KALISH, and lived there until the age of 19, when they moved to Ardmore. On February 14, 1895, she was married to Mr. Westheimer and with him, has made Ardmore her home since that time. She is survived by her husband, two children, MRS. WALTER NEUSTADT, and JULIENNE WESTHEIMER, and her father, all of whom live at the family home on C Street.

He was a member of the first Carter County contingent to go to Camp Travis, Sept. 20, 1917 and was in training about 8 months, having left for overseas duty June 10. He had been on the front, with the exception of rest periods of a few days, since Aug. 29. He was born at the foot of the Arbuckle mountains near the little town of Woodford December 1, 1898. He is survived by his mother; two sisters, MRS. A. J. MAY who resides at New Wilson and the younger sister is in the School for the Deaf at Sulphur; and four brothers, CREEDE, PAUL, ALLEN and JIMMIE who are with their mother. His father, ALLEN W. SPEAKE, died when Earl was only 14 years old and threw quite a responsibility upon his young shoulders. Earl entered high school at Ardmore September 1913, therefore another star in the Ardmore High School Service Flag has turned to gold.

Half page about J. W. JOHNSON of Milo with seven photographs of scenes on his farm. Part of the article chronicles his life,… driving the mail route from Caddo to Anadarko where he stayed long enough to get on his feet so he could cast about for something better. Since coming south to Texas about 40 years ago, he had been in employ of cattlemen as a cowboy…in 1885 he entered the employ of WILLIAMS and MURRAY, large cattle raisers at an Indian camp, then known as Elm Springs, later as Erin Springs, now Lindsay at a salary of $25 a month…salary increased to $125 a month… for a good time whey they took days off, Gainesville was the nearest point for trading but the boys chose Denison, Texas for jamborees for it offered more inducements for the good times… As a mere lad in New Orleans he entered the employ of a horse and mule concern, how he made good in swapping these animals and assembling them for shipping through Louisiana, Missouri and Arkansas and later Indian Territory, always able to make a living but never able to acquire the saving habit.

He realized that he would get old and it was a question of being either dependent or independent. … the only solution would be to get married. In 1886 he was married to EMILY BROWN, daughter of HEPSIE BROWN at old Mill Creek, Tishomingo County, Indian Territory, who was a Chickasaw. His wife has been a great help to him during his eventful experiences and to her is due a great measure, the success that has resulted from their combined efforts. When he found the lady of his choice, Mr. Johnson did not have enough money for the license, but nothing daunted, he borrowed the money to procure the license and set out to build a home…

During the time that Mr. Johnson acted as U. S. marshal out of Fort Smith, he had many a hair breath escape as was ever chronicled in the most imaginative Diamond Dick stories. He witnessed men shot down at his very side who were with him to enforce the laws and was wounded himself. Many of his escapades happened right here near the present site of Ardmore….
