Looking for any information on John Wesley Beason born about 1905 in Indiana. Married  Iva ( Ivy ) Deloris Joyce Burruss born 1919 in Tulsa Oklahoma about 1934. Lived in Bartleville, Oklahoma in 1934 - 1936. Had 1 child a son John Henry Beason born June 6, 1935 in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, with  Iva Deloris Joyce Burruss. Divorced soon afterward. This is my father's father, l heard that they only saw each other once after the divorce, in the early 1960's. Any help would be appreciated,  i've  never known any of my Beason or Burruss relatives other than my father's mother. Neither she or my father ever spoke of their families.  Please help

My Ivy Deloris Joyce Burrus was born 1919 in Tulsa Oklahoma and died in San Diego  California in 1984. So this can't  be her. Thanks though.
