    Frost-Tugman Marriage

    Ella Bohannon and John "Jack" Tugmon are my Grandparents.  My father was Tom, the second son of Jack and Ella.  He came to Wyoming in 1910 and remained here until his death.  I met Fred and Della as a young teen on a trip to California with my parents.  They were at Zane's house.  I don't know if they lived there or were visiting.

    My father was 6' 2" tall and I was shocked at how small his brother Fred was.  My father told me he was about the size of his father.  My mother's name was Della the same as Fred's wife.  I was a late life child, my parents were more the age of most people's Grandparents.

    I live in Wheatland, Wyoming, were I was born and where my parents are buried.  Also buried here is my sister and brother, both of which were much older then me.  My brother died at 15 years of age before I was born.  I know quite a bit of history on the family and will gladly share what I know for sure and what I certain is fact and any rumors.  There are many rumors.

    I can tell you that I highly doubt that Rachel Tugman and William Frost are related as Thomas Tugmon and Margaret Manning, Jack's parents, were both from Ireland and immiagrated about 1850.  By the way, Jack was the common nickname for John and part of the family spell the name TUGMAN and part TUGMON.  My father spelled his name Tugmon as did his brother George.

    The two different spellings are confused in some of the other offspring of Ella and Jack.  Their children's names were Frankl, Thomas, Geoge, Bill, and Renie.  They had other children that died in childhood but I can't find there names.  I went with my Father to Oklahoma a couple of times and on one visit we visited his sister's grave.

    She had died as a child and my father years lated bought her a headstone and he wanted to see it.  I think we were in Caddo but I'm not sure and I haven't had time to verify here name of grave location as yet.  My father's father, Jack, is buried in Stringtown.  I visited his grave with my father once.

    We were visiting his neice Jessie Snow at the time.  Jessie was his sister Rennie's daughter.  Rennie died a few years back and I can send you more about her if you like.  Ella Bohannon was Choctau Indian.  My father didn't know where she was buried or exactly how she died.

    There is rumor she died in Arkansas with hydophobia.  But I am beginning to not believe it because there seems to be no record of any such happening and that would have made the papers in the town and county and possibly even the state.

    Thomas Tugman's Parents

    I am a direct decendant from one Thomas E Tugman born about 1890.  He married a Della (do not know maiden name).  He had three children Evelynn Tugman, Thomas Tugman and my mother Mary Tugman.

    My great grand father was a Tugman, all I know.  Only hint I have is apparently he married a [Choctaw woman].  She was my grandfather's mother.  He told a story that one day when he was very young a man came rideing in and tried to rape my great grandmother.  She killed him.  Great grandfather took the fall for the murder, because he felt that during this time they would have killed his wife, even if she did kill him defending herself from his advances.

    I know that they are the Oklahoma line of Tugmans.  My mother can remember going to Oklahoma to visit his family as a kid but she does not recall any names.  She also can remember my grandfather telling stories of visiting his mothers side of the family on the Reservation.  I asume the Oklahoma Chacktaw reservation.  But not certain.

    Grandfather was a halfbreed that looked white and he did not realy talk about the Indian side, because of the trouble he had seen it bring on people.
