I am wondering if there is a record of businesses in Ardmore, Indian Territory (Carter Co), OK during the years between 1880-1905. Maybe some directories or historical books, etc on Ardmore? Tax Records?
My g-grandfather, W. F. Stanfield had a wagon yard there located where the First National Bank was located in the 1960s. I would assume this was the newest lst National Bank at the 1960s time frame.
My g-aunt's husband, Jordan Pearce, had a small grocery store there during the same time frame (1880-1905). In the 1960s, this building had be transformed into a bar. The bar would have been a few blocks down and to the left or right of the 1960s First National Bank.
I do not know addresses nor the exact names of the businesses, but perhaps anyone acquainted with Ardmore could place the addresses of the 1960s buildings to get a link to the names of the earlier businesses.
I am thinking--but may be wrong--that the 1880-1905 businesses would be named for Stanfield and/or Pearce.
If anyone can help in locating the names of these businesses and other information about them, I would appreciate knowing and will be willing to pay.
