Memories Of Alice M. Turner

I don’t remember the name of my husband’s father and mother, nor where they came from to the Territory. He was here when my parents came here from Texas in 1889. We rented a farm from him near the present site of Dougherty, then known as Strawberry Flat, because there were so many wild strawberries there.

Mazeppa T. Turner’s first wife died, and I married him August 12, 1890. We lived on Honey Creek in the Arbuckle Mountains in the Chickasaw Nation. Our home was a little log hut nestled among the hills.
