My gggrandfather Alfred W. tisdale came to Blackburn, OK. with brothers Lon, Jay and John and made the "run" on horseback.
Lon was the only one to get a place. Alfred(I believe) was the first farmer to rais cotton in Pawnee County. His farm was
south of Blackburn and he reportedly paid $1,000 for it (lots of money at the time). He was a good carpenter and helped
build the old log schoolhouse in East Bend, plus many of the benches and desks. Each parent at the time paid $1 per month
toward the teachers salary. there were 35 students in 1895. Alfred served as a juror many times in Pawnee. He was an
outdoorsman and hunted deer and wild turkey in "indian territory." He died of cancer November 4, 1901 at his home in
Blackburn, funeral services were held in the yard by Rev. Ingerham(?). Believe he is buried at the Blackburn cemetery, along
with many other Tisdales. The following Tisdales were born in Pawnee County: Sylvia Ethel July 20, 1897 Fairy Pearl June 28,
1900 Tessie Opal April 17, 1904 and Wyatt Wayne in Osage County September 20, 1906. I would like to know how to get
confirmation of any of the above as I am trying to qualify as a descendant of the first settlers.
