Lecompte, Marcelline :

DOB: 29 Dec 1861

Billings Bridge, Ontario

DOD:14 Oct 1920

Bristow Creek, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

BURIAL: 18 Oct 1920

Norman, Oklahoma, U.S.A.

At the time of her death, she was married to her 3rd husband Silliker, William Patrick.

They were possibly living with her daughter & family,

Brulé, Ada Angélina who was married to Hendrickson, Edward Victor.

or

her son, Brulé, Edgar Edmond Napoleon

or

her son, Brulé, Joseph Jean Baptiste

They all lived in Bristow Creek, Oklahoma, U.S.A., working in the oil fields there.

The story goes that Marcelline was buried in Norman, Oklahoma, U.S.A. because Bristow Creek did not have a Catholic cemetery. Possibly buried at Saint Josephs Catholic Cemetery in Norman, OK., but not sure.

I cannot find any records. I don't know what Catholic cemeteries existed in 1920.

Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

It appears everyone immigrated in 1917.

William P & his 2 sons, Marcelline & her son Edmund Bruley were all living together in 1920. Also, at the same house were Edward Hendrickson, wife Ida and their son & daughter.

Randall, I was hoping you would answer. You did so much research for me before. Thank you for this info, it helps. I have sent an email to the cemetery in Norman to see if Marcelline is buried there. Thank you again, it was nice hearing from you.
