Hello, J. Estes:

Yes, there is a wonderful genealogy site for Latimer, Co. Oklahoma, and Wilburton, Ok. You can find the link to it by going to message 31 on the very site you posted your request--the Latimer Co. Forum on Genforum. Here is the e-mail address, anyway, but it probably better to go to the link on the site.

It is: www.rootsweb.com/~oklahomatime/.

This site also should provide other links to cemetaries, marriages, divorces, some obits, etc. The phone number and mailing address for the Latimer Genealogical Society will be found there, and there may be volunteers there who do look-ups at the court house, newpaper archives, etc. I haven`t asked for any look-ups, so I don`t know about that, but I feel sure that if you contact the society, they can help you.

You will also find links to the counties surrounding Latimer Co. which could be beneficial to your research. The county seat of Latimer is Wilburton, Poteau is county seat for LeFlore County, McAlester is county seat for Pittsburg County.

This is one of the best, if not the best, site, in Oklahoma, and certainly one of the best I have seen so far, in regard to the rest of the country. I feel that all those involved with the Genealogical Society of Latimer County have really worked hard to give the most complete information, and I, for one, have been most appreciative.

Hope this helps. Good luck with your search.

Sincerely,
Shirley
