Census Records

A special thanks to Pat Roberts for transcribing all of our Oklahoma Census records.

Oklahoma was opened to white settlers with the Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889. The earliest extant census for Oklahoma Territory is for 1900, and Oklahoma Territory became a state in 1907. No Culpeppers have been found in any Harmon County censuses prior to 1910.
