Hello, and welcome to the Murray County OKGenWeb site. 
My name is Rebecca Maloney and I am the Host of this 
website.  If you have questions about or additions to this 
site, please drop us a line. With your help, this page 
will become a great site for the history and genealogy of 
the south-central Oklahoma region.

Sulphur, the county seat, was originally called Sulphur Springs for the bromide and sulphur waters that attracted thousands of people to the area early in the century. The Arbuckle Mountains, Turner Falls and the Chickasaw National Recreational Area, including the 2,400-acre Lake of the Arbuckles, have made Murray County a leading tourist attraction.

What is now known as Oklahoma became a part of the Arkansas Territory in 1819,  but the relevant history dates from 1866 when the Indian tribes ceded the West part of their domain to the United States. Oklahoma land was not opened to white settlement until 1889.  The Indian Territory (about the Eastern one-third of present day Oklahoma) was not officially organized. Oklahoma became a Territory in 1890 and a state in 1907.  The first Oklahoma Census taken in 1900 consisted of two separate census - one of Oklahoma Territory and one of Indian Territory. Here is a brief history on Murray County Oklahoma
