Looking for information on Harriet C. Thurman of Le Flore county, Oklahoma. She was a widow with children Margaret, Lena, Louis, William H. and Lou E. or possibly Leigine. William H. married Willie V. Holland in December of 1910 in Le Flore County. Willie V. (Holland) Thurman died sometime between 1925 and 1930. Need to know where. May have been Le Flore County or possibly across the line in Arkansas. Looking for her exact date of death and a cemetery. Any information would be appreciated. Also, looking for information on the husband of Harriet C. Thurman. Harriet was born in Tennessee and according to the 1900 census, so was her spouse. All the children were born in Indian Territory except Margaret who was born someplace in Arkansas on the way to Indian Territory, apparently.

Hi Gwen,

I hope you get this message. I have been searching for quite a while for someone connected to this family. Harriet C. is Harriet Catherine Gothard. She is my great grandfather's sister. She married William H. Thurman June 23, 1867 in Hamilton Co., TN. William is the son of Alfred and Matilda Thurman. Williams family is found in the following census records:
1850 Rhea Co., TN Census 6th Dist. pg. 303
Alfred Thurman 34
Matilda 28
William H. 8
James J. 6
Thomas A. 4
Mary <1

1860 Hamilton Co., TN Census Dist. 11
Alfred Thurman 35
Mary 37
William 16
James 14
Thomas 12
Mary 10
John 9
Elizabeth 7
Albert <1

I have William and/or family in the following census records:
1880 Census
Prairie Township, Sebastian Co., AR Dist. 183
William Thurman 37 TN
Harriet C. 29 TN
John T. 11 AR
? Ann 9 AR
James 3 AR
Mary E. 1 AR

I haven't located the family in the 1870 census yet. There is a land record where Harriet and William sold the land Harriet inherited from her father, Larkin Gothard. See below:
1/10/1888. Harriet C. Thurman & husband W. H. Thurman to Elizabeth H. Clift. $860. Land, 11th CD, 2nd share in the division of the Larkin Gotham tract, Valley Road corner to George W. Gothard, corner Uin Huldah Gothard. Proved by Harriette C. Thurman & husband W. H. Thurman 1/10/1888. Regd 4/2/1888 Book K3 p. 406.

I would love to share any information you may have on this family and likewise, I can give you lots of info on Harriet's ancestors. Harriet was a complete surprise to my aunts and uncles. They never knew their grandfather had a sister named Harriet Catherine. Harriet was only 13 or 14 years of age when she and William married and not long after they married, I'm guessing, they moved from Hamilton Co., TN. I've been trying for several years to find a descendant so I can fill in the blanks. Feel free to email me directly.
