  • LINCOLN, OK - Like Wannamaker, Lincoln was primarily a black (African-American) settlement.  Lincoln was pre-sold by the lot to black pioneers prior to the Land Run of April 22, 1889. When the settlers arrived, they found that they had been duped and that there was no town at all. They were determined, though, and built a town on the site despite their bad luck. Lincoln ultimately failed, however, and only the small cemetery remains.

    No original structures survive.

  • MYRTLE, OK - had a post office, school and various businesses and homes. Uncertain when the town disbanded, but likely about the same time that the Rock Island railroad was built about 6 miles to the west. This severely impacted the towns of Union, Myrtle, Wannamaker, Lincoln, Columbia and others. Only a couple of original Myrtle houses remain, but they are in disrepair and are abandoned. The Myrtle schoolhouse was sold around 1930 and moved two miles south and 3/4 mile west where it remains today as a garage/barn.

  • UNION, OK - founded by my great-great uncle, George Franklin Ingle and his brothers Marcus Lafayette Ingle and Barnett Chastain Ingle. Union had a school, church, businesses and several homes. A general store remained there long after the town had folded and later became a country store and gas station. It closed up in the early 1960s. The Union school house was sold and moved to the town of Dover about 1936 where it was used as a tool shed for the Dover Public School and is still there today. Only one original abandoned house and the church remains at Union today (2007).
