About Docia "Doak" Rose (Smith)

Doak was Buck's first wife. They had five children together.

The story told is that Fanny (Sarah Blankenship), Buck's second wife, didn't want Buck's older boys around. About 1900, William, James and Jack left home with the Moss family and headed for Oklahoma. William was 15 by the time they reached Oklahoma. William and James Edgar (Ed) went to work at the brick factory in Ada, OK. Jack may have left Ada and headed for Texas, but this has not been verified.
