I am looking for my great, great, grandfather's lineage, and I have hit a wall. He married an Emma Elvina Fisher, at least they are married in the 1900 census. There is no record of him that I can find prior. His birthplace is listed as Butler Missouri, june 30, 1878. On the census his father is listed as from Ohio and his mother from Missouri, but no mention of their names, and so far I have no birth record for John. His son Silas was my great grandfather, and John lived with Silas, Silas' wife Lena and family in Walla Walla, Washington. I know they lived in Okmulgee, Oklahoma in the early 1900's and moved to Washington in the late 30's early 40's. If anyone has any informationabout this subject I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
