Lauretta 2m Carroll B. LOOKADOO abt 1904 also in the Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory. He was born abt 1878 in Arkansas. I do not know if hubby #2 died or they divorced but they had 5 children:
1) Fred born Oct 27 1907 OK married Ada [ LOWERY]
2) Lela born abt 1909 Bryan Co OK
3) Veo Lean born 11 Mar 1911 OK married Rufus Darby JONES
4) Ruby born 15 Mar 1913 OK married William Collin WILSON
5) Frank Haskell born abt 1915 OK married Jewell Estelle [LOWE]
I have a little more information on these children.
Abt 1917 Lauretta 3m William Ellis NUNNALLY in Bryan Co, OKLA. He was born 04 Nov 1878 in Fannin Co TX and died 30 Mar 1944 in Collingsworth Co TX. William was the oldest child of John Daniel NUNNALLY and Eddie (Edie) [HARRIS] who married abt 1877 in Fannin Co TX.
William and Lauretta had 2 daughters:
1) Naomi born abt 1919 in Bryan Co OK
2) Frances born 21 Jul 1921 Bryan Co OK - died 09 Oct 1994 Riverside Co CA - she married "Mr SMITH"
William Ellis NUNNALLY had 3 daughters by his 1st marriage to Pearl [unk]:
1) Emma (Erma?) born abt 1901 in the Indian Territory (OK)
2) Luda Bee born abt 1905 in the Indian Territory (OK) married Delvin TAYLOR abt 1920 in Bryan Co OK
3) Mary Otha born 22 Jun 1910 Bryan Co OK - died 13 Aug 1975 in Riverside Co, CA. married Walter Philmore BOUTCHER on 25 Nov 1925 in Wellington, Collinsgworth Co TX.
In the mid 1920''s Lauretta and most if not all of her "yours, mine, and ours" family moved to Collingsworth Co TX.
I am having to go in the "back door" to find the other 4 children of William Ellis NUNNALLY by hoping his step children's information will lead me to them.
If you have any records on any of the persons named above, I would deeply appreciate it if you would share that information with me.
Nunnally / Nunnelee family researcher,
P.S. Veo Elene and her brother Fred are both buried in unmarked graves in the Quail Cemetery, Quail, Collingsworth Co, TX
I read on another website that Lauretta was a "mean old lady who kicked her kids out when they became 12 years old" but the census records just don't show that ? Even her son Delwin was still at home when he was 20 years old.
