I was born in Shamrock in 1932. My Dad, Howard Garner, had a barber shop next to the Rosenbrough store. We moved from Shamrock in 1940 & ended up in Drumright. I would like to know if anyone knows what year the downtown of Shamrock burned. I think it happened on a 4th of July. There were only about 4 buildings on the north side of the street left, that I remember. I had always thought that fire was what caused so many business' to leave Shamrock. Would appreciate any information.

my mothefr golda (goldie) gratham and my uncle gilbert (mutt) grantham both graduat4d from shamrock high class of 43. both of them were members of the cherokee tribe. my grandmother had to go to the school each year to sign so the school could get what she called indian money for them. i am trying to find out where all the old school records were sent when the high school closed so i can get their tribal indian number to assist in research in our family history history. any help would greatly be appreciated. drove through the town a few years ago. really nothing there now. before my mother's death i did take her back for a visit. they did open the old museum for her and would you believe it the word got out that she was in town and a couple of the people that she went to hs with still lived in town and came to visit with her. she really enjoyed that. everyone have a merry christmas.

I was recently looking at the Shamrock Fire Dept site and it looks like ya'll are trying to get some new fireman equipment like we are back here. We are in need of a brushhog truck, 10 gallon tanker truck and a sick people tansporter. Plus sirens on our step ladder truck go woop but don't go woooo so we need to get those fixed too. If you have had any success with raising funds, we would love to hear your ideas. We've tried everything from a daddy daughter auction night to trying to collect money in our boots on the side of RR 2, but we don't have clean enough boots so no one wants to put monney in them. Keep up the good work fellow fireman brothers and good luck!

Thank you so much for this site. I lived in Shamrock in 1980. I was only 5 then, but it was such a safe town that my sister and I would walk to the store to get things on credit for my mom. There was a dear little old lady named Phebee that would always call us over to her house so she could give us watermellon. My mom worked at the bar as a waitress. I also attended the Shamrock school and was in the same class as my sister who is 2 years younger. Too bad schools cant still be like that lol. Another thing I remember is we had to walk to a well to get water because our water would come out of the drain like rust.

I lived in Shamrock in the late 70s. My dad was mayor for a short time and my mom was city clerk. My family resided in the old Haught House. Which was otherwise known as the green building, Brown's Grocery, Shamrock Trading Co. and The Shamrock Museum. When I lived there it housed the grocery store/ cafe'/ gas station/ feed store/ city hall & a residence above. It was a truly memorable time of my life! I have current photos of the town here http://www.flickr.com/photos/lynnola/sets/72157604309468876/
I'll post some more from back then whenever I run across them.

In the POST OFFICE section, there is mention of a song "My mother and father were Irish". When I was in the fourth grade, we had a spelling contest. Our teacher arranged us in two groups and the losing group had to do a banquet for the winning side. Of course, I was lucky enough to be on the losing team..........so....we presented the winners with a banquet with an Irish theme. One of the songs we learned to sing for the winners was......"My mother and father were Irish". There was a verse about putting the pig in the parlor and making him Irish, too. We also had a verse going...."we put the cow in the Kitchen, we put the cow in the kitchen, we put the cow in the kitchen and made him Irish too."

That was around 1939 and I still remember that song, along with "Oh, Paddy Dear and did you hear?"

Good times......caring teachers......Jim Ramsey

A SHAMROCK CHRISTMAS STORY

WHEN I WAS A CHILD, IN THE THIRTIES, WE FREQUENTED THE LITTLE BAPTIST CHURCH IN SHAMROCK. CHRISTMAS TIME WAS ALWAYS A SPECIAL TIME, THERE. WE WOULD ALL MEET, PROBABLY ON CHRISTMAS EVE, AND HAVE A CHRISTMAS PROGRAM. I DON'T RECALL WHAT THE PROGRAM WAS ABOUT BECAUSE WHAT CAME NEXT WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE SERVICE....THE ONE I REMEMBER.

AT THE END OF THE SERVICE, SANTAS CLAUS WOULD COME OUT WITH A BAG OVER HIS SHOULDER, FILLED WITH SMALL PAPER SACKS. THESE LITTLE SACKS CONTAINED AN OURNGE, AN APPLE, SOME ENGLISH WALNUTS, PECANS AND A FEW PIECES OF HARD CANDY...RIBBON CANDY, FILLED HARD CANDY AND THOSE LITTLE ROUND CANDIES WITH IMAGES OF CHRISTMAS TREES AND STARS IN THE CENTER. THESE LITTLE SACKS WITH THE PIECES OF FRUIT AND CANDY WERE QUITE A TREAT TO DEPRESSION ERA KIDS WHO ONLY GOT THOSE THINGS ON SPECIAL OCCASTIONS. IT DIDN'T TAKE MUCH TO THRILL US KIDS IN THOSE DAYS.

TO THIS DAY, WHENEVER I SMELL ORANGES AT CHRISTMAS TIME, I REMEMBER SEVENTY YEARS AGO, AND THOSE LITTLE SACKS, WHEN CHRISTMAS WAS REALLY FESTIVE...........JIM RAMSEY

I was born in Shamrock in 1948. Have many wonderful memories of that little town. A place in the 50's where parents did not have to wonder what there children were doing or where there children were. Everyone in town was a neighbor, and if you misbehaved your parents would find out about it. If you had a problem almost anyone on any street would help you out. You could ride your bike anywhere and were safe.
My children even were sad when they heard of the school burning. I would take them buy there and even played on the play equipment a few times. My parents (Newell & Hazel Pittser) have both passed away and I don't get by there there much any more, but home will always be 1/2 block north and across the street west of Joe Brown's store.

http://groups.msn.com/MyMothersFamily There is one addition that I want to add to my messages here. My mother Vera Kirkpatrick McKinney died on May 09, 1988 in Bristow, OK. My dad James Albert McKinney has also passed away. He died March 28, 1990 in Bristow. My mom and dad are both buried in the Shamrock cemetery. My grandma and grandpa Kirkpatrick are buried there, too, and so is my Aunt Deanie (Myrldean Burnice Kirkpatrick Davisson.) Aunt Deanie died in the early 1980's. Her husband Bob L. Davisson is gone now too but he's buried at Drumright. My uncle Leo Kirkpatrick died about 1996 or 1997. He's buried in Odessa, Texas.

There are about four generations of my family buried in the Shamrock cemetery going all the way back to my gggrandparents William Madison Willingham and Margret Martin Willingham. My great-grandparents Elias Edward Wade and Luemmra Willingham Wade are also buried there and several of my great-uncles and aunts including my cousin Frankie Beck's mother Azalee (Wade) Hinshaw. I hope to be buried there too someday. Carlyon Sue McKinney

I had the opportunity to visit Shamrock for the first time yesterday. My 2nd great grandmother - Francis Lovena Prewitt Shipley - is buried there. Apparently she lived there around 1925 as that is when she died. Also, my great grandmother - Hester Catherine (Kate)Shipley Adams -died there in 1926 however she is buried in Wewoka.

Shamrock looks very sad. I wish I could help build the town back up. Thanks for having this site.

I came to Shamrock in 1962 when my Dad (Franklin Pearl Pittser) moved us back from California when he retired from Disneyland. The town was way past its prime when I started living there but it was still an interesting place to live. I knew everybody in town and had lots of relatives living there. Like Roy (Willey) the school held a very fond set of memories for me, especially Mrs. Hunt, my first grade teacher. She was real task master but a very good person and a kind a loving teacher. I credit her with my lifelong desire for learning. Other fond memories of the town include Eric and Mary Feren, the old bank vault with the big hole blown out in the back, the old car dealership with the 1916 (is that right?) rock inscription, the old bank that was the P.O. and the notoreity of having been robbed by Pretty Boy Floyd during the gangster era, working at Brown's grocery and the cafe (following in the footsteps of my cousin Larry Pittser), hunting and fishing in the woods just outside of town, watching the old courthouse being torn down and leaving the jail still standing,riding up and down depot hill on my bike, and on and on. I loved going to the big town of Drumright with my parents on Saturday and maybe to Cushing which was the REALLY big town :). I used to run errands and deliver groceries to people like Ida Banks and Essie Meyers, and the Farmers. I learned a lot about people and interaction skills in that litle town that helped me tremendously later in life. We had the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly right there in that little microcosym of a town but everyone pretty much got along and it all worked out. Wow, It wasnt such a bad childhood at all :)

I just want to let you know how glad I am to find this site! My cousin Frankie Hinshaw Beck told me about it. I love it! I didn't grow up in Shamrock but my mother did. The pictures and the articles brought back old memories of the stories that my mother told me!

My mother was Vera Kirkpatrick. She grew up in Shamrock in the 1920's and early 30's. She attended the Shamrock Grade School. So did her brother Leo and sister Myrldean (Deanie)Kirkpatrick. Elsie Haught taught my Aunt Deanie and she also taught me after they closed the Shamrock school. She moved to Bristow and taught me in the sixth grade at Washington Grade School in Bristow. She told me that my Aunt Deanie put a frog in her desk once!

Many of my mother's cousins attended school at Shamrock, too. My cousin Frankie, the one who told me about this website, is from Shamrock. So are her brother Harold and her sisters Connie, Dracy, Sheila, and Barbara (Kitty). Their mother was Azalee (Wade) Hinshaw. She grew up in Shamrock, too. My mother was also related to Ida Mae (Willingham)Banks, Theron and Donald Bearden, Katie (Boyles) Shaw, and the Willingham families from the Shamrock and Stroud area.

Even though I didn't grow up in Shamrock, I have been there many, many times. When I was growing up my grandparents, the Kirkpatricks, lived about 4 miles north of Shamrock. I would love to hear from anyone from Shamrock and we'll exchange stories. I'll tell them the stories that my mother told me as a child.

I graduated from Shamrock High in 1953. Sixteen were in the graduating class. We lived one and half miles South of Town. There were nine of us that attended Shamrock Schools. They were Laymon, Armel, Delmus, Monrow, Ila Finney Marker, Olan, Woodrow, Anna Bell Finney Upton and myself. Olan and I are the only ones living now. Olan lives in Oroville, Ca. He moved their in 2005 after living in Pampa, Tx. since 1995. I have lived in Fremont, Ca. for 50 years. When Monrow was living we use to attend most Memorial Days in Shamrock. There are still allot of memories there and it was really sad to hear about the High School burning down. I enjoyed reading all the notes. Rose

I then transferred to Depew High School where I graduated in 1965. I am the daughter of John and Gladys Fox. I have 2 brothers who attended Shamrock also, J R of Broken Arrow, and Richard of Bristow.
My husband attended grades 1-3 at Shamrock before moving to Drumright where he graduated. He is the son of Glen and Katherine Flatt. He has 2 brothers Dwain and Dwitt, both living in Drumright. 2 sisters, Debbie, deceased, and Denise of Sapulpa.

My family and I have many fond memories of Shamrock! Jack and Jerri Slagle were my parents and I have two brothers, Jack Jr and John - lots of great memories at that Shamrock Grade School - I was sad when I heard it had burnt down. I have told my two sons about the good times and the bad while living in Shamrock, some they belived and some they don't! ha Shirley Fox and I still keep in touch and I must say that is a long long friendship! My Daddy cut our house into and we moved it to Drumright the year Shamrock loss it's high school so that I could go to high school 'in the big city'! Wonderful memories of wonderful people!

I was born in Shamrock in March of 1932 and our family which included 5 boys, a dog and a cat moved to Florida in 1940. I went through the 2nd grade there and have many fond memories of our childhood there. Would be interested in hearing from anyone from that era. Our neighbors were the Howard's and the Feris family. Nick and his beer joint were across the street and the cotton gin and ice plant across the other street. I now live in the Atlanta, Ga metro area and retired.

I do genealogy. If you happen to have any pictures with Caldwell, Clark, Loveland, Cargill, Billings I would love copies of them at my expense. Also old Shamrock. This would be about 1917 to 1950's.

Thanks for your help,
Linda Caldwell

My great grandfather E. E. Cargill owned the Variety Store.
His wife was Mintie Loutisha Billings Cargill.

My step grandfather J. (John) R. Rosebrough owned the Grocery, General Merchandise Store. John was also on the school board. His wife was Stella Ann Cargill Caldwell Rosebrogh.

My great uncle F. Connie Mize owned the F. C. Mize Service Station. He married Della Cargill sister of Stella.

I believe my greatfather James B. Caldwell was major of Shamrock in

Born in Shamrock, 1930---moved to Florida in 1940. My uncle, Connie Mize, owned the town's Sinclair Station, next door to Rosenbrough's Grocery. We lived across the street from Nick who had the only bar in town. On the east, across the street, was the Cotton Gin and the Ice Plant. Many, many fond memories of that little town. The Howards lived next door to us, two empty lots away.
Outside toilet, running water, when the town pump worked, went to school in the old Grammer school, across the street from the Baptist Church......Elsie Haught was first grade teacher and her sister the second grade. My juncle, John Erve Cargill was the town Doctor. For such a small town we had a wealth of things to do................

I was in the class that graduated in 1948. We came to Shamrock in my sophmore year, moving from Shidler, OK. We bought the Cargil house and lived ther until we sold it and moved to 20 acres north of town. We had to draw water from a well for drinking water and water to was in. Took quite a few buckets to wash with. Yes we did have a outdoor privy. Ha. I had an old model A ford. We had a lots of fun in it, making trips to Drumright, chasing jack rabbits near the grave yard. A lot of our friends have passed away and we sure miss them. Could anyone post the old pictures of the graduating classes that were hanging in the old Haught house. The school house has burned and many memories of going to school ther are now memories that I will cherish foir the rest of my life. J.D. Endicott

Our family moved to Shamrock when I was 6 years old - just 50 years ago. At my age, it seem to be forever. I think of it now as a "Lost Mayberry" because there are many great memories as I was growing up there. I could name you most every person that lived in each house - kids had to know so we could go trick-or-treating. The Greenfield Grocery burned down, the railroad tracks were taken up, and Joe Brown had just moved his grocery store. Elsie Haught, Amy Cooper, and Julia Primm were teachers in the lower grades. James Grubbs and I. D. Henry were Supt. and Prin. The P.O. was in the old bank building and run by Mrs. Endicott. Ed and Alva Gimmel ran the Sinclair station (with high priced gas at over 30 cents a gallon - we need Ed and Alva back!). Nick ran the bar and lived next door to it - greaving after the death of his wife. Eric Farren was "the law" and he and his wife, Mary, made memorial wreaths and other things in the old building next to the post office. The Sinclair Plant was chugging along on the lease. TeenTown was active in the building across from the P. O. for a while - and it was a no-no to climb the water tower....but some kids did - I did not make it very far but the view was great! Lots of things gone - but there are a lot of things still there - if only in the memory of the little Willey boy.
