My father, Gabriel Dillard Beasley, was born in Calvin Okla in 1915 to Minnie (Grubbs) Beasley and Barney Ballard Beasley. Minnie & Barney were divorced in 1917 and Barney moved to California. My father, Gabriel, lived in the McAlester area most of his life, married my mother, Mildred Lorene DeWees, and moved to Arizona where he lived the last ten years of his life. Very little information about the Beasley family was handed down. I do know that my Grandfather Barney was born 6/20/1895 in the Choctaw nation to Maggie (Cantrell)and I think Gabriel Beasley. Barney had two brothers, Ira Defford Beasley, born Aug 1893 and Harry D Beasley born Jan 1899. Any information about these Beasleys or Cantrells would be very much appreciated.
