sturgeons in zincville

I am looking for information on grandfather and great-grandfather who were from/in Zincville,Ottawa Co, OK around the mid to late 1930's.

James A Sturgeon, was originally from Lincoln, Nebraska and at some point lived in Zincville. His son, Carl P. Sturgeon worked for a taxi company either in Zincville or Douthat. He would pick up his future wife and her sisters in Kansas (they lived near the Oklahoma line) and would drive them to school in his cab. I have one photo of him and my grandmother sitting on the hood of the cab, unfortunately, you can't read the name of the company. Also, later on, James and Carl both worked in the mines. I believe it was the Beck Mine.

Any information on either of the Sturgeons or the Cab company or the mine would be greatly appreciated. Also, any historical information on Zincville would be helpful also.
