  • (1) Bettie Sasser

  • (2) Campbell William "Cam" Sasser, Sr.
    b: 1871
    d: 1960 Lawton, Comanche Co, OK
    daughter of Hiram &Serena(Osborne) Helton
    b: 1883

    Posting in the SASSER-L archives
    by Cam's granddaughter,
    Sue Lynn (Sasser) Williams
    My grandfather Cam had been in that area as a younger man, working in
    the oil fields at Burkburnet, TX and in the cattle business. He liked
    it, but returned to KY to get married and "settle down". Granddad was
    an accomplished banjo player and played in the dancebands with the
    folks who went on to establish the Grand Ole Opry. He did marry Ludie
    Helton, aka Lucretia FairLily who was the daughter of a missionary to
    the Cherokee Indians. Granddad had TB after they married, which became
    one of the reasons for leaving KY. They left KY in 1913 and headed to
    Oklahoma on the train...with their three oldest children, Sara, Crit
    and Stanley. Granddad had an uncle (I believe it was....a Gilbert)
    who lived in Lawton. They went to see this uncle and had plans to
    eventually head northwest to Oregon, but Grandad was too ill to travel
    due to the TB....so the contingency from SW OK went without him. He
    and the Uncle then opened a general store in downtown Lawton. I'm not
    sure what happened to the uncle, but Granddad later opened Sasser's
    Grocery. At the time it closed in the mid 70s, it was the business
    opened the longest at the same location in the city of Lawton. He was
    quite an entreprenuer in the grocery field, opening the first
    self-service grocery store in Oklahoma and one of the first west of
    the Mississippi River. This was in the early 1940s. I do know that
    Granddad loved adventure and was prepared to take on about anything
    new. Unfortunately, I was only six years old when he died. But I
    learned a lot about my grandfather when I wrote an award-winning
    essay about him and his role in Oklahoma history. I think I was in
    junior high at the time. His sister Stella spent some time in the
    Lawton area as well, having married D. B. Hale. He also had a cousin
    (?) John who lived in Blanchard, Tuttle or one of those small towns
    just south of Oklahoma City. John married a Sasser also...they had
    about 15 children. Several of these children headed for California
    to seek fame and fortune in the 30s and 40s, as did my oldest uncle
    Crit. Crit and one of John's sons were very well known home builders
    in the area that is now Palm Springs during the 40s. Crit also spent
    time in Bakersfield (?) before moving back to Oklahoma in the 50s.
    One of John's sons, Dakery, worked for Bob Hope as his business
    manager for many years.
