Welcome to the Mayes County OKGenWeb

Hello!

My name is Anthony Marshall, the County Coordinator for Mayes County. My great grandparents came to Mayes County by covered wagon back in 1904 and so I have a great fondness for the area. I have several relatives living in Mayes County but I do not currently live there. I am able to do some free LIMITED research and lookups in census, marriage, military, birth and deaths, newspapers and much more. Please email me for more information. If you would like to contribute your information to this page, please email me with Mayes County in the Subject line.

About Mayes County

Mayes County, Oklahoma, located in the northeastern part of the state, was named in honor of Ex-chief Samuel Houston Mayes. All of the land comprising Mayes County was formerly a part of the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, with the exception of one township on the south, being a part of the Creek Nation. Mayes County enjoys a citizenship second to none in the state, for the reason that the Cherokee Nation played such an important part in the history making of Oklahoma, and that part of the Cherokee Nation that is now Mayes County furnished a liberal share of the history making of the Cherokee Nation.
