Surnames: Hargis
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.
Please email me at sbduncan@attbi.com if you have any information.
Thanks,
Bonnie

I don't know if this is a connection or not but---My great grandfather was Elisha Hargis(also called Harquis). He was born Apr 1837 in Illinois but I think it may have been KY. Anyway, my Elisha married Nancy J. Walker, abt 3/4 blood Cherokee. They divorced about 1886/7 in OK. My grandmother, Elisha's dau, Tooka Attlee was born 1886 at Hurlburt OK then Ind Territory on the reservation, in the Going Snake district. This family centered around the Ft. Gibson and Talequah regions. I don't know if this is the same Elisha as yours but I would sure like to put the question to bed.

Bob,
Elisha Hargis was also my ggfather and he is the father of Tooka Attilee. Elisha is listed on the Cherokee rolls as having abandoned Nancy and children, and his next appearance in the census was in 1880, living with his mother Catherine (Ogden, due to remarriage), and 2 children from an apparent affair or 2nd marriage. In the 1900 census, he was listed as back in OK, with a 2nd indigenous wife, Ella (Mullen) - 30 years younger, and children. You can contact me at roybennet@gmail.com if you need more. I have little else.
