J. C. Perryman (con't)

Alabama town of the Indians. J. C. Perryman never moved into Tulsa proper, preferring to remain on his farm with his wife and son. Josiah, as he was known to many, was very friendly with the white people who came into this country. Whenever there were misunderstandings between the white men and the Indians he was willing to serve as arbitrator. He was one of the first elders of the First Presbyterian church although he lived what was a great distance in the country on bad days in that time, he was regular in his attendance. He died in 1889 and there was general mourning through the Creek Nation.
