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. Let's swap some stories and photographs from the treasure chest of time. Y'all come on in now, hear?

William Earp, young John, and Percheron

I have an actual photograph as well a newspaper print copy of this photo. They both came from one of  Mama's old albums. The photo is probably a copy of a copy, but I'll post it and we can see if the quality is any better.

The caption below the newspaper picture says that the photograph was taken at the county fair about statehood time which would date the photo about September or October of 1907.

"The occasion for the picture was not fair competition...his young son John had won a ride and picture on Dad's prize horse for obediently taking medicine...This photograph was taken about statehood time...and donated by Mrs. John Earp."
