I beleive they moved around a lot. I have not been able to catch up with them....... Name Oscar DAVIS. I have been searching for years for something on him, So I check out every Oscar DAVIS I find (or attempt to anyway) I also check on George DAVIS as his name (Mom said) was George Oscar DAVIS. He died @ 1912 or 1913 in OK. I am trying to accertain where death occured and the location of his final resting place. My George DAVIS (George Oscar DAVIS) married Oma DUNLAP year we estimate as 1905-1906 IT,OK. or somewhere close to Taney Co.Mo. Oma DUNLAP is the daughter of Petter W. DUNLAP and Sallie GREER. George Oscar DAVIS was a WOW member (Mom said). I have not proven that . He died @1912 -1913. and I beleive it to be in McCurtain CO. OK. or Just across the line into AR.

GERMAN posted by Beverly Matthews on Wednesday, August 26, 1998  
There was an Erastus GERMAN homesteaded 80 acres of land in Barry County, Missouri on January 10, 1874. Then Sylvester GERMAN homesteaded 80 acres of land on October 17, 1892. Sylvester German is my ancestor. What is the relation to Erastus GERMAN? Does any one connect?
