Octavia Tusant

Luther Township, Oklahoma County, O.T.

Contact:  Sharon McAllister 

This family was Black, and came to this area from the same part of Louisiana as several other early Black families.  We are still trying to determine the relationships among them.

Timeline & Unsolved Mysteries:

On the 1900 census for Luther Township, Octavia Tusant was listed as the Head of Household, widowed, and mother of 5 with 4 children still living. She worked as a clerk in a Dry Goods store and owned her home free of mortgage (from context, most likely in the original town site of Luther). This family remains somewhat of a mystery, as only two of her children are accounted for.  What were the names of the others?  Were any living in the area?
