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.

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..

Your new website (new to me) looks great. Thanks for including this comment section. My grandfather was in the l893 land rush and helped to draw up the town charter. He was also a Probate Judge in Pawnee and Lt. of the Volunteer company from Pawnee in the Spanish American War. My name is the same as his (as was my father).

In 1895, Charles P. Beck, and wife Fairozina W. (Cameron) Beck, would move to Pawnee County, Ok. "Zina"'s sister Dora (Cameron) Webb, wife to Abraham Webb, was already in Pawnee County, moving from the family home in Girard, Kansas. "Zina" and Charles lived in Section 24 Township 23N Range 4E, for 49years. These ladies are my 2nd great grand Aunt's!

My 2nd Great Grandfather was Bee Dunn who was one four brothers who were bounty hunters around Ingalls, OK in the late 1800's and was killed by sheriff Frank Canton in 1896. Bee Dunn was involved in the killing of two members of the Doolin gang. His sister (my 2nd Great Aunt) was Rose Dunn who was also known as the Rose of Cimarron and was the inspiration for a song by the group Poco. Bee is buried in the Ingalls Cemetery.

John (Johann) Wagner in 1898 settled a Homestead Act 160-acre parcel just east of Jennings, and received a land patent title in 1904. He had come to America in 1876 and filed his "first papers" or Declaration of Intention to become a citizen two years later -- but he misunderstood what that meant, and thought he was a citizen just by that filing. In 1903, when it was time to receive the land patent, it was discovered he'd never completed the naturalization process -- which was done immediately by G.S. Van Eman, the U.S. Court Commissioner in Jennings. Oil and gas were discovered on their property the next year (1904). John's heirs sold the property in 1936 to Glenn J. Smith.
