Re: FORD Family History

The cemeteries I cited are those that are in or near either Idabel or the Bokhoma area. Denison cemetery is the "big" Idabel cemetery. Canfield cemetery is slightly to the southwest if Idabel. Bokhoma community is almost non-existant (which would be challeneged, of course, by those that still live in the area), but they do have their cemetery available for transcribing ... which I also checked. Haworth is the larger community slightly northeast of Bokhoma, and I checked their cemtery. The Redland cemetery I found the majority of the Ford's is also a smaller community, but with people still living within it. It is located slightly north of Haworth. Note: Haworth, Redland, and Bokhoma (etal) are located to the east of Idabel and near the Arkansas border.

I expanded my search to check basically all the cemteries for which a transcription is currently available, but failed to locate a Hugh Patrick or Patterson Ford. I did find a few more Ford family burials though, those being:

Lukfata cemetery (west of Broken Bow)-
Ford, Odie 8 Aug 1890~31 Jan 1976

Eagletown cemetery (east of Broken Bow, on the Arkansas line)-
Ford, Bernice 14 Feb 1924~30 Oct 1930

Wright City cemetery (west of Idabel, and northeast of Valliant)-
Ford, Mary C. 31 Dec 1869~5 Apr 1946

I will keep my eyes open and add this name to me list of names to be mindful of. There is a large cemetery in Valliant (on the line with Choctaw county) that has not been transcribed as yet. The library does have a list in their genealogy section and when next I can visit there, I will check that cemetery.

Have you checked any of the census reports for McCurtain County in 1900, 1910, 1920 and 1930? If so, let me know what census districts you find them listed as that can better assist me in fine-tuning my search parameters.

Until then ... I wish you well in your research.
