Memories Of Homer L. Boyd

This week’s Indian Pioneer Paper was recorded by W.P.A fieldwriter John F. Daugherty on May 26, 1937. My father was Anderson Boyd, born in southwest Missouri in 1840. He was a Confederate Soldier during the Civil War. My mother was Susan Clark Boyd, born in Boonville, Missouri. Father was a liveryman and a laborer. I was born November 13th, 1876 at McKinney, Texas. I had an uncle living in Ardmore, so I came on the train to Ardmore in 1890. We lived in a frame house and used water out of a well. I thought I had never seen so much wind and dust as there was in that town. When we sat down to eat our meals we had to brush the dust from the table.
