MEMORIAL

This stone marks the ground where "old timers" who had lived in Tulsa and vicinity over 30 years met on 21 sep 1921 at a Barbecue given by Dr. Sam G. Kennedy and Dr. Jim Kennedy. They all visited with old friends, reminisced and organized the "Tulsa Association of Pioneers" to comemerate and perpetuate the memory of those sturdy pioneers who, by their sacrifice and effort helped to build a great empire.--Inscription by J.M. Hall who came to Tulsa 1882.

(Front side); This memorial was erected by the Tulsa Association of Pioneers in honor of the charter members of the association living in Tulsa, Indian Territory and vicinity for 30 years from 1891 to 1921, and other pioneer families.

According to her death certificate, the cause of death was exhaustion, due to a broken hip; due to age. She had fallen at home while doing her "housework" and was "very feeble".

The marriage of Texanna and Daniel Newman McIntosh Jr was annuled after a very short marriage. Reason unknown at this time; but speculation by Dode McIntosh was that Daniel Newman McIntosh Sr, father of Daniel Jr, disapproved of Texanna as a choice of wife for whatever reason.

Texanna was said to be an incredibly beautiful woman. "Dode" McIntosh of Creek Nation exclaimed that "she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen".

William) was born on 15 Jun 1852 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. He died on 21 Jan 1942 in

Imperial Valley, Imperial County, California. He was buried in Riverview Cemetery Brawley,

California.

This was told by Mortie Lee McKim in 1950: (the timelines are off and often this happens when "memories" are called up)

Joseph went to California about 1877 or 1878, leaving his little daughter with her mother's parents. In 1878 or 1879 he went to Mexico, where he became interested in several mines, but as he did not give up his citizenship, he could not hold them in his own name. The last mine was the "Nina Ray", a silver mine about 100 miles south of Bisbee, Arizona. To reach it, it was necessary to travel 70 miles by wagon and the remaining distance on horseback over a very dangerous mountain trail.

His half-sister, Mortie Lee MCKIM, went down and stayed nine or ten months, until he was ready to bring the children back. She kept them in Fulton, Missouri for two years, when he returned to Mexico, sold the mine, and retired, going to California to live about 1900.

He settled in Pomona, California and that fall went back to Fulton where he married his wife #3.

About 1901 he became interested in the Imperial Valley, bringing home samples of soil to see what could grow in it. He bought 1200 acres; his half brother William Warder MCKIM bought about 200 acres; and his half sister Mortie Lee MCKIM bought 120 acres.

At that time the McKim Ranch consisted of over 1500 acres, although it is now (1950) about 1000 acres. Joseph moved to Berkeley when the children were older, and when they had finished school, he moved to El Centro to live. He spent some time in San Diego and the last few years of his life on the ranch. He died on the McKim Ranch.

The following obituary is NOT accurate, which often happens when history is given generations later:

PIONEER PATRIARCH SUCCUMBS AT 93 IN RANCH HOME HERE

Long illness takes Joseph McKim, funeral scheduled Saturday. "Joseph Harmon McKim, 93, patriarch of Imperial Valley pioneers, died late Wednesday at his ranch home seven miles east of Imperial after an illness of several years. Funeral services were held at the ? chapel in El ? at 2pm Saturday. He was buried in Riverview Cemetery in Brawley. McKim came to Imperial Valley in 1901, bringing 15 head of horses and miles from Pomona. He located on land seven miles east of Imperial and lived there the remainder of his life. He was born in Millersburg, Bourbon County, Kentucky on June 15, 1849 (wrong). As a young boy he went to Missouri and in 1871 (77) came to California. He settled in Santa Ana where he engaged in ranching for two years. In 1873 started for Yuma, driving a buckb oard and accompanied by an Indian guide. On that trip he crossed the desert wastes later named Imperial Valley. Later in the same year McKim left Bisbee, Arizona for the interior of Mexico where he engaged in mining operations for 25 years. He returned to Pomona where he remained until he ____. Among his survivors are Mrs Addie P. McKim and her three daughters, Mrs. Mrs R. ? of Columbia, Missouri; Mrs E. Prude of Brawley; and Mrs L.J. M...ser of Imperial; one son J.L. McKim of Imperial; two sisters living in Missouri; 12 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren."
