    Right click and hit save as, as it's a pdf format.
    That's all I could find on the net. Will e-mail you some research links.

    I found this in public records on Google - looks like she married a man named Claude Wayne Teague in 1966.

    Don't know if that's helpful at all, but maybe Lynn County may have other records for her that might help.

    Yes, that's her! thanks so much. That's more info than her daughter actually had, though she thought she might have been married to a Teague, we never knew the rest of the name. Thank you again!

    Thank you, Lanie. My friend was only 11, and was immediatley removed from the family there. So this info was invaluable, as we did not know even where she was buried. I imagine the delay was because it was a murder case. it remains unsolved, but at least my friend now knows where to go to visit her mother. Thank you again!

    Hi Monkalup - I found a couple more things, but I wasn't sure whether it was appropriate to post it on a public board so I sent it to you in PM.

    Hope she is able to resolve this -

    Vintage MSM, from May 1984:

    Assistant District Attorney John Butler said testimony Friday showed the woman was strangled and possibly raped. Authorities said she had also been beaten about the head.

    He said Police Officer Marty Cox testified about a yellow pocket knife found in the woman's bedroom that allegedly belonged to Garner. Cox testified Garner spoke with him the morning after the slaying and mentioned he had lost his knife...

    The victim's nude body was found April 8, 1980, stuffed head-first into the pumping compartment of the well house at her rural residence in the Steeley Hollow community, northeast of here.

    Charges of first-degree murder against "Lucky" Edward Garner, 27, were dismissed by Associate District Judge Lynn Burris, during Garner's preliminary hearing Tuesday in Cherokee County district court.

    Garner had been accused of the April, 1980, strangulation death of 41-year-old Glenda Jones, a resident of nearby Steeley Hollow.

    Assistant District Attorney John Butler said that a former agent of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, who had conducted a search of the suspect's home with a search warrant, apparently misplaced the document and that without it "we had an illegal search."
