I am trying to find my great grandmothers parents. Mr. Stevenson was born in Tennessee and his wife was born in Illinois. I have been told Daisy and a brother became orphans when their parents were killed in a horse and buggy accident. Daisy's brother may have died in the orphan home from an illness.
8 Nov 1881 Daisy Edith Stevenson Eurika Springs Arkansas moved to OK shortly after she was born is what I understand.
1890 census I cannot locate her
1900 I found a Daisy Stephenson as a servant. Father born TN Mother born IL, residence Coal Creek, Pawnee, Oklahoma
17 Jul 1904 Married John Richard Wilhite. Garfield, OK
1910 she is married with 1 child, my grandmother Lincoln, Dewey, OK
1920 she is married with 2 children Canton, Blaine, OK
1930 She is married Canton, Blaine, OK
1931 Feb 10 She died at the age of 49 Canton, Blaine, OK
In the orphan home she had a cast iron fall on the nape of her neck causing her spine to curve and stunt her growth. She met and married John Richard Wilhite who was blind from 2 separate accidents.
Any help would be appreciated,
