FIELD BOOK OF OILFIELD MAPS OF NORTHEASTERN OKLAHOMA
This book of maps appears to have been once owned by an oil company employee. I found two articles with the maps on the man dated 1955. The maps have no date themselves, but could date even a few years earlier.
There are 74 platte maps printed on a vellum-like material. Most are marked at the top with the range numbers, so you can pinpoint on a modern-day map or Google Earth.
Each of these maps are bound by brads into a book. There are covers and you can take out the brads to see the maps individually. Each map measures roughly 12 “ x 12” and printed in blue like you would see on blueprints.
Rivers and some creeks are named. There are a couple of railroads mentioned. It appears there are no fords mentioned, but they do show were all of the creeks in a particular area intersect with the river, etc.
Cities and towns – Nowata, Heyburn, Kellyville, Bristow , Haskell, Wainwright, Council Hill, Hamilton Switch, Crekola, Depew, Dawson, Tulsa, Red Fork, New Tanesha, Sand Springs, Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Sapulpa, Bixby, Glenpool, Leonard, Wealaka, Oilton, Drumright, Jenks, Skiatook, Tahlala, Chelsea, Oglesby, Alluwe, Bartlesville, Dewey, Lenapah, Copan
The names of landowners are listed on every piece of property. Oil wells are marked. I do not know if house sites are marked.
These maps were used in the field, so they are not pristine. A few have faded but are still readable.
I would like this to go to someone who could have fun researching and possibly detecting the possible house sites, possible fords, and other points on the maps.
Trust me you will be able to find every oil well.
I don’t think you’ll be able to find a book of maps like this. It was in the oil company employee’s vehicle.
