FRANK G. TANCO DIES IN TULSA HOSPITAL AT 91 AFTER OPERATION
Frank G. Tanco, 91, of 706 W. 7th pl., a salesman at Fields Stationery Co. for the past 36 years, died Wednesday night in a Tulsa hospital.
Mr. Tanco had reported for work since 1918 at the stationery story, 701 S. Main st., until he was injured Apr. 22 while stepping off a bus near his home. He suffered a broken hip in the fall, and remained in the hospital until July 11.
A week later Mr. Tanco was returned to the hospital where he underwent a major abdominal operation.
He was a native of New York City, moving to Keokuk, Ia., in childhood and finishing school there, Mr. Tanco lived for a short time in Kansas City, before going to San Antonio.
He admitted that he was born a Republican but shifted to the Democratic party when he went to Texas. His first vote for President of the United States was cast for Charles A. Arthur.
Mr. Tanco worked as a paper carrier, typesetter, and pressman while living in San Antonio, Fort Worth and Dallas.
In 1918, he moved to Tulsa and was employed by the Field firm as a salesman. He was on the job for 36 years, missing work very few days before his fall.
Mr. Tanco accomplished a rarity in insurance circles in 1946 when the Great Southern Life Insurance Co. "gave up" on his life insurance policy and terminated collection of his quarterly premiums. He was 85 at the time.
He had been paying on the policy for over 30 years, and Mr. Tanco estimated that he had paid the company $1,000 more than the $2,000 face value of the policy.
Mr. Tanco enjoyed birds and flowers. The backyard of the Tanco home served as a haven for the birds and which he fed and kept supplied with water in a birdbath. Many varieties of flowers received his constant attention around the home and each morning he would select a fresh one for his lapel.
He usually wore a gray tweed cap when in the yard and when he went visiting.
Mr. and Mrs. Tanco celebrated their 53 wedding anniversary Sept. 12, 1953.
Survivors include the widow, Elizabeth, of the home; a son, A. B. Tanco, Dallas, Tex.; a daughter, Mrs. Lauree T. Simpson, of the home; three grandchildren, and one great grandchild.
Arrangements are pending with the Moore funeral home.

Biography (This page hand written by Lauree Tanco Simpson)
Born near Lufkin, Angelina County, Texas to Martha and Henry Simmons, October 10th, 1872, had two sisters Minnie and Fannie and one brother, Willie; Mother died when she was 6 years old. Father took children to Ft. Worth, Texas, and after living at various places, she finally went to live with the Kinsey family, where she remained until she was 28 years old, at which time on September 12th, 1900 whe was united in marriage to Frank George Tanco, widower with one child, Madeleine Frances Tanco.
Of this union two children -- Archie Burton Tanco and Lauree Elizabeth Tanco were born. Lived in Ft. Worth until 1912 and then moved to Dallas where they resided until the year 1918 and then moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she lived until her death in 1959. Frances Madeleine Tanco died in 1916.
Converted in her early 20's, she was active in the Broadway Baptist church in Ft. Worth; in Ervay Street and McKinney Ave. Baptist Churches in Dallas, and First Baptist Church in Tulsa.
Although her education was spasmodic and incomplete she was gifted with words and the capacity for beautiful expression, and many wonderful letters, poems, devotionals and thought flowed from her pen to enrich and comfort the hearts of others. She was the living example of perfection in the performance of her role as wife and mother and the home which she kept was a sanctuary and a refuge for her family. Several of her poems appeared in The Tulsa Tribune in a column called "Listening Street" edited by Toby LaForge.
She was always a good neighbor, loved, respected and admired in each community where she lived -- missed when she left.
Elizabeth Simmons Tanco was strickin in 1953 with the ailment which took her away on July 1st 1959. She died as she lived, serene in her faith -- unafraid. On the day before she died, suffering from all the complications of her illness, she said, "Perhaps my call will come tomorrow" and it did; Jesus spoke her name as she slept and her spirit departed to the mansions not made with hands.

July 27, 1893 Yesterday morning about 2 o'clock a burglar was frightened away from Mr. Felix Tanco's residence, 602 Main street. Mrs. Tanco has a pet bird whose cage is on the upper front gallery. She heard the bird fluttering and thinking a cat was after it went to the door and looked out. When she reached the door she saw a man climbing over the bannisters and she turned and ran to the dresser on which lay a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver. She snatched it up and ran out on the gallery. The man had taken fright and reached the lower porch when Mrs. Tanco reappeared at the gallery. Just as he started off in a run she fired, but the bullet apparently went wild. The man ran directly across the street, and just as he reached the opposite side Mrs. Tanco fired again. This time the man threw up his hands and exclaimed,"My God,' but kept running.

Article Title: HE MET A HORRIBLE DEATH
Article Subtitle: A Chicago Drummer Dies of Self Inflicted Wounds
Additional Inset Text:
(1) A SIXSHOOTER THE WEAPON USED
(2) But one Shot Was Fired and That Was Over the Heart--Testimony at the Inquest.
William G. Laing, a traveling man, whose home was in Chicago, met death last evening at 6:30 o'clock by receiving a shot from an ivory-handled six-shooter of 44 caliber, which took effect directly over the heart. The body was found in the rear end of Felix Tanco's saloon, at the corner of Commerce and Akard street. Blood has spurted from the wound until the entire surroundings were covered with it, making a gory spectacle. When the door of the room was broken open, the air was filled [with] smoke and the weapon used lay upon the floor with one chamber empty.
Justice Edwards viewed the remains, and this morning, took evidence in the inquest proceedings, after which, he rendered the verdict that deceased met his death from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.
Felix Tanco, proprietor of the saloon, testified as follows at the inquest:
"Laing came into my place early yesterday morning. He said that he was sick and that for some time, his stomach had been so weak, it could not retain anything. He gladly accepted my invitation to take breakfast with me, and I prepared some poached eggs on toast for him. We ate together. Then, he said he wanted a drink, and I suggested that it would be best for him not to take anything for awhile. He agreed, and lighting a cigarette, he left with a friend.
"He came back again about noon and said that he was still feeling far from well, and together we partook of some vegetable soup and a few other light articles of food. During the meal, I expressed my horror at the assassination of King Humbert."
" 'The poor fellow is out of his trouble now,' said Mr. Laing. 'If I knew that lightning would strike and kill me the moment I went out of that door, I would be the happiest man in the world.'
"We cheered him up as best we could and he left, and I saw no more of him until a few minutes before he died, when he came in with a number of friends and took a drink. Then, he excused himself and went into a back room.
"A few seconds later, we heard a pistol shot, and rushing back, tried to open the door to the room he had entered, but there seemed to be some sort of a weight against it and we did not succeed until Police Officers Stampley and Tanner arrived. Then, it was we found that the weight was Laing's inanimate body.
"The room was filled with power smoke and the walls and floor were spattered and smeared with blood that was spurting from a bullet hole in the body just above the heart. Nearby lay an ivory-handled, 44-caliber, double-action six-shooter, of Colt's make. It had one empty chamber.
"In firing the shot, the coat had been pulled back, so that only the shirt had been powder burned. The sight was an awful one."
Other witnesses corroborated the above testimony.
After the shooting, the body was taken to the undertaking establishment of J. E. Dun & Co., where many people viewed it.
Deceased was a young man under 25 years of age. He came to Dallas and registered at the Oriental hotel on July 25. He traveled for a big Chicago lumber firm, of which his father is president. Last night, the latter was notified by telegraph of his son's death. This morning, a reply was received which instructed that the body be prepared for interment and shipped to Chicago. The relatives of the dead man are wealthy and well known residents of that city.
No farewell messages were found about the person of the deceased.

VETERAN CITY LAWYER DIES
Joseph Simpson, Sr.
Joseph Wiley Simpson, Sr., 63, of 345 S. Zunis ave., veteran Tulsa attorney and one-time state legislator from Tulsa county, died Saturday in the Veterans hospital at Little Rock, Arkansas.
Mr. Simpson had been in failing health since suffering a stroke in 1948. He was a candidate for state senator in 1950 but was admitted to the Little Rock hospital in June before the July primary.
He served in the state legislature in 1922-23 during the turbulent Jack Walton era and was a candidate for county attorney in 1924. He also was chairman of the Democratic city central committee in 1926-28.
The long-time attorney began his Tulsa practice in 1919 after he was discharged from the Army. He saw overseas service during World War I.
He continued his practice in Tulsa until he suffered the stroke in 1948. The next 2 years he engaged in a limited practice. For several years, his offices were in the Mayo building.
Mr. Simpson was born near Oakman, Ala., and attended law school at Birmingham. He was a member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Oklahoma and Tulsa Bar Assns. and the Temple Baptist Church.
Survivors include the widow, Clara: three sons, (these two possibly living â€“ they have all been removed for privacy), both of the home, and Joseph W. Simpson, Jr., (deceased), 809 W. 7th st.; Living Daughter Simpson, Victoria, Tex., and a grandchild.
The body is being returned to the Moore funeral home where arrangements will be announced later.
* Reply from OK Dept of Libraries: Query returned confirmation that J.W. Simpson was with the Legislature during the years represented in his obituary.

Subject: Re: Joseph Wiley Simpson - Legislator ???
We have a very limited staff and do not do research. We can verify that someone was a member of the Oklahoma Legislature and check our resources in this facility. I suggest that you contact the Oklahoma Historical Society to determine if they have information on Mr. Simpson. They have vast quantities of historical data and an excellent genealogical library. Tulsa newspapers of the appropriate years may also contain information.
I found no biographical information in our legislative reference vertical files. Neither did the librarian of the Oklahoma collection. I also checked the indices to the Chronicles of Oklahoma from vol. 1-vol 57 without finding a reference to Mr. Simpson. The Oklahoma Almanac lists J.W. Simpson as a member of the House of Representatives of the Ninth Oklahoma Legislature, 1923-24. He is listed as a Democrat representing Tulsa county. The earlier legislatures did not use district numbers but used counties. The Constitution provided a formula for multiple representatives from larger counties based on population. Tulsa county had five Representatives at that time. The House Journals for 1923 and the First Extraordinary Session (1923) and Second Extraordinary Session (1924) list J.W. Simpson as a member.
The index for each House Journal lists bills and resolutions for which he was the primary sponsor. References to committee memberships are also included.
You are welcome to use these Journals in our library. We are located in the State Capitol (NE 23rd and Lincoln) in Room B-8. Our facility is located in the southeast corner of the basement, near the entrance to the tunnel. We are open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday, except state holidays. Librarians are available at our service desk to assist you in locating the Journals and in using the index to locate the information.
Although many public libraries in Oklahoma and many law libraries across the U.S. have Oklahoma House Journals for more recent years, few have Journals from the times you are seeking. You might call to verify whether a library in your vicinity has the years listed above.
I hope this information will assist you in your research.
