i am trying to find information for a friend of mine.
his dad logan vanliegh was born 20/jul/1920 in kay ok. he went to chillocco industrail school between the yrs 1925-1938.
his mother was nellie pearl erwin and she died at child birth his father was lester, henry stephen vanliegh.
he died shortly after in the yrs 1923-25.
it was said he was a blacksmith ad taught it at the school.
logan vanliegh graduated and then went to the university of ok with a scholar ship of track.
his son logan vanliegh has looked for over thirty yrs to find logan vanleighs sen parents or any ties at all. now there was a farm in kay county. It was over 400 acres, he was supposed to get when he got out of school. but his uncle charles vanleigh/erwin? lost it in a a stock market rip off. in 1939.
on a delayed birth certi is has his parents names and is sighed by a relative on the erwin side. it says he went to an indain boarding school called harrison. my guess is chillocco because it is in the area and it is connected to the school in penn.
any help would be greatly appreciated.. i have looked on the 1930 census and 1920 in newkirk,kay county, ok and have not found any info either?? i have heard the indains who attend these schools had to change thier names... where could someone find out what their name was before.. thank you so much ginger
