Centered on present-day Luther, Oklahoma and set up to cover families living  in northeastern Oklahoma Co., southeastern Logan Co. and western Lincoln Co. when this was still part of Oklahoma Territory. It  traces many of these families back to their former homes. Why is it centered on Luther?  Where does the information come from? Should your family be included? See More About This Project


The Sellers family Reunion will be held Aug. 6, 7, & 8, 2004 in Guthrie, OK.  For more information, contact Pat Crawford.  



Information about several cemeteries in the Luther area, including links to online canvasses.  The Valley View Project is a demonstration of Photo Analysis, using examples from the original Valley View section of the present-day Luther Cemetery.

Census Worksheets

Includes an index of the 1900 census for northeastern Oklahoma, southeastern Logan and western Lincoln Counties for the 1900 O.T. census; worksheets comparing data from 1890 and 1900 for part of our study in the Unassigned Lands, and some information from later census records.

Family Charts

Our Family Tree Maker site has just our family lines [Cole, Lovell, Hamilton & Milligan].  The Founding Families section provides basic Family Charts, plus information placing the family in the area, our unsolved mysteries, timelines, and contacts.  Our WorldConnect database includes not only these two groups but also all of the families that were included in any of our previous area studies, now merged into one large database for easy access.      


How to find information here, so far focusing on the use of search engines.


Information about this area before the Land Openings is provided on the Sac & Fox Agency site.

Luther, Oklahoma

   Search Luther Site       powered by FreeFind

The Heart & Hand Site site was set up some years ago to honor the original Women's Club of Luther's First Christian Church, but it quickly grew to include information about other residents of the Luther area.  It still has the early history and photos.

Maps & More

   Search Maps 'n' More       powered by FreeFind

Railroad maps from 1915, County maps from 1972, recent township maps, and lists of places in the Twin Territories and the state of Oklahoma.  These were once part of this site, but have been moved to the OKGenWeb Projects site so Maps & More is an external link.

Migration Studies

Clusters of families either known to have moved to Oklahoma Territory together or who came from the same general area and thus may eventually be connected.

RootsWeb's Cole Site

   Search Cole Site       powered by FreeFind

Our original site was set up many years ago in conjunction with the Cole Mailing List to share information about different branches of the family in hopes that we could connect them.  Most participants have now put their information on WorldConnect, but the area study for northwestern Tennessee and southwestern Kentucky families remains online.

RootsWeb Mailing Lists

These pages support the RootsWeb Mailing lists I administer and include links to help you Subscribe or  Unsubscribe.  The COLE, MILLIGAN, and STANDLEY lists are for those surnames.  The OKTERR list is for those researching the settlers of Oklahoma Territory, while OKTERR-NA is for those researching any of the many Nations & Tribes of Oklahoma Territory (not Indian Territory, because it has its own list).
