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.
