My maternal Great Aunt, Violet Josephine Baker (Durkee) Huey (7/9/1894 – 8/12/1937) was married to Frank Leroy Huey (1/20/1896 – 5/26/1974). Violet first married Eugene Franklin Durkee (4/19/1894 -- ??). Marriage date unknown; ended in divorce. They had a son, Frances Edward Durkee (9/9/1913 – 7/9/1999).
Violet Josephine and Frank Leroy Huey (marriage date unknown) had the following children:
1. Helen Josephine Huey – Abt. 1922 – 2/15/1937 – died at age 15 after “an illness of nearly a year”.
2. Doris M. Huey Colvin – 6/27/1924 – 6/4/1993
3. Walter L. Huey – 10/13/1925 – 1/20/1998
4. Gus Lawrence Huey – 10/14/1926 – 2/19/1945 (WW II casualty; buried National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Hawaii)
5. Gerald David Huey – 9/26/1929 – 7/20/1997
After my aunt died in 1937 (Frank’s obit states 1938), he married Mrs. Marie Phelps on 3/23/1947.
Unfortunately, Frank took his own life in 1974. (I have the newspaper clippings.) It would appear he had been treated for stomach cancer in the preceding weeks before his death.
I have obituaries for Frank Leroy, Violet Josephine and Helen Josephine, plus the news clipping about Frank’s death. If you would like, I can send you a scan of them.
I had hoped the obits would give more links to siblings. Helen’s obit mentions grandfather G. L. Huey of Norman, Oklahoma; Frank’s obit mentions surviving sons W. L. Huey, Topeka, Kansas and Gerald D. Huey, Lawrence, Kansas and daughter Doris R. Colvin, Oologah, Oklahoma; sister Mrs. Peter Herber, Peoria, Illinois.
Using your list as a basis:
Huey, Bert – Carl Albert Huey (?), Abt. 1900 – Shown as “Carl”, then “Burt” on Census Records
Huey, Ben – Benjamin Huey – 5/25/1898 – 9/17/1975
Huey, Frank – Frank Leroy Huey – 1/20/1896 – 5/ 26/1974
Huey, Earl – Lowery Earl Huey – 7/01/1894 – 9/20/1962
Huey, Pauline – Pauline J. Huey Herber – 4/15/1905 – 7/30/1992
I found the following link for Norman I O O F Cemetery, Norman, Oklahoma:
I am confused as to who the “Olive Irene” is. You show Benjamin’s wife as Irene S., so I thought maybe the death date is wrong OR it could have been another child of Gustin and Olive May. What do you think?

The link to your homepage was very helpful to me. I would be interested to know if you have any pictures of Frank’s wife or children.
