      The Passing of John Marion Voiles, 81 years of age, a highly respected citizen of Texas county since 1906, occurred at the family home in Guymon last Friday, May 28, following an illness of several years.

  • Notes 
    • I have a death certificate for John Voiles that states his birth date was January 1, 1862, and that he was born in Knoxville, Tennessee.

      I also have an undated note from Nadine Morgan Grant, a prior researcher - granddaughter of William, that "according to obituary William Voiles born Jan 1, 1862, but that was Florus's idea." William was John's twin and whether they were actually born on Jan 1, 1862, they were both consistent in claiming it as their birthdate.
