Beno Hall, a second look at the records

In 2015, I wrote a piece on the location of Beno Hall.  Since then more information has been coming up, so I thought I’d share it as well.  New Facts are always helpful to building a more complete picture.

This morning, a helpful gentleman sent me some different records from the now digitized County Clerk records.  According to those, rather than a Creek Allotment, Block 12, lot 4 was a Cherokee Allotment, still not to Brady.

The various additions have different block numbers, so a really detailed map of Tulsa’s blocks is helpful.
