Guy & Lutie had 6 children -- the
(pronounced Jean). She was the one who taught at the 101 ranch
after finishing school in White Eagle and on alternate semesters
at Ok A&M in Stillwater until she graduated in 1922. She and her
sister in one picture was on horseback returning from the 101.
Most of the pictures of the
Indians and life on the farms were taken by Guy, brother to
Richard Steele, the Indian agent, if not by the government
photographer, Vince Dillon.
The lady who donated the above two pictures is Marilyn Hicks
of Dallas. Her cousin Phe was married to Earl Waltrip. Phe
and Earl had four boys and lived here for a while. Phe and
Dora Eagle attended school together and ran into each other
on the street. They were so happy to see an old schoolmate.
Marilyn would like to know if any of these people in the
photographs can be indentified?
This would be 1920, with girls
more of my mother's age, (Velma Pensoneau Jones, born in
1913). Grandmother Elizabeth Little Cook was out of Chilocco
by this time and had children. I would like to believe the
girl on the bottom right is Martha Grass. The girl in the
back row, third from left looks so much like Vinola Cerre,
but, of course, is older than Vi, maybe her relative.
