Faughan Family Genealogy Forum
I believe John Mitchell Faughn, b. Feb 11, 1879-d. June 1970 was my great aunt's husband, and had a child, Flornce (tombstone spelling) My great aunt was Tina Melissa Lilly, daughter of Charles Thomas & Amy Parsons Lilly. Both Tina and baby flornce died in 1906 and are buried side by side in Bethel Grove Cemetery East of Sparks, Lincoln Co, OK. This cemetery is in very bad condition and the stones are hard to read. John Faughn (single, b. KS) is listed in Choctaw Twp, OK Co OK in 1900 working as a railroad hand, and is listed just 5 houses from Tina's aunt Melissa Bradley (Mrs. James Bradley). They are on page 3 in the census. My Lilly ggrandparents are listed on page 1 in the same twp. In the 1920 OK, OK census John (age 40, b. KS)is married to Susannah and works for the city. They have a son, William E (born Aug 10, 1907-d.June 17, 1992) John was first married at age 22, which would have been 1901.
In 1930 John (age 51 b. KS) is married to Virgie E (age 39)still OK Co, OK. I would appreciate any further information, and will be glad to share. Helen Cook
