Help Finding Info on Brockways

Posted: 1348080112000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Brockway, Farwell
I am trying to get more information on some of my Brockway ancestors that settled in Oklahoma, but I am having some trouble getting more details. Here is what I know:

James A Brockway (b 1846 in PA)
Wife: Julia (Farwell)(b 1846 Ohio)
Children: Earl (b 1882 in IL) and Sarah (b 1876 in IL)

They appear to have moved out west between 1882 and 1895. I have all of them on a 1895 census from Homested, Kansas. Then there is then a 1900 census which shows them living in Belle, Woods County, OK. However, it only lists James and his son Earl in the household; James is listed as widowed.

So I am presuming Julia died before 1900, but I am not sure when or where. Their daughter would have been old enough to be married, or she could have died before then as well.

I have seen a death date mentioned for James on some trees as being 1904 in Belle, but no one has a source listed so I am unsure how accurate it is.

I would really like to know what happened to the family once they came out west, so any info or suggestions on where to look would be greatly appreciated!
