Looking for more information on people connected with Fenelon Blake (1851-1920). He ran a grocery business in Lexington, Cleveland Co, OK for more than 20 years. He married Lola W Turner after 1900 and had one surviving child, Eugene born Feb 1904. His mother-in-law Margaret Ellen Allison Turner married someone named Hills after 1900 and was either divorced or widowed by 1910. Her fate after 1910 is unknown. Fenelon died in 1920 after the census (found his probate listing). Lola and Eugene disappear after 1920. Eugene died in 1955 per SS records, place not indicated, probably Oklahoma?? Have a lot on the Allisons. They came to OK from WA because some of them qualified for land under the Dawes commission and some didn't. Margaret's and Lola's claims were rejected while other siblings of Margaret's were granted land under appeals later. They were Cherokee and moved to CA in the 1860s and then to CA and OR and WA. Finally to OK. Would like to find out what happened to Lola and Margaret.
