Heritag Center Welcomes Veterans Home

On Friday, yes tomorrow, the city is hosting a “Troop Welcome Home Parade” for our people coming back from Iraq.

It will begin at the Tahlequah rodeo grounds at 10:10am and drive past the Willis Rd/62H intersection at 10:21. We would also like to create/draw some posters that we can wave. Any suggestions or volunteers to help create these posters would be appreciated.

We will leave the center around 10am and should be back no later than 10:30. Everyone leaving should call us and let us put your name on the list and meet at the front doors (genealogy) at 10am.

Thanks for helping us welcome home our brave servicemen and women!

I have Cherokee on both sides of my family and few records other than family oral memories of the Trail of Tears. Some of my family members died from cholera on a steamboat on the Mississippi River during the forced relocation. When they got to Oklahoma, they were deliberately misregistered as Choctaws according to my grandmother (her grandmother was full blood). On my mother's side, I am related to Sarah Fannie Cowan (born 1850 Jacksboro TX, died 1887 Winniwood, OK) and Great Grand Uncle Thomas Winchester Krebbs reputed to have been a US Marshall selected by Garfield before his death in 1880s. On my dad's side, is John Ross Holland (died 1965, divorced from Mamie Rupp, Okla City, OK) of Warren County, TN. Any information would be appreciated.
