Attached is a photo of my great-grandparents, Solon Kile (1859-1934) and Ida (Sellers) Kile (1870-1972). Yes, she lived to be 102! They met and married in Navarro Co., Texas, but later homesteaded in the Oklahoma panhandle, and eventually moved to Wellington, Kansas, where they lived out the remainder of their lives.

  1. The Kiles traveled the opposite of my family. My grandfather grew up near Wellington Kansas, came to Oklahoma in 1893 when his widowed mother made the run on horseback into the Cherokee strip , and eventually settled near Shattuck and Gage near the entry to the Oklahoma panhandle in the northwest corner of the state. One of the cousins still has the side-saddle she rode to stake out her claim, and my sister has her red ribbon that says “I Made the Run”.

  2. Where did they locate in the Oklahoma Panhandle? and when? My family went to Texas County.
