About the Dragoo family. I grew up with many that have been mentioned, on my mothers side, the Dragoo Family. My Grandfather, Benjamin Dragoo passed before I was born, but I shared a house with his wife, my grandmother, Sarah Iris Dragoo. Sarah lived in my home as I was growing up,and told me amazing stories about her early years with Granddaddy. Uncles and Aunts....the names are "almost" correct.
I spent most of my summers with the family in Oklahoma. This isn't history for me, it's living with those that were family. Dalton had an amazing way of "Curing warts" Olin could find a fishing hole in the middle of nowhere and hunt like an Indian (Gee I wonder why. Willard had the best hugs for kids that could be possible. My mother Maude had a habit of worrying about everything possible at midnight on New Years Eve, then declaring that all her worries were over for the year. Cleo was a perfect wife and mother to her family. Thelma died before she was grown, but I've been told she was a saint.
Ben and Sarah's Children:
Dalton Dragoo (wife Carrie) Olin Dragoo (wife Aileen) Willard (unmarried) Maude Nan (my mother) Mary Cleo (husband Pete Stewart) Thelma (who died at a young age. I'm named after her)
