Elisha Tompkins Hargis was my great-great grandfather. He was born in Oklahoma and died there on Nov. 4, 1903, buried in Marlow OK. He had a twin brother named Elijah.
My great-grandmother, Ruth Ellen (Hargis) Hammer was his daughter. Her and his son Joseph Hargis were born to Elisha Tomplins Hargis and his first wife, (she died in childbirth with her third child). I don't have a name on Elisha's first wife nor does anyone else in the family. The name of the first wife and information on her is greatly needed. We have info on Elisha and his 2nd wife Ella (Mullen) Hargis.
Son Joseph Hargis was deaf and had been killed by a train while walking on the tracks. He was married and it is believed he had four children and lived near Sacramento, Calif. I am looking for any one who might have additional information on Elisha Tompkins Hargis, his son Joseph or his brother Elijah.
I believe that Elisha's first wife was of Cherokee descent as was his second.
