 I was born in 1942 in Chickasha, Grady County OK and raised on Rush Creek,

Garvin County OK immediately  north of the Table Top Mountains.  I attended

Davis in District #47 for eight years, a one-room school; attended both Maysville

and Elmore City High; graduated in the Fall of 1963 from Central State College in

Edmond OK; then I was a science teacher.  

 

My objective in compiling this 1,046-page book, 70% from handwritten

records, was to advance the history of North Texas and Southern Oklahoma. 

The events of the Civil War, especially the interrelationships with all Indian tribes, 

have been under-reported.  I hope that this study will change the perceptions of

the Civil War era in North Texas and Southern Indian Territory.
