I am trying to locate any relatives of: Lena May, Kitty Lee(Kathryne) or Jesse Leroy Feltz. Their parents died in Tyro on November 6, 1915. I have a copy of The Tyro Truth dated Nov. 12, 1915 which covers the death of their parents & brother. These children were my grandfathers first cousins. We have no idea what happened to them. The paper states that their uncle, S.N. Feltz took care of funeral arrangements. It also states that the funeral was held at the M.E. church and they were buried at the Point Cemetary. Mother & son were put in same grave. Parents were: Preston H. Feltz & Mary Etta Woody Feltz. Their son was named Nelson. He was nine years old. Since there are still some Felts in Coffeyville I think there might be a connection. I would appreciate any input! Preston Feltz was U.S. Marshall for some time.
