I want to think all the nice people who have answered my Oxford Plea.
My R. L. (Lee) Oxford is found in the 1900 census of Erath Co. with Wife
Fannie (Pope). Lee was born in 1865 in Ga. There are two sons William Lamin
born 1887 GA and Walter Born 1890 in Ga.
The family story goes that R. L. was killed by a man named Trammell. Walter
avenged the death by killing the Trammell fellow. I suppose the family left
the county for this reason. They show up in Hot Springs Ark by 1908. I have a
picture of the two young men dated 1908 saying on the back that it was taken
in Hot Springs.
I believe the mother Fannie had and aunt or aunts living in Hot Springs,
Garland Co. at that time. Which could account for that choice.
Does anyone having Trammell connections remember a story like that?
Are there archives at the newspaper or library where there might be a record
of this event?
Who were R. Ls. parents. What connection did he have to the Oxfords living in
Erath at the time. They were mostly decendents of Able Oxford from Washington
Co. Fayetteville and Goshen Arkansas area.
I am just full of questions. Thanks again for everyones help. I still need
