Iâ€™m looking for information on Hale Baxter, believed to have been born in Arkansas. He married (1) Nancy Hanna, (2) Myrtle Unknown, and (3) Wife Unknown.
Hale and (1) Nancy Hannaâ€™s children were:

Hale and (3) Wife Unknown were:
Hale and Nancyâ€™s childrenâ€™s families:
William Baxter married wife unknown. Their children were:
Lawrence H. Baxter, Fern Baxter, Earl Baxter, Roy Baxter

Myrtle Baxter married Earl Redlinger. Their child was William C. Redlinger. William married Barbara Corselius. Their children were: Marcia Jean, Sharon Kay, Leona May.
I know James and Jennie Baxter had land in North Dakota â€“ their homestead. In North Dakota there was a John Baxter that owned land close to them. Iâ€™m hoping in was a relative.
James and Jennie moved to Washington before 1921.
I know that Jennieâ€™s parents (Francis Freemont Shannon and Melisa Alta Neigh ShannonThomas) had moved to Washington and died there in 1926 and 1939.
Iâ€™m at a brick wall for Hale Baxterâ€™s family. I hope someone can see a connection. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
