    The birth of Maggie in Missouri indicates that Hettie and Robert movedto Missouri for a short time then back to Oklahoma.  Likely Robertdied in Oklahoma.  Sebastian County is across the border in Arkansas.There was a lot of movement of Terrry family members across the borderbetween LeFlore County, Oklahoma, and Sebastian and neighboringcounties in Arkansas.
