These are on pages 123-124 and 216-219. BILLYE HOWE and SUE WOOD, members of the Cross Timbers Genealogical Society, compiled these in 1983 and 1984. The society paid for the laminating and binders.

The youth was the son of O. C. COLVIN, former well known citizen county citizen, who now lives in Lebanon, Oklahoma. From the Duncan Banner:
The fatal tragedy occurred about a mile south of the city when Colvin and another truck driver were returning from the refinery with their trucks loaded with gasoline for the Duncan Gasoline & Oil Co. Colvin’s truck developed engine trouble and could not be pulled out of a bad place in the road. Colvin and the other driver started on to town intending to get a tractor and return for the load. When a short distance from the breakdown, the truck of the second driver slipped into a slight rut and it is believed that some of the gasoline sloshed out and onto the muffler of the truck where it was ignited, setting fire to the truck. The two men managed to several barrels of gasoline off the truck and away from the fire and Colvin attempted to pull a wagon sheet from the truck. In doing this, the burning gasoline sloshed on his clothing, igniting them. With assistance of some men who were passing the scene, the fire was extinguished by tearing off most of Colvin’s clothing. He was rushed to the hospital for medical attention but the patient failed to rally, the physicians expressed the opinion that he had inhaled the fumes and possibly some flames. He died Wednesday afternoon. Colvin was married and leaves a wife, who was just out of the hospital from an operation, and his father who is an officer in Carter county, Okla. The father is here now. Funeral services were held Friday with burial in Duncan cemetery. Colvin is well known in Duncan, having lived here for some years, working for different oil companies.
