Memories of Sam Dee Erwin

This Indian Pioneer Paper was recorded July 15, 1937 by W. P. A. fieldworker Maurice Anderson.

I was born in Texas in 1868. Father was T. J. Erwin, born in Texas. Mother was Louisa Hall also born in Texas. My first trip to the Indian Territory was in 1887. I came with my father from Dallas County, Texas, to Pauls Valley in the Chickasaw Nation to gather corn. We were driving a span of mules to a covered wagon and it took us about ten days to make the trip.
