Re: Murrin Family, Frisco Twnship, 1920 census

In Reply to: Murrin Family, Frisco Twnship, 1920 census by Bette Sears of 675

I went to the 1920 census and learned that Boyd and Cal had the last name of Craven. Using that, I tried to go backwards to see if I could find them in 1910.

Well ... I was able to find a bit more information but at the same time, found the water was still murky.

In the 1910 census for 3-Twp, McCurtain County, OK I found the following:

Presly, Mary E. 61 TN
Bryer, William (grandson) 19 TX
Cravens, Boyd (grandson) 7 OK (AR/TX)
Cravens, Floyd (grandson) 7 OK (AR/TX)
Cravens, Cal (grandson) 3 OK (AR/TX

Thus, the last name changes from Craven to Cravens but we find the same two as mentioned in the 1920 census ... plus a twin brother cited for Boyd.

I have tried searching the 1900 census reports under both Craven and Cravens, but to no avail as yet. But for some reason or another, the three children of Anne's brother are already living in somewhere other than their father in the 1910 census.

Sorry I can't answer your question at this time, but I will keep looking and digging. Maybe the 1910 information above can help you explore other routes as well?
