I knew Seburn and Estelle Coker in Oakdale, La. If I recall correctly they had 2 daughters and a son. They were relation to my aunt Vernia (Strother) Richmond. I am from Oakdale but live in Calif. I can't help with what you are looking for but thought I would let you know I knew them. Ottis

Thank you for your reply. Estelle Coker's madian name was Strother (Oakdale). her dads name was Zachary(not sure of the spelling) Strother. Seburn and Estelle had 6 boys, two of which (elton and seburn jr died very young. The others were Arthur (my father), Howard, JC, Jimmy Ray. They had 2 daughters Helen and Doris. Arthur, Helan, Doris and JC are the only one alive. Would you happen to know Seburns mothers name? I know his fathers name was Sidney.

Please email me @ findcoker@yahoo.com

Thank you.

No, I'm sorry I don't know Seburns mothers name. I knew all the kids that you mentioned. Most of the generation older than me has died and there aren't alot of people to ask anymore. I live in Calif so I rarely see see the Oakdale people. I will ask my brother when I talk to him. He still lives in Oakdale. Sorry!!

Hello Ottis,

I was wondering if you knew my husband's COKER family when you lived in Oakdale. My husband's father was Lonnie COKER, b. 1916 in Oakdale. He had a brother, Lee, b. 1921, and a sister, Mildred, b. 1919. I'm not sure if Lee and Mildred were born in Oakdale. Their parents were Lee Coker, Sr. and Mattie FOYIL (FOIL) Coker.

I've been trying to establish a connection between these COKER's and the STROTHERS and WILLLIS' but so far have been unable to do so.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Ruth,
I was wondering if you had information on a Synthy Coker, daughter of John Coker and Rosaline Snoddy and wife of Duriman "Dew" Buxton?

Also, I noticed you were trying to link the Coker's, Strother's and Willis'. I also have Strother's in my lineage. My great great grandfather Valentine B. Buxton was married to Sophia Strother, daughter of Francis "Frank" Strother I and Mary Willis. All of the above folks lived in Louisiana, as far as I know. Just wondering if you had any info on any of the ancestors?

Happy Researching
Donna Blaisdell

2. Mary Hettie COKER, b. 1877, LA
3. Willie COKER, b. 1880, LA
4. Lennie Etta COKER, b. 1884

Possible child of Alphin 'Charley' and Nancy (BOZEMAN) COKER

My husband, Richard is the son of Lonnie COKER, b. in 1916.

Alphin 'Charley' COKER is in Union Parish in 1910 living next door to his son, Willie COKER. Have been unable to locate any of the family in the 1910 census. In 1920, Lee and Mattie COKER are in Allen Parish and Mary Hettie has married Charles Leslie MORGAN and lives in Houston.

Hi Ruth, thanks for the info on your Coker's. All I have is Synthia Coker born April 17, 1861 in Avoyelles Parish, LA, daughter of John Coker and Rosaline Snoddy. She Married Duriman "Dew" Buxton August 25, 1885. She died February 27, 1944 in Oakdale, Allen Parish, LA. I believe they had 6 children. I really haven't done any research on the Coker's. Like I said before, I am researching the Buxton's, and the Coker's, Strother's, Willis', Johnson's and Doyle's keep popping up in my research. If I come across anything, I'll let you know; hope you will do the same.

Donna

Donna,

I have a Family Group Record with research done by Odessa Willis House. I sent her a query on GenForum but never heard from her. If you are interested in her information and don't already have it, I will be glad to send it to you.

Also, there is quite a bit of WILLIS information online which I will be happy to direct you to if you haven't already found it. I'm not sure, but I think I have the census records for John and Rosaline COKER and maybe Dew and Sinthey BUXTON. Let me know what you need.
