Hartley and DeWitt Families

Posted: 7 Aug 2005 2:59PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: DeWitt, Hartley
Can anyone help me with my dead-ends on these families as they moved to Geary, Oklahoma, and all is lost for me in attempting to find out where they are buried, what happened to them, etc. I am especially interested in Eunice Hartley who was a widow in the area in 1910. Not everybody moved to Geary, but some of them did.
