I came across your site after a google search and am excited to explore your many treasures. I am a direct descendant to James and Wealthy Widener of Cleveland, buried in the Dixie and Bear Creek Cemetery, through their eldest son John D. who is also buried there. I understand that there was a family album that supposedly burn in a house fire that contained pictures of John D. outside of his butcher shop with an Indian Chief, as well as many other wonderful photographs taken when the area was first being settled. I donít know of any relations living in the area, although there appear to be Widener descendents in Pawnee County. My father, living in Illinois, and I are trying to plan a trip to visit the area and find the old homestead and oil wells. Thank you for maintaining this site and for providing the local history for us the enjoy.

My family lived around Pawnee from approximately February of 1891 until February 1899. James and Sarah Murray. James passed away on 11 February 1899 and I believe he is buried in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery.

Jim.. we look forward to seeing you when you come. Jerome Hill comes to Pawnee every month or so to tend to his brother, Kearny, and Folk (Bernice and Kearny, Sr)'s house. Not sure if you're related to those Hills but if you are, it would be neat to time your visit to his!

WOW..congratulations Julie.. I hope you can make it to Pawnee! Thanks for posting about the book!

I was given my great, great, great grandmother Bessie May Hooper's memory album by my great Aunt Frances Hooper-Beckelhymer. Bessie May received this memory album from Fern Tansey on December 26, 1903 in Pawnee, Okla. I hope to see Pawnee some day.

My family made the run and settled in and around Pawnee. No direct relatives there now, but I plan on coming to visit soon just to see what records are there.

Love your museum. Spent quite a bit of time there a number of years ago researching Gilmores. Everyone in Pawnee was wonderful. My father grew up there. Had hoped to get back, but haven't had the chance. Maybe soon.

Is that crazy ole Gladys Kitchens still there? I'll bet she'll never figure out who this is.

I visited Oklahoma last Oct and luckily found the Historical Society. I have started researching he Ripley, Pennington and Hoaglan families in Oklahoma/Kansas/Missouri and Pawnee in particular and the members there in the society were very helpful.

Hi Margarette,

Thanks for writing.. we look forward to hearing from you and your relatives.. the costs of most research are tiny.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this site by just entering "Pawnee" in the search engine. I was looking for Pawnee information after I discovered that my great-grandfather's brother, Thomas Ponds and his wife Minnie Curtis lived in Pawnee in 1930 and 1935 before moving on to California, so I have been looking for more about them for at least the last 30 years. Soooo I will be sharing the resource with the relatives who can afford to pay whatever fees are involved..
