History Pages  


These selections from Selections from Morgan County History, Volume I, Sesquicentennial Volume by Helen Price Stacy and William Lynn Nickell are used with the written permission of Helen Price Stacy.

Also included here are articles copied from the papers of Elmyra Royse (Mrs. Dayton Royse) nee Elmyra McGuire. The papers of Mrs. Royse were donated to the Oklahoma Genealogical Society by her son after her death. We of the Lewis, Joslin, Perry, and Hopkins families greatly appreciate all her efforts and many years of research, which included these families. I have spent many months reading and sorting and have come to realize the amount of work over many years that went into them.

I would also like to thank Laura Flebbe of Tulsa, OK for many hours spent copying and then forwarding these papers.
