In Reply to: Isham Sherfield m Nancy Alatha Laxton by Milda Mason of 37

Hello Milda. Iam the granddaughter of Asher Sherfield, His father was James Sherfield. Now the way i was told by my Mom and Aunt was that they had 2 great Uncles named Isham and Ifrem [or]Ethem they are suppose to be the brothers of James Sherfield. I was told by them that Their great Uncles were always in full Indian Head Dress.and was told one or both were Chiefs.My Grandpaw Asher died in 1956 im thinking.My Grandmaw Minnie Ashers wife died in 1982.in oklahoma. The day that my mother and dad were suppose to marry, She told me that she and my dad had to posepone their wedding because either Ishem or Ethem had died and they had to take his boby by buckboard to the burial. Both the boys Ethem and Ishem were burried on the stakes one was burnt and the other wasnt. This is the stories i was told as a child and as an adult. We my[brother] and I have looked everywhere we know to look for a roll number.All the people that were around there that knew the family have all died. Mother and her family lived in Panama,Oklahoma and in Spiro,Oklahoma. Asher and Minnie were married in macintosh county oklahoma. Perhaps James and Ethem,and Ishem lived there as well. I know the family stayed as close as they could. Would love to hear from you .Pat
