First Families of Cleveland County, Oklahoma, a Lineage Society.

First Families of Cleveland County, Oklahoma, a Lineage Society. Norman, Oklahoma: Cleveland County Genealogical Society, 1993.

This 353-page volume was prepared by the Cleveland County Genealogical Society and published in 1993. The hardback book, measuring 8½”x11”, was organized and sponsored by CCGS to identify and honor the descendants of the earliest pioneers into this area. It includes the research of 161 members of First Families of Cleveland County, Inc., featuring 155 pioneer settlers in Cleveland County.

Eligibility for membership into this lineage/hereditary society required documentary proof of residence of an applicant’s pioneer ancestor in what is now Cleveland County, Oklahoma, up to and including the date of the U.S. Census of 1910.

First Families of Cleveland County, Oklahoma, was a short-lived CCGS project in the early 1990s. The group was incorporated in the State of Oklahoma, with 502(c)(3) nonprofit status. Soon after 161 applications were approved and the book published, the corporation was disorganized.

First Families of Oklahoma no longer exists.
