City Beginnings in Oklahoma Territory
John Alley, 1939, University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, OK

Quoting from the preface:

     The pages which follow deal only with city beginnings in the area which became Oklahoma Territory by virtue of the Organic Act of May 2, 1890.  This area lies in the central portion of the state of Oklahoma and comprises only six of the present seventy-seven counties of the state.  In fact, three of these six counties are somewhat larger now than they were in 1890, through portions of land added to them from areas opened to white settlement from time to time after 1889, which areas likewise were incorporated into the original Oklahoma Territory of 1890.
