Joshua and Ida were married in Mitchell Co., Kansas where the two oldest children born
there. Joshua made the "Run" into Oklahoma and settled in Tonkawa where three
children were born (son Henry Wadsworth died at age 6 mos). They sold out and moved to
Eureka Kansas where the last two girls were born. They came to Tulsa County in 1905
settling in Alsuma. At statehood they bought a farm and build a house at 71st and Peoria.
He was a farmer and his land was from Peoria to the river north beyond 66th and south to
the bend in the Arkansas River. He had a Dog race track along the river just north of 66th
and built the Riverside Park (Swimming Pool and dance hall) just south of their house. The
corner of 71st and Peoria was known as "Cline Corner" in the early days.
