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.

I am researching my family tree. My family has been in the Pawnee area since the OK land rush. I can trace the Nelsons back to Kentucky but I am stuck there. I thought I would try and work backwards again from OK and see if any other clues pop up. Thanks for having this website.
