Oklahoma Credits & Contributors



Without the help of you — our gracious contributors, this web site, nor any future publication would be successful. I am so grateful to ALL of you!!! Thank you so much!!

Tony Ray Standeford – Tony, a reader of Legends of America – particularly our Indian Territory Legends of Oklahoma, is an avid historian, ghost towner, and treasure hunter from Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Tony has not only supplied us with information about Oklahoma, but also a number of great ideas on how to promote the website. Thanks Tony!!

Update: Unfortunately, we hear from Tony’s mother that he passed away in February 2009. Very sad, as this young man had so much to offer. Rest in peace Tony.
