Memories Of H.H. Teeters

This Indian Pioneer Paper was recorded by W.P.A. fieldworker Maurice Anderson on January 18, 1938 at Mr. Teeters residence southwest of Wynnewood, OK. I was born in the Cherokee Nation near Vinita in 1873. My father and mother came from Missouri right after the Civil War and settled on Spavinaw Creek near Vinita and my father established the first sawmill in that part of the country. The mill was operated by water power and sawed lumber for people settling in that part of the country to build homes.
