About Bryan Township

Located in the western portion of Lincoln County, bordered on the west by Oklahoma County's Dewey Township, Bryan Township has historically been a rural area, bypassed by all major highways. The Captain Creek community, which never had a Post Office and isn't even mentioned in Oklahoma Place Names, is its most concentrated settlement. If you are researching the old families of Captain Creek, you may well find information in old copies of the Luther Register as its founding families often had ties to families Oklahoma County.

You will find more information about the area and its families on the Lincoln County GenWeb site, as well as in The New Sharon's Place.

Schools shown on the 1909 Topographic Map:  Union (southeast corner of Section 2); Captain Creek (northeast corner of Section 8); Woodlawn (southern edge of Section 20);

Genealogy Links

Because the northwestern corner of Bryan Township is only about 5 miles from the town of Luther, my Area Study includes some of its families.

Index to 1900 Census Heads of Household on each page of Wellston and Kickapoo Townships, which included Bryan Township at that time.

Founding Families

Genealogy reports for families who lived in the area during Territorial Days. Because there were so many marriages across township and even county lines, these are linked as a single set instead of divided by Township.

World Connect Project I have uploaded my GEDCOM for this entire area study.  You can go directly to my database, smc, and consult its index or use the link at left and its global search feature to find information contributed by others who are researching area families.
