I am in search of any info. on Emma Evaline (aka: Eva) Skidmore(my gr-grandmother)b. 1882 in AR. d.1951 in Sapulpa, OK. On the 1910 Census of Haskell Co., OK., Stigler CIty 1-WD Twp., HH #267-271:

Dovey Pruitt, dau., f, w, 3/12 mos, single, OK, MO, AR. (Verified - Heritage Quest)

Marriage 1
John James Pruitt b: 25 OCT 1873 in Missouri
Married: BET 1900 AND 1902 in Oklahoma
Children
Minnie Lola Pruitt b: 1901 in Oklahoma, IT (Indian Territory)
George Earl Pruitt b: 1903 in Oklahoma, IT (Indian Territory)
Christopher Samuel Pruitt b: 14 APR 1905 in Brent Community, IT (Indian Territory) {Brent no longer exists, it was located on the north side of the Arkansas River about 7 miles south of Salisaw, OK
Harvy Austin Pruitt b: 1908 Oklahoma, IT (Indian Territory)
Dovie Pruitt b: 1909 in Oklahoma, IT (Indian Territory)

Marriage 2
Unknown Newport
Eva remarried late in life to Mr. Newport.

Eva had at least two brothers that I am aware of: Lorenzo Dow Skidmore and James Silvester Skidmore. The only name that I have for her mother is "Fannie", I don't know if it was a nickname. I have no given name for their father.
Family information has it that her children are native american (one of the tribes in the current Five Civilized Tribes of the Cherokee Nation). I don't know if this heritage would have come to them through Eva or John Pruitt's maternal line of Missouri Ann Johnson.
