Other facts


Married Dora Lee LUTTRELL


  • On the birth certificate of Robert Dennis' daughter in Seytmour, Texas, Robert reports his place of birth as Brady County, Oklahoma.  There is no Brady County, Oklahoma.  The place would be either Grady County, or Brady, a town in Garvin County, near Grady County.  At the time of his birth, this was Pickens County of Chickasaw Nation.

    Residential information for Robert Dennis' family places them in Pontotoc County for the 1910 census.  But Pontotoc ran across the north of Chickasaw Nation, and expanded to the southeast in a jagged boundary with Pickens County.  Chickasha, the county seat of current Grady County, was right at the boundary between Pickens County and Pontotoc County, Chickasaw Nation.  But current Grady County, Oklahoma includes parts of both old Pickens County and Pontotoc County, Chickasaw Nation, in the northwest corner of the Nation.

    There is a 1940 record in the Augusta, Georgia, City Direcotory that matches Robert and Dora, but thery we also enumerated in the 1940 census in Baylor County, Texas, where they had lived since their marriage.  So it is not certain this is the same couple.
