John McGill and Doshie Bell Snow married 11 October 1925 in Daisy, OK. Doshie Bell SNOW McGill b. 24 Aug. 1909 in Redden, OK and d. Apr. 26, 1971 in the McAlester, OK Hospital. After her death, John was moved to his daughter's home in TX. John d. 10 December 1973 in TX; also their son, J. D.

John and Doshie have a flat rose granite double tombstone with engraved flowers and leaves on the side. No other inscription. Known children to this couple are seven; four sons, J. D., Billy, Jimmy Lee, and Frankie Dean; three daughters; Mary Kathyrn Ketcherside, Allie Mae [Mrs. Howard Bowen], and Joyce ? [Mrs. Don Knight].

Jimmy, Mary, and J. D. are buried in the same row as their parents. They are in the upper right corner of the Redden cemetery near the fence line. There are Snows buried nearby, I suspect they are related to Doshie Bell Snow McGill

Jimmy Lee McGill: spouse-Erma; 3 children-Gloria Lee, Jimmy Randall "Randy" and Kimberly Dianne: He is buried beside his parents and sister, Mary K. Ketcherside. Deer statue on his grave. Flat grey granite with two flowers engraved in the corners.

Mary Kathryn (McGILL) Ketcherside; former spouse: Joe Ketcherside; Children: four-J. B. Ronald Lee, Jimmy Ray, and Mary Jo; Mary is buried between her brothers, Jimmy and J. D. McGill. Upright slant pink granite tombstones with one vase. Inscription: "Gone But Not Forgotten"

J. D. McGill never married; deaf mute; died in TX, buried beside his sister, Mary K. Ketcherside. Upright tombstone with two vases engraved with flowers. Inscription: "Nestled In Arms of Jesus"

Charles H. McGill (Jul. 5, 1929 - May 5, 1930), who is buried in Redden; might be a child. I believe Mary Snow is Doshie's Mother.
