Caylon Berglan
Mary Bourbonaise
Hi Bud:
My name is Caylon Berglan, great grandson of Anders Berglan. His daughter, May Caroline (Aunt May) Berglan Chitwood, was interviewed by Effie S. Jackson, journalist, on Jan. 18, 1938 in an effort to interview participants and descendants of participants in the Land Run of 1889. I discovered this interview in the Western History Collection at the University of Oklahoma while working on my Masters Degree. In this interview, Aunt May references her relationship with Mary Bourbonaise. Quote from the intervie: "I recall something of interest when there was a change in superintendents. The one in charge had not allowed the boys and girls to sing or talk in Indian but I attended their church service after the new superintendent had taken charge and found that he was more liberal. I watched the pupils march into chapel-boys two by two-girls two by two. They sand the hymns, those who wished to in Indian and others in English. It still seems to me a beautiful melody-the songs in English then picked up and carried on in Indian like an echo.
Miss Mary Bourbonaise with whom I was living was asked to become the leader of Sunday School and church activities but refused, saying that she was not even a member of the church, that she loved to dance and be free from restraint and asked why they should want her. The church leaders told her it was because what she did, she did well and on that ground asked her to become the superintendent. Strange to say she became so interested in her church work that she gave up all of her worldly pleasures and became a "true" leader. She lived to be old and even the name of "Miss Mary" is revered by all who knew her.
Something else in that community interested me. My father had rented a farm on the river about ten miles northwest of old Shawneetown. Between my father's farm and the town was a place called Pleasant Hill, which, according to the story told, had originally been a log cabin used as a residence and late became the first Sunday School in that part of the Territory. There was only a foundation there at the time I lived there.
I have a Bible that "Miss Mary" said came originally from this first Sunday School"
Bud, this was a bit long, but I hope you will find interesting.
Sincerely,
Caylon Berglan

Bourbonaisse Family
Hi Bud,

Wondering what your connection is to this family and wondering if you would be interested in a story (written by my ggrandmother's sister) stating that she lived with this family. Do you know if they had a daughter named Mary that was a superintendent of an Indian School?

Let me know if you are interested.

Carrie

Bourlons
Thank you for answering so quickly. Now I have another situation that I need your help. We do not need duplicate memorials and we each have information the other does not have. I don't mind deleting mine, but I would like to have their obits listed as well as their plot numbers. Since I can not add that information to yours and you can't add your information to mine, we have a problem. If you would be willing to copy the information I have to yours, then it would all be together. What do you think?

I notice that you have enterd the three Bourlon at the Sunset Cemetery in Farwell, TX. However, they are buried at Texico. The headstones that you have pictured are the ones that we have put on find-a-grave - Texico Cemetery. You have some added information that I don't have. We need to combine the information, but have them buried in the correct location. Billy and Doris Bourlon are in the Farwell cemetery.

Thank you.

RE: Robert's Memorial
Bud, we've got to quit meeting like this...on a Grave Website! haha! Well, I saw your name on it, so I though that you must have posted it from the Oklahoman. I don't know how to get to it through findagrave.com except by googling his name on the Internet. I had probably seen it before when I googled his name, but when I clicked the website, I had just thought it was another site wanting money to join it and didn't sign up to read it. Thanks for posting it! I'm going to try to figure out how to add some of my relatives who are not listed to the cemetery that I know they are in. The reason Robert's grandparents didn't come up under Foglesong at Elmwood Cemetery in Woodward was because they had mispelled it...they had it spelled Fogelsong. I sent a request for them to change it. Also, Robert's mother & dad are buried there, and they didn't come up at all. Thanks!
