Pontotoc County Historical & Genealogical Society
The Pontotoc Co. Historical and Genealogical Society was organized in October, 1967 in the home of Mrs. Mattie Logsdon at Ada, Oklahoma. Our purpose has been many-fold, We are attempting to copy and preserve the history of our county as many of the early towns and villages no longer exist; to copy and index all grave stones in all the cemeteries of the area, and to publish them; to record biographies of the pioneers; to preserve the records of our Indian heritage; to establish proof of our family lines and preserve them in a filing system, and to copy birth, death and marriages from family Bibles. We have copied over 3000 tomb stones records and over a thousand marriages prior to 1907. We have a historical and genealogical library of books, films and readers of which we are proud. We shall publish any and all data of the "roots of our trees" or even if the data might give clues to our "beginnings."
