My name is Barbara Stewart. I was born in Craig County Oklahoma. My Father Roy Summers was born in Oklahoma Indian Territory. My grandfather, Robert Benjamin Franklin Summers was part of a surveying crew, in Indian Territory, in the 1890's, and later was a US Deputy Marshal, and rode with Heck Bruner, Deputy Marshal, out of the Vinita, Indian Terr. Marshal's office. My Grandmother made him give that up after they married, because it was too dangerous. They all lived in Spavinaw, I.T. and later it was called Spavinaw, Mayes Co., Oklahoma
My interest in Genealogy, most likely started very young. I was always rummaging through my mothers picture drawer. All of the family photos were kept in one large dresser drawer. I would ask my mother who the people in the photos were, and even then it was fascinating. I was probably six years old.
Before I became caught up in this Genealogy madness, I owned and operated an art gallery and taught oil painting on canvas. I am married, have one son, and daughter-in-law, and 3 grandchildren.

The map shows several small communities, that are no long in existence.
And it is important in the fact that the Grand River Dam was build in the
late 1930's, creating over 1,000 miles of shoreline, and changed the area
in the Northeast part of the County. New town sites were established after
the dam was built, and others moved from their original location. Some
communities disappeared during the depression and Dust Bowl era. Cemeteries
were even relocated to other existing cemeteries.( The file size is about
1 megabyte, it should take about a minute to load, but may take longer
if you have a slow connection, )
Disney Cemetery, was in Mayes County but was moved during the construction of the dam. The graves were relocated to the Ketchum Cemetery in Craig County, about seven miles north of their original location.
Old Spavinaw Cemetery, once situated on Spavinaw
Creek, was moved during the construction of the Spavinaw Lake, a project
of the City of Tulsa, abt. 1920, to provide clean water, by gravity flow
to Tulsa, 65 miles away. The new location of the Spavinaw-Strang Cemetery
is north of the Junction of Hiway 20 and 82, just north of the City of
There are only three graves remaining at the old cemetery location,
now a park on the north edge of the lake. Due to a dispute over the moving
of the graves by my great uncle, the graves were left untouched. My great
grandmother Eveline Bowman Thompson's grave, is one of those. The others
are her daughter in law, and her baby. The City of Tulsa, maintains the
grounds, and the grave sites.

Henry Carroll, my GG-Grandfather was probably married before he married Henrietta Beaver since he was more than twice her age when they married.
I recently found out that Henry had a daughter named Roseannah Carroll, who married John H.Beaver, and he probably had a son named Edward Carroll.
