John, was a dentist and was working as such[vii]. Two Farragut Street is currently a vacant lot next to the 46th Street Station of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s Market-Frankford Line. It was across Market Street from the Provident Mutual Life Insurance Building that is currently under renovation to become a command center for the Philadelphia Police and the new headquarters the Philadelphia for Health Department.[viii]

What happened between 1930 and 1940 is very unclear. In the 1940 Census, Ruth’s husband, John, is living in Philadelphia with his son, John Jr; however, Ruth is not living with them[ix]. I have not been successful finding Ruth in the 1940 Census, so far. In pure speculation on my part, I think that John and Ruth were probably estranged about 1930 which necessitated Ruth to work outside of the home but they were still living in the same house. Then, by 1940 I suspect they were divorced. John remarried later in the 1940s but Ruth didn’t remarry. As I mentioned, this is speculation; however, it does provide directions for further research.

Ruth Grace Cologne died in Broward County, Florida on 3 Sep 1993[x]. I have not found specific burial information for Ruth Grace Cologne yet.

Areas for Further Research:

  • Determine if Middlesex has certificates for Ruth’s birth period and get a copy if possible.
  • Get a copy of Ruth’s naturalization information/record.
  • Get a copy of Ruth and John’s marriage license/certificate.
  • Find Ruth Grace Montran/Cologne in the 1920 Census.
  • Find Ruth Grace Cologne in the 1940 Census.
  • Learn more about Ruth Cologne’s life from 1940-1993.
  • Determine Ruth Grace Montran Cologne’s burial information/information.
