My GF was Thomas Edward McFarland, b.1882 d.1959. His birth town is listed as Choctaw, OK; however for the majority of his married adult life he lived in Shreveport, LA. His parents are listed as Thomas P. & Mary H. McFarland. So far, we haven't been able to "crack the code" on the "P" & the "H." Could this be your Thomas & Mary??
