Sulphur Times-Democrat

I’m not sure but I think the “Federated Tulip Garden Club of Sulphur” was organized around 1950. Anyway, it’s been here a long time creating beautification to our town. All at once we may begin to notice flowers growing where only weeks earlier there was litter and a real eyesore for our visitors to see as they entered our town. The amazing thing about all this is so much of the work is done by the Garden Club members. There is a lot of planning such as deciding what plants will survive in the direct sun throughout the summer and which plants can survive in the shade and so on.

I am a Freedman citizen of the Choctaw Tribe, quarter blood Choctaw Indian and three quarter negro. I was born in what was called Gaines County when the Choctaw tribe had control in this country, later named Latimer County. I have been living in this county 63 years. My father, Elias S. Brown, was born in this county about four miles west of what is now Clayton, Oklahoma. I do not remember his age. He died August 15, 1920.
