States: California: Riverside
I am seeking descendants of Ola Mae(Cheak/Cheek) Skaggs, born 3/26/1902 in Hollis, Harmon Co., OK, who died on 4/9/1982 in Beaumont, Riverside Co., CA. I haven't yet located an obituary for her, but a niece told me she was buried in the Garden of Remembrance at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, Los Angeles Co., CA. I was also told that she had a daughter and 2 sons who lived in California (they may also have died by now). Ola Mae was one of 10 daughters of Christopher Columbus Cheek/Cheak and Mary Elizabeth Sanders. She first married Ansel Jenkins in about 1920 and then later married a Skaggs, (first name unknown). I'm not sure if her sons' last names were Jenkins or Skaggs. Ola Mae was on the 1910 Looney, Harmon Co., OK census with her parents, and I haven't located her on 1920 or 1930 census, so I don't know when she went to California, but I'm guessing after the 1930 census, as there are family pictures with her in it before that. If anyone has any hints as to an obituary, or how to find out any more about her, please let me know. I have contacted Forest Lawn, Glendale, but since that place is SO huge, I have my doubts I'll get any response from them. Thanks for any clues anyone may have. I have some old family pictures that I would love to share, and other genealogical information also.
