Samuel Nolen's father was Sam A. Nolen. His wife was named Calvis. I don't know her maiden name. He had two sisters--one was named Mattie Josephine-- she was my great grandmother. He also had a brother named Dewey Nolen.

Mattie had three children--Willie Jewel Barton, Helen Mildred Carathers, and Otis Juanita Johnson. Otis was my grandmother. I would also like more information on this family. Mattie lived most of her life in Oakdale.

In 1910 Earnes was 3 and Bessie was 1. I found that on the census records.
