Mary J and Virgil had a very good chance of getting to know each other in this small town.

Text:   2006 Virgil (now age 62) is tired of living alone and, on February 27, 1908, marries 55 year old Thaley Steward. Her 18 year old son, Frank lives with them; as does a 27 year old nephew, Will Smith. They are all from Arkansas as well. They appear to be living in the town of Bristow, just down from the jail. NOTE: There is also a marriage record for Virgil Linder and Haley Scroggins on March 7, 1910. Thaley did not die until 1912; she is buried among family and there is no reference anywhere to another wife. I have located a 5 year old Thaley B. Scroggins in Conway County in 1860; this would agree with 55 year old Thaley Steward in 1910. Several Scroggins family members went to Creek County. So after extensive research, I am persuaded that Haley Scroggins and Thaley Steward are probably one and the same. As yet I have no explanation for the two dates, unless it was a legal issue concerning the status of unknown Mr. Steward.

Who was a cousin to Johnnie Linder. The Dollar's and the Linder's had grandmothers that were sisters and were both Berry's. Johnnie Linder was John Lee Linder's son and also a brother to Fannie Rose Linder. This source was "personal knowledge".
