Oklahoma… Where the West Remains!

Jeri L. Dobrowski

This past winter I spent many a late night following genealogical crumbs left by my ancestors. One trail led to a branch of the family tree rooted in Oklahoma. My maternal grandmother, Lucille, was born in 1911 in Pawnee County. Her parents, Vinton and Susie (Lancaster) Wildman, married in Osage City on Christmas Day 1897. Susie’s father had acquired land in the 1889 Land Run, homesteading on the Osage and Pawnee Nation, Oklahoma Indian Territory. The Lancasters came to Oklahoma from Texas.

Vinton was not present when Grandma Lucille was born. He had gone to Montana to file on a homestead claim. Suzie and the couple’s four children joined Vinton in Custer County, Montana, making the trip by train just days after Lucille’s birth.
