The Pioneer Family Of E.D. Sheets

Researched and written by Stephen Dock

Ernest and Eva Sheets, parents of E.D. Sheets, moved to Old Greer County in 1895. Mr. Sheets traded his team and wagon to a Mr. Dickson for 320 acres on the east side of the mountain where Granite, OK is now. There was a large pecan grove where the county would have a Fourth of July celebration. People came and camped in covered wagons. E D remembers that Ellison Carrol, the world champion at the time, was there riding an iron-gray horse.
