This was on a stream where many wagon trains stopped.  A town sprang up with a post office, general store, and school/church.  I spoke with a man who lives where the town was located, and he says that when he gardens he still finds old bottles and cans and refuse thrown out by the people who camped by the stream.

Capper no longer exists, except for the remains of one building and slight indications of the one-time main street. It was an oil boom town, north of Depew, Oklahoma and near Shamrock, in about 1915 or so. A photo of "Main Street" and a descriptions of my grandparents short time spent there can be viewed at my website: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Valley/5842/capper-ok.html

An ancestor mailed a letter from post office in Kully Chaha, Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, Sugar Loaf County, in 1881 and I know there was a small town. I believe it to be near to Nail Prairie, probably at the foot of Sugar Loaf Mountain, on the west side. This would near Cameron, Oklahoma.

My gggrandfather Frank Overstreet lived 2 miles outside of this town.  I have since found out from a friend of gggrandfather,(who is still living! Will be 100 6/5/00),that the only thing left of the town is the cemetery. Ggrandfather's first wife died when my ggrandmother was 2/3 yrs old.  I am trying to find out what her name was. Any help is appreciated.

Old Woodville
Tue Feb 1 17:32:52 2000
Old Woodville Oklahoma was moved two miles north due to Lake Texhoma expansion,1939. Once a thriving town with the railraod passing through, bustling with activity & warm friends with memories where my Grandfather & Grandmother met in 1913 at a picnic downtown Woodville. Acocrding to my grandfather's written memories,"Woodville is located in the extreme south eastern part of which was then the Old Indian Territory & Woodville was located in the forks of the Red River and the Washita Rivers.It was 3 miles from the Washita River near the mouth where Washita emptied into the Red River." New Woodville no longer the once dearly loved & thriving town it once was to so many people. It made my great grand mother who lived there in from 1872 till early 1908 was so sad to see Woodville moved to the north that she no longer would visit the area in her last days. weet Memories & precious times shared by so many of Old Woodville Oklahoma.Old Woodville Cemetery where so many of my! relatives are buried was moved & relocated. Rev. R.S. Bell,my GG grandfather was the First Preacher in Indian Territory for the Chickasaw Indians, March 1,1914, my Grandparents were married in Old Woodville,Oklhoma. Many dreams & many lives shared Old Woodville. Vicki rreynolds@pdq.net
