Gordon Oakley and Mary E. Clark were married in Crittenden Co., KY, Jan. 23, 1881. I also have his name as J. S. Oakley. On her step-mother's petition for a Civil War pension she signed an affidavit:
State Of Oklahoma, County of McIntosh,
In the matter of Fannie E.Clark, widow of Wiley S. Clark, H-20- Ky-Inf.
On the 26th day of February A.D. 1919 personally appeared before me a Notary Public in and for the aforesaid County, duly authorized to administer oaths, Mary E. Oakley aged 55 years, a resident of Checotah, in the County of McIntosh and state of Oklahoma whose Post-Office address is Checotah, Oklahoma, well known to me to be reputable and entitled to credit, and who being duly sworn, declares in relation to aforesaid case as follows:
That I am the daughter of Wiley S. Clark, H. 20 Kentucky Infantry; that my mother, Elizabeth E. Clark died in 1895; that my father, Wiley S. Clark married again in 1897 to Fannie E. Cheek, now Clark; that Fannie E. Clark is his second wife, his former and only wife prior thereto being my mother, Elizabeth E. Clark.
I am trying to find out more about this family. Where did they marry? Did they have any children? Did they live in Checotah until their deaths?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
