Abernathy's, Oklahoma

Clifford, I believe, is my grand-dad Charles O. Abernathy's brother. I have many pictures with all of those people in them. My family is from Altus Oklahoma. Charles O. moved there from New Mexico. His son, my dad, Daniel Marion Abernathy was born in New Mexico, too. Charles and Clifford's dad was Daniel Marion Abernathy (my dad being named after him) 1-22-1842 to 6/19/1914. He is buried in Lakewood, NM.

Minton Family

I have been trying to research my fathers side of the family and came across this website while typing in the Minton name on Google. I saw The Minton family photos from Oklahoma and wondered if these photos could be of my ancestors. I do know that my grandfather died in Oklahoma City Oklahoma in 1957. I do not know if he had re-married after he and my grandmother Hilda Russell divorced in Indiana.
My grandfather was JOSEPH MINTON, b. September 22, 1909; d. June 1957, Oklahoma City, OK
His Father and mother were:
EDWARD MINTON born February 11, 1874, and died August 1959
They were married May 12, 1895 in Orange County, Indiana.

Their Children are:
THOMAS MINTON, b. July 23, 1898.
ISOM FLOYD MINTON II, b. December 17, 1899;
ROSCOE MINTON, b. November 05, 1901; d. July 04, 1984,
OPAL MINTON, b. October 1904; d. California;
BENNIE HAROLD MINTON, b. December 13, 1906; d. Paoli, Indiana;
JOSEPH MINTON, b. September 22, 1909; d. June 1957, Oklahoma City, OK; (my grandfather)
LILLIAN MINTON, b. October 09, 1914; d. DeSoto, MO;

My grandmother was Hilda Russell. They had 3 children: Joan, And Twins Joe & Jack (my father)

That is all I know of him since he died about 11-12 years before I was born. I see some resemblence to my father and aunt in the picture of Mother Minton. Anyone who has any information or any more photos I wou;d love to hear from you to try and figure out if this is my family or not.
