P.D. Harraway born 1857 in Alabama.

I came to Pauls Valley, Oklahoma in 1900.  I am now working for Sam Kendall, who owns a grocery store.  I use to nurse him on my knee back in Alabama.   He came here right after I did and he went into the grocery business.  I just hired my own self as clean up man.  He can't fire me.  If he did I wouldn't quit. 

I built me a house in the south side of Pauls Valley.  My house was the first one there at that time but today it is known as part of Negro town.

I haven't much to tell about this country.  I was a hard working Negro and stayed at home.

Never have been arrested in my life.

I am now 80 years old and still working for Mr. Sam Kendall who I use to rock on my knee back in Alabama. 

I have lived at my present home for 36 years.
