Bertha is the daughter of Jesse Franklin McKinnon, b. 03-10-1903 Three Creeks, Union County, AR and Mary Esther Emerson, b. 05-13-1905 Shuler, Union County, AR.

I have info on some siblings and further back on Lulu.
It's always good to meet another cousin.=)
Re: McKinnon, Cameron, Keeling, Cottrell
I had that Elijah's name was Elijah Winford, and that Laura's name was Susan Laura. There were some other differences. Plus, I have some dates and full names that you apparently don't. If you'd like, I can send them to you, or post them here.
Thank you so much for your help.
