Memories of S.O. Richardson

This week’s Indian Pioneer Paper was recorded by W.P.A. fieldworker Maurice Anderson on May 3, 1937 at Mr. Richardson’s residence near Wynnewood, OK.

I was born in 1857, in Georgia. Father was M.B. Richardson, born in Georgia.I came to the Indian Territory in 1886. I came horseback, looking for a place to settle. I came through where Wynnewood is now and they were building the right-of-way for the Santa Fe Railroad at that time. There was nothing but a grading crew’s camp where Wynnewood is now. Old Cherokee Town was about five miles north of there, and I crossed the Washita River at Old Cherokee Town.
