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?

Photo Albums

I have just completed putting together a new family history photo album. I have to thank my cousin Janie Anderson Anderson for her help with this latest project. Most of the family photos in the album were sent to me by Janie.

Janie has an amazing knowledge of the Earp/Wright/Ewing connection. Thanks to her my curiosity has finally been satisfied and I now understand all the twists and turns of those family connections. (I think.)

Janie explained that as a girl she and her family attended the Church of God in Stroud. Her grandmother, Coy Earp Miller, daughter of Wm. and Mary F. Earp, was widowed and lived with our great grandmother, Mary F. Earp. Many Sundays Janie and her family ate Sunday dinner there at the Earp home and she spent the afternoon observing all the many visiting family members who dropped by to see their mother, grandmother, and/or great grandmother.

Church of God, Stroud, OK, built abt. 1928
I will soon be posting some of those photographs. Above is a photo of the Church of God in Stroud, OK. This church was built by our great grandmother, Mary Frances Wright Earp, after her husband Will Earp died and she moved to town. It is still standing but has recently been purchased by a private buyer and has been renovated into a home.


  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
