Tombstone Tuesday...Gladys LIGON-NERO

Born in 1895 in Woodford, Indian Territory; Gladys was an original Dawes enrollee as a child. She lived in the "country" as the locals called the area where her original land allotment was located.

In 1995 my father and I traveled through the rural area of Ardmore, Oklahoma and discovered what my father believed to be the remnants of her old home still standing.

We were also fortunate to be able to visit Mt. Olive Baptist Church where Gladys was a member for many years. We can only hope her memory will live on through the lives of people she touched during her life time.
