We are looking to find the children of Grandma Coetta's oldest son, Ronny Kay JACKSON, of Beggs, Oklahoma. Ronny married living HENDERSON. They had two boys that would be in their 40's now and one daughter who was very young when Uncle Ronny past. Mom (Marita) and Uncle Ronny were raised by their Great Aunt Mary North. Who they belived was their Grandmother, in Gage Oklahoma. Mom(Marita) was born in 1942 and Uncle Ronny was born in 1937. One of Mom's favorite stories to tell was of going to the swimming hole on hot summer days, and catching toads. We have many memories of going to Uncle Ronny's home in Beggs and getting to see the cattle and eating Google peanut butter and jelly for the first time. Uncle Ronny and the boys made a trip to visit us once in Indiana at Grandma Coetta's house, we still have a few family photo's .

Eldringhoff, Bandy

Still looking for anyone who might have information on the BANDY- ELDRINGHOFF family. Anyone with family records or even family stories would be of help. We know little about our Mother side of our family and would enjoy hearing from anyone in this family line. Lucinda Eldringhoff married Herman Bandy 02 Nov 1904 in Howell Co. Mo., Herman may hav been 19, born in Nov of 1885. To this union they had seven children, Helen, Chole, Stella, George, Guy, Henry, Irvin. What information we have been able to retrive has been very thin. We have some information on places this family may have lived like, White Church, Mo., West Plains, Mo., Deer Trail, Co., Gaga, Ok., We came across an obituary for Helen Bandy Barnes ( our Great Aunt ) who married Francis C.( Frank ) Barnes, our Grandfathers stepson, from his first marriage to Ruby Melissa Barnes-Bandy.
