I guess I mislead you. I was born in Oklahoma, Weleetka, Ofuskee Co. I have always claimed my Okie status even tho I have lived in Texas since 1952. I live in Amarillo, Texas but we have family in OK City, Lawton, Altus, Pryor, and a lot of the Sains and other cousins lived and live in Eldorado, Okla. Which are decendents of Sandford Cabaniss.
I don't know for sure if I spelled it wrong but Cerrogoda, Ark or Cerro Gorda is in Little River Co. This is the info I have. My Grandfather was born in Ultimatula, Ark it is in Sevier Co. My Grandmother Ethel Cora or Cora Ethel Cabaniss was married to Robert Gardner Sain in Cerrogordo, Ark in 1911. She was only 15 when they married. In the family bible it doesn't give where she was born.
I will send you W.P's info on your e-mail addy.
The script from what my Aunt talked about is the pretty script but very hard to read. I bet it was the same that your Mom tried to teach you isn't that interesting?
This is how I have my family listed:
Henri Cabanis-born bet. 1665-1675, LaSalle, Gard, France; d. 1720 Westover
Parish, Prince George Co, Va.(Mother Suzanne)
George Cabaniss, Sr.
George Cabaniss, Jr.
George Cabaniss, III
Sanford W. Cabaniss DOB Dec 10, 1820 DOD Aug 8, 1864 Rutherford N.C.
William Parks Cabanis DOB March 7, 1852 in Talladega County, Alabama DOD 1900's Died in McCurtain Co., Okla killed by a half breed Indian (per my Mom and Aunt) married Lucinda Thompson DOB Aug 15, 1826 DOD Oct 17, 1885 Rutherford N. C.
Cora Ethel Cabaniss Dob April 4, 1895 DOD June 30, 1972 in Altus, Okla buried in Odema Cemetery just outside of Eldorado, Okla. I believe that Grandma Cabaniss is also buried in Odema Cemetery. I guess that would be Mary Elizabeth Brinkley Bradford Cabaniss. Its my understanding that she lived a while with Grandma Sain and Grandpa Sain.
