Marion LAWHON b. in Minnesota about 1857 or earlier?

Folks--

Marion Lawhon is my ggGrandfather and I am looking for information about his ancestry.

Based on his daughter's birthdate, he was probably born by 1857 or earlier, an event that possibly took place in Minnesota(?), according to my gGrandmother's death certificate.

Marion Lawhon's daughter Eliza Rebecca Lawhon married Sidney R. Fraser on 3 July 1897 in Holdenville, Creek Nation, IT, an area which later became part of the state of Oklahoma.

Marion Lawhon and wife Eliza were probably living in Sparta, Bienville, LA during 1877 when their daughter was born;

Where did Marion Lawhon go when his wife Eliza died giving birth to their daughter?

Did he go to Indian Territory?

I welcome any information about Marion Lawhon and his family. Many thanks.


My ancestors in this line are:

1) Eliza Rebecca LAWHON b.27 Feb.1877 Sparta, Bienville,LA,
m. Sidney R. FRASER b.29 May 1875 MO, (Eliza was raised
by her grandmother Margaret "Maggie" FAIR b.1816
Charleston, SC,m.Thomas C.ZYLKS b.1816 Charleston, SC);

2) Marion LAWHON b. unknown date in MN(?),
m. 20 Aug 1874 to Eliza Rebecca ZYLKS b.1857 LA,
d. 22 or 27 Feb 1877 Bienville, LA (Eliza ZYLKS Lawhon
died giving birth to Eliza LAWHON)
