Since Coy Cortez was born in OK I tried the OK census, love the less common names.

1910 census Carter Co, OK:

Oxford, James R., h, 42, M(1) 23 yrs, b TX, IL, MO
" Mary E., w, 41, M(1) 23 yrs, 6 lvg ch, b GA, GA, GA
" Thomas J., s, 20, sgle, b TX
" Jesse J., s, 15, b TX
" George F., s, 10, b OK
" Cortez, s, 5, b OK
" Ila E., s[sic], 3, b OK
" John H., 21, hd, 21, b TX
" Margrette, 19, wf, b AL, AL, AL

1880 census Red River Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Jno. C. OXFORD Self M Male W 47 MO Farmer MO TN
C. Ellen OXFORD Wife M Female W 47 MO Keeping House KY VA
Jessie C. OXFORD Son S Male W 15 TX Laborer MO MO
James R. OXFORD Son S Male W 11 TX Laborer MO MO
Joe H. OXFORD Son S Male W 8 TX MO MO
Margarette E. OXFORD Dau S Female W 6 TX MO MO

1870 census Cooke Co, TX:

Oxford, John, 35, b MO - no land or personal property listed
" Ctherine, 34, b MO
" Mary W., 14, b TX
" Emily J., 11 b TX
" William J., 10, b TX
" Jesse C., 5, b TX
" James R., 2, b TX
" John W., 2/12, b TX, b Mar

1860 Hopkins Co, TX:

Oxford, John C., 27, b MO - no land/personal 100
" Catherine, 26, b MO
" Mary W., 4, b TX
" Emily J., 2, b TX
" William J., 1, b TX

Apparently John died prior to 1900 census, Catherine is a widow in Chicasaw Co, Ind Terr living with married daughter and family.

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- -- Type in Oxford, John, b 1835 + or - five years, spouse Catherine. Others are working on this line, too. And, they have maiden name for Cahterine and more on her line. Be careful on this site, sometimes there are errors and others just copy, errors and all. See if you can learn sources for their information then you can check it out for yourself.

I don't have a subscriptionn to but on their index Catherine Banning is in Linn Co, MO in 1850, you might try a little searching there for the Bannings.

I went to the Oxford Forum -- -- use the box that says Search this Forum and type in Banning. The submitter knows when and where in TX Catherine and John were married.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
