Willis Wade

Willis Wade was my great-grandfather, a full blood choctaw. I need more info on him. I think he was born about 1885 and died about 1921 near Marlow, Ok. I was told that he was shot and killed on his own front porch by a white man. His roll# is 13359. I am not sure who his parents are or his sibblings, place and date of birth or exact place and date of death. I have been trying to locate his place of burial but there are no records of him in the Marlow cemetery. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

results are mixed on that one. i explain where i get the information in each post.

who were his children? who was his spouse? there isn’t enough information to find him. although i can see his roll #, i don’t know which family group he belonged to.

there is more than one person with this name.

I have so far that Willis Wade Choctw Roll #13359 is buried at Marlow, Ok cemetery on 1-5-1919. He married Jane Gibson Wade Chickasaw Roll # 1173. They had at least 2 children- Gilbert Wade and Stanford Willis Wade who is my grandfather. I have copies of land records where Willis had alloted land in Indian Territory signed by Green McCurtain on 6-5-1907. This land was in the Chickasw Nation. I have no birth date for Willis or who his parents were or if he had any sibblings. I have looked in census records and can find nothing. Please help if you can! Thanks!
