The Koons family

My grand parents on my mother's side were from Wayne County, Kentucky and moved to south central Oklahoma around 1900 or a little later. My mother was born to them in Love County, Oklahoma in 1914. My great grandmother's name was Jana Lee Riley (I think that is how the last name was spelled)and one of her sons was Francis Marion Koons. He married Sara (?) and together they had eleven sons and daughters. Some of their names are John, Benjamine, Clarence, Walter, Fred, Nancy, Grace, Mazie, Idel, and Nelda. Most of them are not living now. My mother used to talk of an uncle named Will which I assume was short for William and was a brother of my grandfather Koons. If you know anything about this family, especially before they came to Oklahoma, please let me know.
