Memories Of Mrs. Lola Dunigan

Memories Of Mrs. Lola Dunigan

This week we have the Indian Pioneer Paper of Lola Dunigan. This WPA interview was taken by field worker Maurice Anderson in 1937 at Mrs. Dunigan’shomein Pauls Valley, OK.

I was born 4 miles northeast of Tishomingo, Oklahoma on April 2, 1876. My father was John Byfield. I don’t remember my mother’s name as as she died when I was very small.

My father wouldn’t let me go to ball games or dances as my mother died when I was very small and as I grew up I had to take care of our home.

I was eighteen years old when I married. Then I went to lots of Indian dances and ball games. I have seen them play ball and they would wind up in a big fight and would hit one another over the head with their ball sticks.
