I am working on my Dooley genealogy again. Looking for my Dooleys that went West! They stopped a few years in Fannin County Texas. Then they were in Gavin Oklahoma and Park County and Washakie County Wyoming. Also some were in Arkadelphia Arkansas.
Benjamin Franklin Dooley ( born 1848 Georgia)
In 1871 in Polk County Ga, Ben marries Lizzie Venable.
1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 Ben resides in Arkadelphia Arkansas. In 1930 heresides in Gavin Oklahoma with his daughter.He is a farmer, a grocer,and contstable into his 70’s. After his wife dies he moves in with his daughter in Gavin Oklahoma. She is divorced and runs a hotel. He died in 1936.
Benjamin Franklin Dooley has two children
1. C. Ed or Edward or Edwin Dooley (13 Mar 1874 ) lived in Bonham Texas, he married Laura (McNiel). C E Dooley Bride's Name: Laura Mcneal Marriage Date: 18 Dec 1898 I found this marriage record in Fannin County.He was a mechanic. He died at on 27 Jan 1922 at age 47 of tuberculosis, and is buried in the Dooley plot at Carson Cemetery, Fannin Texas. His father B F Dooley gave the information on his death certificate.
2. Jenny Dooley who married a Dickenson, and later divorced. They lived in Oklahoma. Jennie Dooley Dickson is buried at Oaklawn cemetery, Garvin Oklahoma. Dec 21, 1876 - May 19, 1956
After her husband died, I always wondered what happened to Laura McNiel Dooley. I think three of her four children were born in Fannin County Texas
I found a birth certificate of a child- Benjamin Franklin Dooley, born 1910 in Texas. The birth certificate information where she filed to get the one from Texas, states she had a total of 4 children and one had died.
In the 1930 census I think I found her in Sayre, Beckham, Oklahomahttps://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XCQY-8L1

24 divorced female waitress, lodger born 1916 in Texas. It states she was also living there in 1935. She later marries and dies in a car wreck in the 40’s.
I think this is the correct family. Does anyone know someone who researches this line?
This would answer a lot of my questions as to what happened to these people.
