Texas county maps showing R/T/S are available (or were about a year ago) at the courthouse in Guymon, OK. I believe I got mine from the assessor's office there. I think the phone number there is 338-3060, and the address is 319 N. Main Guymon, OK 73942. I believe the area code for the phones there might have changed, but it was 405. Hope this helps somewhat... at least you know the map exists! Bill

Hello Bill,
I'm really slow in responding. However, I've emailed you a REED history from Volume 1. I hope you find the information helpful. I've tried scanning these stories, but it's awfully slow because the typeset isn't easily OCR'd. So, I've reverted back to manual entry. Slowly, I'll get to all the names. Please let all of us know if you find any helpful information in the REED history.

Surnames: BROWN, FUNSTON
Searching for any record or leads concerning James David BROWN and the Rolla Earl FUNSTON family in the Guymon area of Texas County during the approximate period 1906-1910. Rolla Earl FUNSTON, wife Inez FUNSTON, and James David BROWN, brother of Inez FUNSTON, moved from Moultrie County, Illinois in 1906 and settled in the Guymon area of Texas County, Oklahoma. William FUNSTON, one of the FUNSTON couple's children, was born in Oklahoma, presumably Texas County, about 1908. James David BROWN removed from Guymon and settled in Minneola, Clark County, Kansas about 1909 and died there in 1915. Rolla and Inez FUNSTON and family had returned to Illinois by 1910. Any information concerning James BROWN and the FUNSTON family while in Oklahoma would be greatly appreciated. I had the 1915 published obituary of James D. BROWN. The obit describes the Oklahoma venture, and I would be pleased to pass the obituary on to any interested researcher or institution. Thank you.

BRAMLETT

Has anyone done a survey of tombstone inscriptions in Texas County? Many members of my family lived in Texas County during the early part of this century (at least through 1921). Several male members of the family worked on the railroad that ran through Goodwell. I am almost positive that my great, great grandma Elizabeth Jane BRAMLETT and a great, great uncle John Henry BRAMLETT are buried somewhere in Texas County, probably in the vicinity of either Goodwell or Optima. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has surveyed the county cemeteries or from anyone who knows if there is a county historian and/or genealogical society. -- Best Regards, Jim Bramlett 1111 East Ikard St. Henrietta, TX 76365 (940)538-4858 jdbram@wf.quik.com
