    Notes 
    • Rhoda was engaged to marry a young man who was operating a frontier freighting line until he could accumulate enough so they could make a home on her claim. He was evidently killed by the Bender family who operated a road house a county or two south east of where they lived. So many of their customers disappeared that people finally caught on. A posse of officers and settlers started out to 'get' them. They evidently got wind of it and started to leave for Indian Territory, but were too slow. My Father later talked with 2 members of the posse. Their stories of the chase tallied to a dot up to the point of overtaking. Neither would say a word about what or how, but the story was over."
