McCurtain County Populated Places according to the USGS GNIS site


The area we now know to be McCurtain County was once part of a larger district of the Choctaw Nation. The County was named for Green McCurtain, Principal Chief of the Choctaw Nation from 1896 to 1900 and then again from 1902 to 1910.

Though he never actually lived within what is now McCurtain County, the county was named for him and his family (McCurtain's) that included also two District Chiefs and three Principal Chiefs.

I'm willing to do just about any kind of genealogical research anyone wants.
In addition my family lived in Mayes County. They were the Wynns listed there in 1910 and continuing unto current day. I also research the Peckenpaugh family who are from Mayes County. In Cherokee County, where do I even start, my husband's indian ancestors are buried in a cemetery just off Highway 82. His great great great grandfather was an interpreter for BIA when he first came to Indian Territory.
