My husbands grandfather's last name is McCanless.The other surnames that I am researching are as follows: Howard, Dollar, Graham, Walker,Thomas and Dawson. If any one out there that sees this posting and know any one with this last name please contact me at I am very interested in finding any one out there that may have information on a Napolean Bonapart McCanless that was married to a Bettie, aka Elizabeth or Sarah Thomas McCanless. Napolean and Sarah married in Kaufman County, Kaufman Texas on 11th of August, 1874. I know that Napolean and Sarah along with John showed up on the 1910 census for Caney, Oklahoma, Atoka County. Out of that marriage there were several children. There were several children that passed away. We know that they had 3 sons, Will, Jim and John and possilby a daughter named Rosie. John McCanless b. July 17, 1886 in Kaufman Texas is the son that is my husbands grandfather. We have no information on Jim other that he married L.Florence (no last name), b. 3-2-1885 d. 12-18-1936. They had a son, Valey McCanless on 8-4-1904 d.5-12-1918. Both Florence and Valey are buried at Restland Cemetary at Boswell, Oklahoma. I am in the understanding there are McCanless's in the Enid area as well as in the town of Seminole Oklahoma. Please, if you can provide any information, get in touch with me. Thank you so much.

Judy and Roger
