Ben Stansberry- Mollie (Mary) Fogg

Would like to exchange information on Benjamin C. Stansberry,1864-1923, born in Indian Territory, and Mollie (Mary) Fogg, 1868-1929, born in Indiana. She was the daughter of Shephard Fogg and Sarah Simpson of New Jersey.

Have hit a complete dead end on Ben. Per censuses, his father was born in PA, his mother in OK or Arkansas. Family lore says Ben was born on an Indian Reservation in Indian Territory, was at least half Indian, may have been a miner for a time prior to 1900, and the Stansberrys were "Yankees." A Barry Co. 1909 plat map shows he owned 80 acres around Flat Creek. Can't even find a marriage record for Ben and Mollie.

They were my great grandparents.
