Hello Janice,
Leta told me that Sarah and John A Anderson died in Geary Oklahoma ( Blaine county). I believe it is just west of Oklahoma City. I'm not sure if I have their exact death dates. Do you have them? It was before 1910 as we find Uncle Del and Papa living with the Robert Smithee family in Crosbyton county 1910. Robert Smithee was married to Jane McPike. Jane is our Sarah's sister. There son George died in a tornado "cyclone" early 1900s. There is a picture of them with their three sons.
Sarah's parents were George McPike and Clarissa Mayo McPike. George was adopted by his Uncle Adoniram Shaw ... I think 1840. George and Claissa have a stone and are buried in a small family cemetery near Calamine Arkansas ("Street Family Cemetery"). Calamine is in Sharp county. Andrew, my grandfather was born in Calamine in 1895. I'm not sure if Uncle Del was born there or not ... I'd think he probably was.
George was a country doctor in Calamine. He died 1900. His parents were Haley and "miss" Shaw. I've been told Haley died in 1833 in St Louis, but haven't found documentation. Haley was son of
"Captain" James McPike and Martha Mountain. I know "miss" Shaw had a sister named Louisa and a brother named Adoniram Shaw. "miss" Shaw's mother's name is Therusa or Thursy or Thurza ( many variations I've found) Our Shaws came from Otsego county New York to Missouri and then to Arkansas.
I know this sounds a bit confusing, but I will put together what I have on the McPikes and Andersons along with pictures and send them to you. You may send your mailing address directly to my email. Genealogy is a fun hobby that gives you a better appreciation of history. I enjoy it when I can find the time for it. Anyway, thanks for contacting me. Your cousin, Bill
