      When I was born in Oklahoma in the early 60’s, I was the 5th living generation alive. I had one great great grandmother born in 1885 in I.T. and a great grandmother born in Brushound Texas who came across the Red River when she was a young girl. To say my roots run deep would be an understatement. Life was tough back then and I think folks went through a natural weeding process that took out a lot of the weak. I like to think it gave us a lot of folks with back bone and I respect that. I’ve been all over the southern U.S. and there are some nice places, but they aren’t Oklahoma.


      One side of my ancestors came from Illinois/Michigan area to Kansas then about 1870 to I.T. Oklahoma, Other side from Germany n Tennessee to Arkansas then I.T. Oklahoma in 1890’s.

      Both sides was too poor to leave during the 20’s. Moms side lived on allotment land in Pott county near where I landed.

      Dads side was dirt poor sharecroppers, cotton pickers, migrant pickers, squatters, criminals n general low life’s.

        Born and raised here, more than likely die here.
        I've lived other places but I always knew I was coming back here.
        It suits me and I'm suited to it.
