I'm looking for info on the SIGMAN family from TEXAS and OK. I have many blanks to fill!
Starting with a group of siblings,late 1850's:

ALONZA (Lon)SIGMAN (b. & d. unknown)this could be George & William's father or brother, not sure which.
GEORGE SIGMAN-b. abt. 1857, MO, d. 1930,Norman OK
WILLIAM DAVIS SIGMAN-b.1858 MO, d.Dec. 1920,Lindsay,OK.
SARA SIGMAN (HOWERY)-b.about 1860,d.abt.1912, OK
ELLA SIGMAN (CAGLE)-b.abt 1862, d. ?
MARTHA SIGMAN ???

GEORGE SIGMAN married ELLEN STARK in Kansas, they had a dau., GRACE SIGMAN. Ellen died when Grace was young,in Kansas. George and Grace moved to Norman,OK. Grace married TOM HICKS, had 2 boys- HENRY LEROY HICKS,b. 1900,& GEORGE EDWIN HICKS,b.1902. Grace and Tom divorced, she couldn't raise boys alone, gave George Hicks to her father , George Sigman, to raise. She later remarried a man named HUBBARD.Grace died in 1930 in FT. Cobb, OK.

WILLIAM DAVIS SIGMAN was married twice. No info on first wife. He married a second time to SARAH ANN(THOMAS)SHIRLEY in Fannin Co., TX, June,1879. She was also married before. She had two dau. from previous marr.- ADA SHIRLEY(MORGAN)b.1877,TX, and MOLLIE SHIRLEY(CRUMPLOR or CRUMLEY)b.1878, TX. William had children from 1st marr. also-

Their children: JAMES,GLEN,VIRGIL,
BERTHA(Dodd),DELLA(Cox), RAYMOND,died

m.WILLIAM BARNETT
MARTHA JANE SIGMAN, b.1890,d.1932,Coweta,OK
m. THURSTON EDWARDS
Some of their ch: JONNIE,WILLIAM,
NELLIE, & LILLIE.

ALONZA(LON)SIGMAN was married twice. No info on 1st wife. He married an Indian woman, possibly Cherokee. They had 2 boys- BUSTER and CLAUDIS. They had a butcher shop and/or store near a hotel(?) in PURCELL,OK.
Alonza's wife left, taking the older child, Buster, and leaving Claudis with ALONZA. That is all the info I have on Alonza.

If anyone out there has ANY info on this family, I would be very grateful for the help!

I have a marr. cert. and death cert. for WILLIAM SIGMAN, my gggranfather. Most of this info comes from George Hicks by way of a letter I have that he wrote to his cousin in 1992 when he was in his 90's. He has since passed away. melmidd@techline.com
