    Residence 30 Jan 1903  Rocking 4 Road, Ardmore, Carter, Oklahoma, United States Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    Living on "The Hulsey Place" 10 miles NW of Ardmore 
    • Quit Claim Deed indicates that J. L. Cordum paid $580 to T. S. Ross, who then transferred ownership of the property to Will Pickens. The property is described:
      "All of the improvements on what is known as The Hulsey Place located about 10 miles NW of the town of Ardmore, and being the place where J L Cordum now resides, including about 80 acres in cultivation and about 120 acres of timber land."
      Further investigation of land deeds give the location as the south half of the northeast quarter of Section 30, Township 30 South, Range 1 East. Overlaying the old maps onto current Oklahoma maps, that puts the location of "the Hulsey place" somewhere near Rocking 4 Road, outside of Ardmore.
