Linda, This is For You

Linda, this is your grandma, Johnnie Delma Barham. She was born in 1917 and was the 3rd child of Nancy Pearl Emily Dunn and John Jackson Barham. She had a brother, Z.T. who was born between her and Oleta. He died shortly after birth.
My mother has a lot of good memories about her Aunt Johnnie. As you know she was a wonderful woman and had a great sense of humor.
This photo is from the Olustee School photo. The family lived at Olustee, OK for a short time then returned to Comanche, OK.
Little is known about the Dunn side of the family. Charles Henry Dunn, Johnnie's grandfather was born in Arkansas, Nov. 17, 1867, to James Dunn and Emily Singleton. When Charlie was a toddler his mother married Adam Green Kinder. I'm not sure what happened to James Dunn. Please email me territorymom@gmail.com and I will be happy to send you a copy of Charlie's death certificate.
With love,
Territory Mom
