1889 · Land Run of 1889

Age 4

The Oklahoma Land Run on April 22, 1889, was the first land rush, or land opened for settlement on a first-come basis, opened to the Unassigned Lands. The land rush lured approximately 50,000 people, saddled with their fastest horses, looking to claim their piece of the newly available two million acres. The requirements included the settler to live and improve on their 160 acres for five years in order to receive the title. Choice land tempted people to hide out and get an early lead on their claim. These people became known as “sooners.” It is estimated that eleven thousand homesteads were claimed.
1905 · The Sequoyah Constitutional Convention

Age 20

The Sequoyah Constitutional Convention was held on August 21, 1905, to attempt to secure statehood for Indian Territory, or the State of Sequoyah. The proposed state was in the area which is now the south-eastern portion of modern-day Oklahoma. The proposal was to create a state which would secure Indian control of their lands. A 35,000 word constitution was created which laid the groundwork for the future Oklahoma Constitution. Congress would not consider the statehood bill and it was rejected. 

Name Meaning

English (southern): habitational name from places in Gloucestershire and Middlesex, so named from Old English strōd ‘marshy ground overgrown with brushwood’. Strood in Kent is named with the same word, and some examples of the surname are no doubt derived from this term in independent use.
