I am looking for some information on my great grandmother Mary Johnetta Dollar.
According to the 1920 census Johnetta is living in Horatio, Arkansas and married to my great grandfather Holly Bauer (H.B.) Marshall and has a child named Mingart H Marshall, which should actually be Mynard Chleaho Henry Marshall (M.C). Johnetta is listed as being born in Arkansas. M.C.said his mother passed away when he was about 7 or 8 which would put Johnetta's death about 1922-1925.
On March 3,1926 H.B is applying for a marriage license to Miss Myrtle Jones who is believed to be Johnetta's cousin.I do not know if this is on the mother's or fathers side. Marriage license said M.C was still from Horatio and Myrtle was from Hot Springs. I guess shortly after they moved to Sugden, Oklahoma.
When Myrtle passes away her mother Mary Parker comes to help take care of the children (M.C. Wanda Lee,Oren). Because of the chatter in the community H.B. marries Mary to put rumors to rest. Myrtle and Mary are both buried in Sugden, Oklahoma in the Dixieland Cemetery and you can find their graves on findagrave.com pictures of the headstones are available.
According to the census M.C would be the first born, however talking to an Aunt there was a child before named. Benjamin Noel Marshall who passed away when he was 7. It is also believed he died in Bonham, Fanning County, Texas (which is where I found H.B on the 1910 census listed as single) or maybe Arlington.
I know this really isn't much information but it is all I have, If you have any information it is sincerely appreciated. I have no idea as to where she was born 1887, who her parents were, when she was married or even when or where she is buried. A great-grandmother should never be forgotten.
