OKLAHOMA COUNTY, OKLAHOMA

Deep Fork Township was on the eastern edge of the Unassigned Lands, which were opened Apr. 22, 1889. The table below shows each of the homesteaders who received a Final Certificate.  Many parcels went unclaimed that day and some of the original homesteaders later canceled and relinquished their claims, so the Claim Date shows when that particular homesteader filed his or her claim and the Patent Date shows when the Final Certificate was issued. 

When known, I've added Race to this chart. There are many cases in which early settlers share a surname but appear to be unrelated, so I hope this helps with the sorting process. A question mark means simply that I have not found the individual on the census and am not in contact with the family so am not sure. 

Names shown in blue have been included in our WorldConnect database with additional information about the family.  Clickable links lead to more detailed family charts on this site.

If you recognize any of these people, please write to Sharon McAllister.
