In Response To: Does Ancestry have death databases for KS and MI? ()
I just checked census info on your family. I saw them enumerated on the 1920 Okmulgee County, OK; Bryan Twp, page 210; sheet 4B: G.W. Gullick and wife Nannie along with children Theodore, Isral; and Navada--next door was son James and his wife Drucilla enumerated as "w" in the race column. It seems as though this family was listed as mulatto; black; and negro also when looking at the 1910 and 1930 censuses.
Next, in 1930 the family was enumerated in Montgomery County, KS; Caney Twp. page 12B: Nannie was the head of household with adult children and her grandchildren. The youngest grandchild was listed as age 5, birthplace Oklahoma.
You should visit the usgenweb.com site and go to Oklahoma--Okmulgee county and Kansas; Montgomery County and search those sites to see what information has been transcribed; local researchers; genealogical societies for additional information--post queries on those sites also.
The state of Kansas does have state census records from 1865-1925 so visit the Kansas State Historical society website (google)to find the roll number for Montgomery county and check with your local library to see if it can be ordered via interlibary loan. By searching the 1925 Kansas state census you can look for your family to see if George W. and others are enumerated or not.
Some--and I stress some Kansas genealogical societies have county death information based on what has been submitted to the state, i.e. what is on file in Topeka, Kansas.(I've been lucky with Bourbon County, KS. They have a death index that goes back to the late 19th century).
I hope this helps.
