This book explores the lives of our ancestors who made that run and settled in Oklahoma.  It also traces their roots back into Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Germany.  Today their descendants have spread across the entire span of the United States and beyond.
On September 16, 1893, the starting gun signaled the opening of the Cherokee Outlet Territory where 40,000 claims of 160 acres each were offered.  Over 100,000 settlers participated in the Land Run.
TO BE CONTINUED is not just a book of genealogy, but a book outlining the history of a family... our family, and the historical significance of our family.  We did make a difference in the history of this nation.
