Memories Of Alice Smith Farmer

This week we have the Indian Pioneer Paper of Alice Farmer. This oral history was recorded by W. P. A. fieldworker Maurice Anderson.

I was born in Texas, December 19, 1863. Married George W. Farmer in Wichita Falls, Texas in 1883. We came to Indian Territory, July 1885, in three covered wagons pulled by oxen. We hauled feed, oats and corn for the Government to Fort Sill, Oklahoma. We had to chain wagons together to ford Red River. I rode in the skiff. There were no fences, all open range, just crossed trails.
