I am trying to locate a past Mayor of Barnsdall, Oklahoma. His name is Max Simon and it had to have been at least 40 years ago or more! I believe he had a butcher shop or grocery shop in Barnsdall. It has been a long time ago for me. My Grandfather, Max Simon, passed away June 16, 1978 at the age of approximately 95 years.
I am iterested in knowing Mr. Simon's fathers first name if it appears on any paperwork that he may have filled out. I happen to be Max Simon's Grandson. The only thing I know for sure about his being Mayor is that he told me that after he was elected they found out he was not a Naturalized citizen and had to (quickly) correct that oversight!
I seem to remember feeding the chickens with my Grandmother, eating green apples till ill and cutting my finger on my first (illegal so said my parents regarding my age) pocket knife.
Info appreciateciated. Thank you.
