  • Several genealogies give Donna's full name as Mable Donna Jean Palmer.  I have not seen any documentation.  Oklahoma vital records are not available online, but the State makes them available only as paper documents on a fee basis.  The date of Donna's marriage to Chester Mearl Cox is also reported by several genealogies, but no source is reported, even family sources like Bibles of personal knowledge.  The date of marriage is reported as 6 Oct 1945 in Anadarko, Caddo County, Oklahoma.

    A very full family tree is provided from family sources by Donna and Chester's niece, Billi Jean Cox, with an extensive set of family photos.
