I am searching for the burial and resting place if my paternal great grandparents. The last known record located so far was with my uncle Edward Oleffe's draft registration on June 5, 1918. He registered in Yankee NM, but records show his father living in Mills, Harding NM. From that day on they are lost until youngest daughter shows up in Albequrque, New Mexico at the age of 10 at the Lykins Childrens Home. My grandfather would have been Emile Oleffe and his wife was Belanie Oleffe. Nothing is known about the family, except what I have been able to piece together. All of the first generation and the second generation as well as the third generation are gone, and no one seems to know anything from this genereaton." (The wording and spelling is his.) Any help would be appreciated, Jes Harris.
My grandmother Mildred A. Hein married my grandfather Alexander Brown in Van Houten, Colfax county on 05 Jan 1927. Sometime after 1929 they moved to Roy, Harding County. I believe my grandfather was a coal miner. I know he was in Van Houten anyway. He died in Roy of Brights disease on 29 April 1931. On 02 Jan 1932 my grandmother married Melvin Earnest Linson. Melvin was born in Mosquero on 26 March 1912. His parents were John C. Linson and Edna P. nee Hamill. Two of their children were born in Roy. Melvin Junior Linson 17 April 1933, and Gloria Genevieve Linson on 31 May 1935. Some time before 1937 they moved to Colorado. Melvin's father and mother remained in NM. His mother Edna died in Roy on 4 June 1945 and his father John C. died on 16 May 1954. This is about all I know of this lineage in NM. I am currently doing research on the Linson's. Thank You, Sam Williams.
