    I once read somewhere that most folks whose Oklahoma roots date back to the 19th century have some American ancestry, which means you would be the exception if you didn't.

    My Choctaw/Creek ancestors were uprooted from Georgia in 1840s Trail of Tears, took the southern route to Indian Territory, paused a generation in Mississippi, on to Texas for some Comanche seasoning for a generation, invaded Okla from the south circa 1900, integrated and assimilated into my great grandfather's Cornwall, UK tribe.
    Actually, my paternal grandfather did "squat" on Indian land, homesteading in 1902 when Kiowa-Comanche Big Pasture, the last unsettled reservation in Oklahoma, was opened to homesteading.

    I was born 6 miles from North Fork of Red River, which was Texas-Oklahoma boundary until 2000 when South Fork was officially resolved as border. With river meandering, there are places along the Red River where land and oil wells are now on wrong side of river.
