RJWJCW - 01/19/98 my g-grandparents began a homestead in Pawnee Co. just prior to the 1900 census during a land rush. John White MYERS and a son went to claim homesteads and the rest of John's family followed when the homes were established. They had been over in Eastern Kansas a few years coming from IND. and before that OHIO where John White MYERS was born 1846 (Ross Co). His wife, Sarah Belle Myers also born in OHIO. Two sons were Lewis MYERS and Perry Cale MYERS. John White MYERS and another man, Mr. CLARK started a freight line from Pawnee to Red Rock. John died in 1917 is buried in Highland Cemetery; his wife died 1912 and is buried in Highland Cemetery. His son, Lewis MYERS was killed in a construction accident in 1903--a cave-in of dirt while building the county bridge over Camp Creek, 7 miles east of Pawnee. Would I be able to find anything out about the freight line business? Did they have business licenses in the early 1900's? How can I find the location of the homesteads? Any help would be much appreciated.

Susan McDowell - 09/28/98 My husband’s Great Grandparents met at the 101 ranch in Pawnee County, Oklahoma their names were Mary Elizabeth (Herd) McDowell that came from Missouri and John William McDowell that came from Kentucky. They must have married somewhere around there, because they didn't come to Woodward co. until their second son was born, Charles Osa McDowell, born on the Cherokee Strip, between Pawnee and Woodward co. Also I might add Mary Elizabeth (Herd) McDowell was a cook on the 101 ranch when they met. This would have been before 1896. Also her father's name was John Frances Herd, and he was known as a horse trainer, he broke horses. He lost the bottom part of his arm when a train ran over it. If anyone has any information, about any of the people that worked on the 101 ranch near Ponca City in Pawnee County, please let me know.
Tim Sandberg - 10/19/98 my name is Tim Sandberg; my recently deceased mother was Cynthia Edith Floyer. Since her death, I have become very interested in the family genealogy, and have been doing extensive research on the Internet. There is actually a wealth of information on the Floyer family. They are an ancient Saxon family dating back at least as far as 1086. I have extensive documentation back as far as William Floyer of Floyer's Hayse, Exeter, who died in 1579. While searching for "Floyer" on Yahoo, Terlton Cemetery, Pawnee County, Oklahoma came up. There is a Rachel Lu Ann Floyer, died 1975, daughter of Todd and Marylin Floyer, buried there. The American branch of the Floyer family is completely unknown to my relatives in England, and I would be interested in re-establishing contact. The American branch of the family has been lost for some 300 years.
Ted - 11/09/98 I am looking for any information on Allen Hayden who possibly moved to Cleveland Oklahoma after 1900 from Indiana. His age at that time would have been 49 or 50years.

Jim Chandler 12/14/98 my g-g-grandfather Alfred W. Tisdales 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 teacher’s 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.
