Does anyone have any info. on George Pope born in Kentucky abt. 1813 AND Martha Creek was born in Missouri abt 1820 . I found Martha and George in , Van Buren CASS County, Missouri; Marriage Book A 1836-1849 [ POPE GEORGE NOV 14 1838 CREEK MARTHY
In Van Buren , Cass county Missouri Page 20]
I found them in the 1850 census for Bates County Missouri. and then I found them again in the 1860 census in Upper Township , Sebastion County AR .George Died sometime after 1861 and before 1870 , I found Martha and children in the 1870 census in Jasper Township , Crawford County AR. In the 1880 census Martha is still in Jasper Township . I lost her after that . I Have not been able to look at the 1890 or 1900 census .
George and Martha had Eight children :
They Are ::
John Pope born abt 1840 in Missouri
Matildia " " 1846 in " "
James " " 1849 in " "
Anna Eliza " " 1853 in " "
Julia " " 1855 in " "
Boyd " " 1856 in " "
Emily " " 1857 in " "
Robert " " 1861 in Arkansas

James Pope is my line .
James Married Mary Jane Yadon in Crawford County Arkansas In 1868 or 69 they had Three Children They are :
Tessie A. Pope Born abt.1869 in AR
John Pope Born abt . 1873 in AR
Emma Pope Born abt . 1877 in AR
Mary Jane Yadon Pope Died sometime after Emma's birth .
James married Sallie BURCHFIELD, 03 Nov 1878 in Crawford County Ar. Sallie was Mary Jane's step-sister .
James and Sallie had Mattie Pope Born abt. 1879 in Ar
Sallie had two sons with her from her first marriage .
John Birchfield Born abt. 1871 in AR
and Willie Birchfield Born Abt.1876 in AR

Jame's Son John is my line .
John moved to oklahoma and married a women we do not know her name just that she was married before and had two daughters and one son his name was Q. Wrad , I know that Q. Ward was a big man and to look at him you did not want to cross him . Back on track James married ??Ward around 1905 or 1906 they had a son named Earl Oliver Pope he was born 1907 His mother ?? Ward /Pope died before 1910 . I found James Pope and Earl Pope living with a Palmer K. Goodman and Family in the 1910 census Shawnee Ward 5, Pottawatomie, Oklahoma, .it said the James was Palmer K.Goodman's brother in-law . Palmer's wife name was Emma and Daughter's name was Helen . I also found that James Pope lived in Shawnee Ward 5, Pottawatomie, Oklahoma . In the 1910 census it said the he was also Widowed .
John died before 1920 and Earl was raises by Richard Brown Yadon and His wife Mary Yadon . Richard was a younger half brother to Mary Jane Yadon Pope .
so as everyone can see I need to help . I do have a few pictures . That I would be happy to share. Also John did remarry but we do not know her name but she did give John a child and they named him Jewel Pope born abt 1914 or 1915 . we do not know much about him just that when John died his wife could not take care of Jewel and Earl so she went back to her family we know that she was a blond headed women .
Earl Married Bessie L, Winter in 1930 in Shafter California the had 5 children
And Steven Edward Pope Sr.
Steven is my father .
I do have a lot of info on the Yadon Line and I have just come across a lot of info on the Creek line I need help with George Pope and His Mother and Father and then I need help with John and his Wives .I will be posting the new info. on the Creek line in the next few days .
Thank You Everyone
Lorene Pope/Bartlett
