Treasure Chest Thursday – Caroline Flock in Enid, Oklahoma

Caroline Flock is my great-great-great grandmother.  She was married to  John F. Flock and they had 13 children together.  They met and were married in Iowa and later moved to Kansas and then Oklahoma.  Both Caroline (full name Amner Caroline Ramsey) and John F. Flock are buried in the Enid Cemetery, Enid, Oklahoma.

I have found a set of entries for Caroline Flock in city directories at Ancestry.com. In 1926, 1928, and 1931 Caroline is listed as living at 227 W Mulberry Avenue, Enid Oklahoma.  She was listed as the widow of John in all of the entries.  I know that she is living with her daughter, Addie, during this time.  Addie is listed separately in the city directories under her married name, Tharp.  Addie had moved to Oklahoma from Oregon after her husband, Frank Tharp, died.

Using Google Maps and Zillow I believe I have found the spot where 227 West Mulberry Avenue used to be.  The last numbered house on the street is now 225.  Just West of #225, on the corner of West Mulberry and North Washington, there is a driveway that leads to the side yard of 1714 North Washington.  I think that the house used to be on the corner but has since been removed and a new house built facing North Washington.

This is the driveway on West Mulberry.
