Well, folks I'm going to post her maiden name as Huhn but I will also post
it Hoon, as it appeared on the marraige certificate.
Thanks everyone for all the help.
> The July1984 Izard County Historian has part 2 of the autobiography of
> J. Orville Cheney who married Alma Gillihan. On page 30:
> " On June 27, 1931, during the early part of the depression, I married
> Alma Marie Gillihan. Alma's father was Ed Gillihan and her mother was
> Eva Huhn Gillihan. The Gillihans were of English or Irish discant but
> I have no idea where their ancestors came from. Eva Huhn was of German
> descent - Mrs. Gillihan's father came from Germany."
> So according to this article the name is HUHN.
