9755. Elva Boen

RESEARCHER: Information set to T.Mason on 18 Jun 2006 by Becky Roberts. "Permelia had two children living in the 1910 census, Marah Bell died in 1890. Dr. Boen just brought Elva home in 1903 and told Permelia she is your new daughter. She didn't like grandma for a long time. But, in the 1910 census she was listed living with them under the name of Plpha Holland and that story is a very long one. Too long of a story to explain in a email."


Ona Franklin Coger

Information from Becky Robert to T.Mason on 17 Jun 2006. "Ona and Elva met at a Teacher's Examination in Clarksville, Ar. Ona was from Huntsville and that is where they were married and lived a very short time with his family. Ona received a $1500 stock bond from his biological mother and him and Elva moved to Clarksville and bought a chicken farm. The chicken farm burned after a few years. Ona was a strong supporter of the Democratic Party and Elva's father Albert Boen was a strong supporter of the Republican party. After the chicken farm burned Albert was able to get a job for Ona through his political connections as a Postman in Booneville, AR and so Ona and Elva along with the two sons moved to Booneville. Albert warned Ona NEVER to divulge that he was a Democrat because there was a Republican President in office when he worked for the government and would probably lose his job if they found out he was actually a Democrat."

Ministers License Haskell, Latimer & Le Flore Counties Ok.
1875 to 1941
W. H. Mason 3-6-1927 Quinton, Oklahoma Book 1 Page 201

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason on 16 Jul 2006 from Larry Mason. "As I was told by my mother that he was a rounder in his younger days. After he got married he became a ordained minister in the Baptist church. I loved to hear him preach but I also hated to go hear him. I can remember his sermons being in excess of an hour. Still he had plenty of wind to keep on going. People in the audience would become restless for being seated for so long and he would finally stop. I can remember as a young boy going and staying with them. He would say the blessing for so long the food would be cold. Grand Ma would break in and say Harrison you can go on but I have to eat. And she would."
