Hi Joshua,

Your Tennie, Lillie and Janie Starks (daughters of "Boney" and Elizabeth) married descendants of William C. Childers and his wife Maria (Boots). One of William and Maria's sons were a judge in Indian Territory (Creek Nation) and much has been written about him--Napoleon Bonaparte Childers--father to Ellis B. Childers. Here is his memorial page on findagrave.com/

His parents were mentioned in Tiya Miles' excellent book because her subject matter is of Maria Boots' family: Chief Shoe Boots and one of his wives, Doll. To see excerpts for free, go to google books and type in the title "Ties That Bind--Story of an Afro-Cherokee Family" to be able to do a search for "Childers."

These Childers had many wives (at the same time, as was the tribal custom) and many children. Look for Ellis B. Childers' brief biography below:

Because this is turning into a CHILDERS topic (and we want to keep our board admin happy!) I will continue it later on the CHILDERS surname message board where there is already a "thread" entitled "Oklahoma cemetery - Childers Burial List" at

Lastly, to get this post back on track with the Starks' family, attached is a marriage license and certificate for Boney Starks to his second wife Yamah Lynch in 1912 (see attached).
