I think Walter Benjamin Coburn's parents may be John Coburn Feb 1861, born in Iowa and SadieCoburn Jan 1867 born in Illinois. They had 6 children: Edmond, Jennie, Johnie, Raymond, Ira, and Walter. Not sure if this is the right family, but it is the only listing of Walter Coburn on any census in Oklahoma. [[[[ I have doubts about this. I think his mother was Cynthia]]]]]

[[[[This seems likely Walter B(enjamin) lived in Lake Providence, but his mother did not live with him - he was blind and was unable to take care of himself let alone his mother. His brother, Dave, lived in Bastrop along with other relatives. Years after Walter died, Willie Etta married Dave. Dave died in Bastrop]]]]

His parents are Walter Benjamin Coburn born in OK, and Willie Etta Smith born in OK.
Siblings: Archie, Theodore, Frannie,[[[[[Fannie]]]] and Corbett. Archie served in the military (I have a picture of him in uniform with a woman named May--dark complexion, black burly hair just past her shoulder, significantly taller and broader built than he was--but not fat, he appears rather small.) [[[[ Archie was nicknamed "Shorty" because he was short. He was muscular. He was in Signal Corps of US Army during WWII. After the war he married Beulah. May ? must have been a girl friend]]]]] I have pictures of 2 little boys together in 2 different pictures Bobbie and C.B. [[[[I am the C.B., Bobby is my brother - I would like to see the pictures]]]] I have another picture of Bobbie as a little boy playing with 3 puppies (very light blonde hair. I have a picture of Marie coburn (not sure who she is either) [[[[Marie is probably wife of Theodore - I could verify the picture]]]]] I have a picture of LaurelCoburn [[[[I have never heard of a Laurel Coburn]]]] (and a separate one of Corbett that appears to have been taken at the same place on the same day.)
