      I've been told that there were mysterious happening when James Soper (at age forty) died. His cattle were stolen and many other things. They family thought he may have been poisoned or something. James lived alone (never married) and was a long, long way from his family, in miles. His death certificate shows cause of death as typhoid fever.

      from: Our Immigrant Sopr (Soper) Family and their Descendants, by Berniece Lebeda Brown, 1976.

      James Soper was born in Czechoslovak, February 17, 1882; died at his home in Cotton county Oklahoma November 14, 1922. At ten years of age he came with his parents to Oklahoma. He grew to manhood in his parental home five miles north of Garber. In 1907 he secured a claim in Cotton County where he began farming in 1910. He continued to live on the farm until his death. His death came so suddenly that only two of his family, AB and MM Soper were able to reach his bedside while life still lingered. He was a good man, a loyal citizen and a friend to the poor.
