Cravin AR./TX./OK.

I am looking for a W. C. Craven he may have gone by Cal. He had a sister named annie who married a George Murrin.

According to census in he was born in AR. do not know who his first wife was but they had a child named Nora(h)born in TX. His second wife was Dalia (nee may have been Stanford) and they had his nephew Dee Blair living in McCurtain Co. Ok 1900 census (Indian Territory Township #8.)

I also found him dying in 1907 McCurtain Co. leaving a wife and several small children.His children were Floyd and Boyd who were twins, and youngest brother was Cal. they also had a daughter who died in infancy.

In the 1910 census of same county they were living with their grandmother Mary E. Presley and a cousin Wiliam Bryer.
In Social Security the boys spell their names as Cravin, and claim no lineage to the other Cravens that live in McCurtain Co.
I found their names spelled Craven, Cravens, Cravin.

Nora applied for guardianship of all three boys while married to Frank M. Sears. Her first marriage was to Gibby Durant a haf Choctaw Indian who died about 1910. They had one son Luther Calvin Durant.

Can anyone help me with this family?
