1 “Wiley Post and Will Rogers, two famed Oklahomans who were killed recently in a tragic airplane crash in Alaska were honored in a special way in Perry this week when a baby boy, born to Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Folger was named in honor to the famous flier and humorist.

Wiley Rogers was the name given the eight and a half pound baby boy born to Mr. and Mrs. Folger here Wednesday, August 28.

The Perry youngster is perhaps the first in the state to be named in honor to the two great men since their untimely death.” 
Folger, Wiley Rogers (I1670)
 
2 Emmett Clements served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Clements, Emmett H. (I1395)
 
3 “Mrs. T. R. Sorrells died at her home
six miles north of Chelsea Tuesday morn-
ing April 23, 1901, of heart failure. She
was about 52 years of age. That morn-
ing their home caught fire and she feared
that it would be entirely consumed, and
she began removing the furniture as
rapidly as possible. Some of the child-
ren succeeded in extinguishing the flames
and when they had accomplished this
they found Mrs. Sorrels laying in the
yard. She was immediately removed to
the house and Dr. Pifer was summoned
at once, but before he arrived she
was beyond medical assistance. Her
sudden death is attributed to her extreme
excitement and fright, causing heart fail-
ure. It is sad indeed to be parted so sud-
denly from one who is so dear, and their
many friends deeply sympathize with
the family in this their irreparable loss.
The remains were laid to rest in the
Chelsea Cemetery Wednesday afternoon,
the burial ceremonies being conducted
by Rev. R. C. Parks.”

5 A phone call to the Henniger-Allen Funeral Home on 10 December 2014, revealed the only other information in the record was “interment at Rosemound,” the only cemetery by that name found in Oklahoma is in Grant County, whose records are housed at the Medford Library; no record of a Folger burial in the cemetery, per Charlene at the library. Folger, Nellie (I1695)
 
6 A search of marriage records in Texas, Nevada and nationwide did not find any record for the marriage of John & Vivian. I believe they were married very close to the time of his divorce from Marge. Family F64
 
7 All records in Evalina'a life show her name spelled with an “E,” including the death certificates of her children. The only time it is found spelled Avalina, is on her headstone. Buzzard, Evalina (I1936)
 
8 Although her headstone and death certificate shows a birth year of 1850, she was listed in the 1850 census as a 1 year old, so she was likely born in 1849. Yearwood, Sandal Narcissa (I1591)
 
9 Annie and Robert Marion are living with their daughter, Alta, in 1900 so she is clearly alive. Her headstone had her death date as 30 May 1919. Hicks, Annie (I488)
 
10 Annie's mother, Beulah, was a witness to their marriage. Family F140
 
11 Archibald enlisted in Co. A, 40 Georgia Infantry, He was paid $50 bounty. He was listed on a receipt for clothing during the second quarter of 1864 and died later that year. Yearwood, Archibald (I1418)
 
12 Archie was a Corporal in Co. K, 398th Infantry, U.S. Army. He served in the European Theater and participated in Rhineland and Central Europe Campaigns. He was awarded the World War II Victory Medal and European African Middle Eastern Service Medal with 2 Bronze Stars. Cook, Archie Lee (I231)
 
13 Asa served in the Spanish American War. Haines, Asa Howard (I1984)
 
14 Based on the birth of children. Family F246
 
15 Bethinia is found in John & Mary Mazy's household in 1870 with her young son, John. She may be the daughter named Sarah in the 1860 census and is listed as Theny in their 1850 census. Mazy, Bethinia (I711)
 
16 Betty could not afford to bury him so she donated his body to science, University of Texas Medical Branch. After the university completed their tests he was cremated and some of his ashes sprinkled where a marker was placed by his brother and sister, next to their parents in Wichita Park Cemetery. Folger, Jerry Allen Sr. (I457)
 
17 Biographical books, referred to as “mug books,” were popular in the late 1800's. William was still alive when History of Belmont and Jefferson Counties, Ohio was printed. His birth date is listed in his biography as 9 May 1813, Winchester, Virginia. When he died, the Soldiers Grave Registration card gave his birth date as 22 August 1814. No informant was listed. The Belmont County death register gives his age as 76 years, 11 months, 3 days, which calculates to a birth date of 9 April 1813. He was likely born in April or May of 1813. Folger, William H. (I1841)
 
18 Birth date calculated from age at death on headstone. Folger, Eli (I1868)
 
19 Birth date calculated from age on death record and headstone. Folger, Philip (I1862)
 
20 Butler County, Alabama, had a major loss of records in an 1853 courthouse fire. No marriage record found in Butler or Pike Counties, Alabama.[1] Estate file of Mary Holland lists her heirs, including “Elizabeth Cook, wife of James C. Cook.”[2] Elizabeth is likely the female 15–19 in her father, James's, household in 1840. James & Elizabeth’s first child, Sarah, was born in April 1842. Based on those dates, they were likely married between 2 June 1840 and sometime in July 1841. Tom King, a descendant of William Benson & Sarah Cook, says he has copies of a Bible that lists their marriage as 8 July 1841. He has not supplied a copy for me. This date fits in the time frame above.[3]

43 Emily’s birth year is different in every record created in her life. The two census’s taken nearest her birth indicate 1854–1856 as a birth year. Either way, she was quite young when she and James “married.” Harris, Harriet Emily (I136)
 
44 Emily’s brother, Ezekial, is living in the household of James C. & Elizabeth Cook in 1870, and Elizabeth is listed as the head of household rather than James. His Confederate pension states that he had suffered diphtheria and “wounded by being struck on the head with a ball.” If James was physically impaired, Ezekial may have been there to help the family with farming chores. Emily and her mother were living just a few farms from James & Elizabeth. No marriage record has been found for James and Emily or a divorce for him and Elizabeth. It is likely that they were never legally married. Emily’s widow’s pension of 1908 says they were married in Crenshaw County, Alabama in 1871, she did not remember the date. The 1927 application she lists about 10 January and no year. Elwood was born c. 1875 or 1876. The 1880 census only shows one child: Elbert, age 5, who is most likely Elwood. Family F48
