In the next month or so, my latest historical feature on the history of the Choctaw Nation will be published locally. The story is about the McCurtain family, and includes genealogical information up to 1900, and their significant contributions. If anyone has any old original pictures of the McCurtain family in the 1800’s, please let me know via E-Mail on the Contact Us option at: Previews of two of my historical book chapters have recently appeared in the Poteau Daily News, as multiple installments on each Wednesday of June and July.

I have been told that my Grandfather J.W. Stephens is buried in McCurtain Co. Okla. In a Cemetery called Waterhole.

I assume this is an indian Cemetery since he was Indian. I think he died in the early 1940’s,
