When Ed was 90, in 1964, his daughters asked him to write his autobiography.  He had many accomplishments and had many fascinating stories of his experiences.  As you might expect his autobiography includes dates, places and people but it also includes many of his humorous & interesting stories.

Ed was born September 23, 1873 in Greenwood, Kansas.  He lived in El Dorado Springs, Cedar, Missouri as a young boy and by 1896 he was in Noble, Cleveland, Oklahoma where he lived until his death at the age of 93 in March of 1967.  Many of his stories were of his years in Missouri and, of course, Oklahoma.

Several years ago I transcribed his handwritten stories and placed them on my website, Ed Garee’s Stories.  Today, I added an index of the names and places Ed mentioned in hopes of helping genealogists and historians.  The links in the index go to my genealogy database.  When you click on the thumbnail image below it will open the pdf version of Ed’s stories, which includes the index.
