I'm looking for anyone who knows of this family. Martin Luther Self was married to Belle (____) possibly Trotter..
He was the son of Vinson Garner Self, Jr. and Mary Malissa Hallmark. Vinson and Mary moved with their family here when it was still Indian Territory. They are listed on the Dawes Roll as Choctaw Intermarried Whites. Vinson's son, Robert L., married Ida Wilson, daughter of Charley and Lizzie Wilson.
My ex-husband, Jerry R. Self of Edmond OK, believes that his grandfather's name was Luther Self, but his sister believes it was William Self. Both could be descended from Martin Luther. My ex-father-in-law, Arthur Wayne Self, is deceased and can't tell us and I can't get a birth certificate for him unless I know his father's name and where he was born.
Arthur's father (either William or Luther) died when Art was a child. Perhaps in 1923-27. His mother was Laura Gertrude Williamson who re-married to James Keller.I have found Laura with her parents in 1910 in LeFlore Co., OK also. The family story is that she created a real scandal in the church and community when she re-married so quickly.
Does anyone have any information on this branch of the Self family? Stories? pictures?
(doing genealogy for my son, Anthony Self)
