Re: Cemeteries in Prague

I am hoping to make a trip to the Oklahoma Newspapers Archives Library in Oklahoma City within the next few days. What cemetery is your ggrandfather, Thomas Jefferson Roby, buried in? That would help in determining which newspaper microfilm to search. Although I appreciate your offer for reimbursement I only do this when I am going to be in the library anyway. At age 79 I donít get there as much as I once did.

In the 1900 and 1920 census records Thomas Jefferson Roby was in North Creek Township in Lincoln County. The link below is to the names of property owners in 1903. Scroll down to North Creek Township. Then click on the name North Creek Township. You will see the names and where their property was. I saw F. W. Roby, which I think was Frank W. Roby, T. J. Robyís son.

You will probably recognize many of the property owners. In about the middle of the township map is the name of a small community named Arlington. The F. W. Roby land was about 2 sections to the west. For about 35 years my father was the minister of the small Methodist Church located in Arlington. I am familiar with several of the names in North Creek Township, including the Fouquets.

What was your motherís name before marriage? Maybe I knew her, or at least her family. I graduated from Prague in 1947.
