"I'm willing to do just about any kind of genealogical research anyone wants.
In addition my family lived in Mayes County. They were the Wynns listed there in 1910 and continuing unto current day. I also research the Peckenpaugh family who are from Mayes County. In Cherokee County, where do I even start, my husband's indian ancestors are buried in a cemetery just off Highway 82. His great great great grandfather was an interpreter for BIA when he first came to Indian Territory."
