John and Lottie’s extended family

John Courtney married Lottie Hawkins in Rogersville, Tn in 1898.  They moved to Fort Cobb, Oklahoma about 1905.  I believe Gordon was the first child born in Oklahoma.  Gordon was born a twin but his brother died at birth.  John and Lottie had Wash, Clarence, Etta Mae, Gordon and his twin, Ruth, Altha, and Donice.  John and Lottie moved to Falfurrias around 1917-1919 where they and most of the family remained.
