1920 burial Picher, OK

Thank you so much for responding to my post. Unfortuntely I do not have a famly name for "Gypsy". She was a vaudeville performer and judging from the photos I have of her and knowing the date of birth for the vaudeville performer/blues singer that Gypsy was understudy to, I have estimated that Gypsy was born circa 1885-1895. Some of the photos identify her as Gypsy Smith but I don't know if that was her stage name or if Smith was her actual surname.

I can easily rule out three of the names you provided (they are just too old). In the next few days I will get to the Oklhaoma Historical Society and check for Martha Fitzgerald who died 2-6-1920 and see if I can find further information on her. Could you provide me with the name of the newspaper in which M. Fitzgerald name appeared.

This gives me a glimmer of hope. Again, my appreciation.
