Col. Adolphus De Orcutt And Family

Located at Oaklawn Cemetery in Tulsa, OK.
I like this picture because you can see the tall buildings in the back ground showing how much Tulsa has grown since A.D. Orcutt settled this area.
Col. A. D. Orcutt

Instead of me telling all about this gentleman I will refer you to a blog where his information has been very nicely written up. Click this link http://www.tulsagal.net/2009/07/orcutt-family.html and it will take you staright to it.

Here is some additional information I was able to find. The following is from A history of the state of Oklahoma By Luther B. Hill.

I also found some information at The Naming Of Oakland, AR that mentions him and his family.

The following info is from Ancestry.com.
