A Part of the Genealogy
Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time
by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

WANT TO HELP?
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project
be successful. If you are interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information

If you are interested in adding your families' information this website, EMAIL
ME. We'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items
and other historical data find a home here at Oklahoma Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view.
WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH
FOR YOU. ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS WE COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE, WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO IT.
If you would like to be kept informed of our state and
county website updates, subscribe to any of our mailing lists
Founded in 1893
Grant County, located in north-central Oklahoma, lies in
the most northern tier of counties bordered on the north by the state of Kansas. Surrounded by Kay County on the
east, Garfield County on the south, and Alfalfa County on the west, Grant County has a total of 1,003.61 squares
miles of land and water. Situated in the Red Bed Plains and in the Great Salt Plains, the area is noted as a wheat-growing
region. The grassy plains are drained by the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River, which flows from west to east in
the southern half of the county. North-south tributaries such as Pond, Deer, Osage, and Crooked creeks flow into
the Salt Fork. The Chikaskia River (pronounced chi-KAS-kee-uh) originates in the county's northeastern corner, crossing west to east
into Kay County. The county was named after Pres. Ulysses S. Grant.
