McLellan, Abner

Thanks for responding to my query.

Since posting my queries regarding Abner McLellan, I've learned that Abner and two of his brothers (William and Samuel Jefferson) are buried there in unmarked graves. However, I do not have teh dates for William and Samuel. The story given to me that the family was so poor they could not afford headstones. However, I'm still looking to obtain a photo of the grave plots just to see what it looks like and would like to obtain dates for William and Samuel.

I have made contact with the granddaughter of Abner and have learned a little more information about him and his family. It seems that his wife remarried and moved out of the area shortly thereafter. I"m making a trip to southern OK to do some research on his family after they left Caddo.

Could you advise me if the library at Calera has any information on what life was like in the Caddo area in the time fram 1880-1895. I've checked several books out of the library, but none describe what life was like during that time frame.
