- Aug 7, 2008To all searching the Oklahoma records.. please make note that
Oklahoma became the 46th state on November 16, 1907.
sStevesr85552: You are correct in stating the area as Indian Territory
for the years prior to 1907.. I also have a history that goes into IT!
According to OklahomaGenWeb,(as redirected from USGenWeb site):
About Craig County, Oklahoma:
Location: Craig County borders Kansas and is located in northeastern
Oklahoma. Vinita the county seat, was once called both "Downingville"
and "The Junction" and was established in 1871 at the junction of the
Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad (Katy) and the Atlantic and Pacific
Railroad, (later the Frisco), the first rail lines to enter Oklahoma.
In 1881 the two railroads crossed at Vinita.
Good luck in your searches!
