The Recollections of Harney Shultz
(an excerpt from The Recollections of Harney Shultz
from his daughter, Emma Zell Shultz Knighton)

   In April 1889, Oklahoma was opened up and I went to Oklahoma. I went on a train. I was sitting straddle of the back coach when we went in April 22, 1889 at 12 o'clock. The train stopped at Guthrie and nearly all of them got off and ran for town lots. There was 3 of us that tore out down the railroad looking for land, not knowing where we were going. All three of us got claims 1 1/2 miles Southeast of Guthrie. I hold out on the claim about a week before I sold it for $50.00. The Indians crossed it every evening. One night I had cooked me some supper. I never slept near the fire because I figured if some one came along they would look for a person near the fire, so I went back in the woods. I had a big pistol around me and I had been asleep when I was awakened by a terrible noise. I thought it was some kind of wild animal. I jumped up running and reaching for my pistol. It had slipped around and I fell over a log and an owl flew away!
   Then I sold my claim (a claim was 160 acres) I bought a horse that I had no business with. The reason I sold my claim was to buy a river bottom claim for $100.00 The fellow who bought mine waited a week, until he got his title, before he paid me and by that time those claims went to $500.00 and I didn't have that kind of money, A married man had to live on a claim. A single man had to show some improvement and stay on the claim part time.
