The Earp Family Blog


Here you'll find a family parlor for descendants and other kin of William Asbury and Mary Frances (Wright) Earp, who settled near Stroud (Lincoln Co.) Oklahoma Territory in 1892. May it be a resting place along the highway of time for all who pass this way. Come on in--the door's open. Sit down and rest a spell.

The Earp Family Arrives by Covered Wagon

This is a clipping from the Stroud
paper, 1959, of an interview with
Mary Frances (Wright) Earp,
 in which she tells about the
 family's arrival in Indian Territory,
in 1892. If someone had the time
and energy to turn this into a text
document, we'd all be much obliged.
