MemoriesOf S. W. Frost

My father was Matthew Frost, born September 20, 1825, in Tennessee. My mother was Nancy Jane Hale Frost, born in 1841 in North Carolina. There were five children in our family. I was born in 1858 in South

I was born in 1858 in Southwest Missouri.

I came to the Indian Territory in January, 1888. I came to Berwyn on a mixed train from Missouri. There were no passenger trains through here at that time.

I had a store at Berwyn for a short time. Then I moved to Dougherty. That town was named for Bill Dougherty, who moved there from Gainesville, Texas.
