My Great Grandfather was Benjamin Franklin Laxton, and he died sometime in 1894 just before my Grandmother Myrtle Laxton was born. Benjamin was born 1864 in Arkansas to James and Mary (Bernard) Laxton. Benjamin married Margaret Baker, she was my Great Grandmother (mother of Myrtle). He died in Choctaw Indian Territory in Oklahoma. However my father said he was never talked about. My Great Grandma Margaret Laxton married Willam Rains when my Grandmother was only two years old.
There is no record of his death or where he is buried. His siblings were Liddie, John, James, Albert Gerome and David. It is all such a mystery and wondered if anyone researching the Laxtons, knew anything. Thank you, Frances
