Born in Boone County, Iowa, October 10, 1864, Mrs. MCWHIRT came to this section with her husband, the late Sam MCWHIRT, in the early days when Hominy was nothing more than an Indian trading post. They came to Oklahoma from Missouri after having been married in Kansas and moving to Missouri.
They lived on farms in the Wynona, Bartlesville, Pawhuska and Hominy area for many years. Following her husband’s death, Mrs. MCWHIRT moved into town and made her home with her son, at whose home she died, and a daughter, Mrs. Jane Moore BOGLE.
Other survivors include another son, Clyde MCWHIRT, Wyona, and another daughter, Mrs. J. R. CUSTER, Midland, Tex. Also surviving is a brother, Eli MCKINNEY, Vicksburg, Miss; 18 grandchildren an 29 great grandchildren.
