Hunting for Today’s Stufflebean Cousins: Mary Frances Stufflebean (1919-1986)

We’ve come to the end of the line, believe it or not! Mary Frances Stufflebean was the last child born to John Henry Stufflebean (his 14th child by two wives!) and Addie Lucinda Belcher.

Mary Frances Stufflebean was born on 19 March 1919 in Noble, Cleveland, Oklahoma. She was the only one of J.H.’s and Addie’s children to marry twice. Her first husband was Nathan Hampton Ketner. He was born in 1915 and died in 1964. They married about 1937 or 1938. Hamp and Mary apparently divorced.

Mary Frances is the other Stufflebean sibling for whom I have no known photos.

She married (2) Ralph Leonard Veal on 1 September 1954 in Oklahoma. Ralph was born in 1917 and died in 2002. This family lived mostly in Norman, Cleveland, Oklahoma.

I believe that Mary Frances had at least three children and possibly four, at least one who was the child of Hamp Ketner.

  1. Mary Francis was my mom. I was the youngest of three boys she had with her is husband. My oldest brother is Billy, my next brother is Glen. My mom remarried and had another son Larry with Ralph Veal. He adopted us two younger boys when I was around 16 I believe. I would love the hear all the info you have on our family.
