Tensley Eli, Sr. and Amanda Ella Fletcher Cox
 and son Roy Franklin Cox.

It was taken at Effie Cox Henson's home at Wynnewood, OK in Garvin County about 1918.

These two old pictures were taken at Wilson, OK abt 1922. Tensley Eli Cox, Sr. was working in the oil field as a contractor and was associated with City State Bank Wilson, Oklahoma.

Tensley Eli Cox, Sr. on the right, Clarence Pearce in the middle and a Mr. Lamkin on the left. Mr. Lamkin and Tensley worked together hauling oil field equipment, rocks etc.

Note the eight wheel wagon with metal tires for hauling heavy loads. On the wagon is an unassembled steam boiler called a 45 horse special. The smoke stack is on top.

The first two horses were Dan and Dick. Dan is on the outside and Dick on the inside. They were war horses (World War I). One of them had a scar in his neck from the war. Dan weighed 1580 lbs and Dick weighed 1640 lbs. Tensley said they were excellent horses and would do anything he asked of them. The next pair of horses were Coley (black one) on the inside and Sheb on the outside. They each weighed about 1400 lbs. The two mules next to the wagon weighed about 2200 lbs each.

Notice the walking beam pump jack in the middle background and the tower.

Jasper Ferman Fletcher is the man on the left and the other two men are unknown. This wagon is also an eight wheel iron tire wagon used to haul heavy loads. This wagon is loaded with steam boiler equipment used in the oil field of that time.
