I am really lost on who John's parents are. He is in the Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory in 1900; He is in Atoka Co., OK in 1910; He is in Coal Co., OK in 1920; and in 1930 he is in Hamilton Co., TX. His daughter Marretta Marie b 1903 IT(OK) m 1920 Leonard Williams OK, d 1936 CA in an auto accident, is my gr-grandmother. She and my gr-grandfather L Williams divorced when my grandmother was very young, and then had the accident before my grandmother could know much about her family. On John's death certificate, his daughter Millie Phipps Stanley is listed as the informant. She states that his father is J M Phipps, b KY and mother unknown. In 1870 the only John M Phipps in any census that I can find that is 8 yrs old is listed in the same household that has a John M Phipps age 35 b KY in Salyersville, Magoffin, KY and this John is listed in the 1860 Licking Station, Magoffin, KY Census as Martin Phipps. Is this the correct family, or am I in error in my thinking? I really need help to figure this one out. Thanks, Liza
