E. Franklin She was a loving, kind, extremely generous and fun lady. When I was about 10 years old and grandma about 77 years old, I became stuck mid-way up a huge old oak tree in her backyard. Grandma climbed up that tree and helped me down, then told me "don't you ever let your mom know what we just did", and I never did. Grandma loved each of her children, grand and great-grandchildren completely, always had treats waiting at her home for each of us. She was a wonderful cook and I still serve my own family today, some of grandma's best dishes made from her scratch recipes. Grandma had two outhouses at the rear of her property, and during the 1920s there were cows back there as well. The cows were known to chase family and friends away from the outhouses on occasion. She was born 11 September 1881 at the Stansberry farm just outside Goodman, McDonald CO, Missouri, the 4th of 5 children issued by Richard Braxton Stansberry and Arvilla Elizabeth Corner. After Arvilla's death, Richard brought the family by covered wagon to the Cherokee Strip during fall of 1888. They lived there in two covered wagons, actually one was a Conestoga wagon, until the April 1889 Indian Territory Land Run. Richard, his son Lawrence Richard 'Lon' and Richard's half-brother William S. Stansberry all took part in the land run, securing sections near what is today Chandler, Oklahoma, and along the Cimarron River in today's Payne County, Oklahoma near Stillwater. After Richard's remarriage to Emma Matroni Foster, and the deaths of Emma and their infant daughter Nellie in 1894, the family eventually moved into Tulsey Town, today Tulsa, Oklahoma. Grandma was a wonderful Christian lady who loved the Lord and served Him completely every day of her life. She was a true blessing in the lives of all who knew this grand old lady.
