Since the early days, the regional economy had been focused on farming and ranching. This would all change when, in the fall of 1915, a cable tool drilling rig owned by Wichita Natural Gas began to drill an oil well on the John Stapleton farm north of town. Day after day the tools stomped their way into the solid earth until at a depth of 670 feet oil was discovered. Word spread like a wind-whipped prairie fire and the black gold rush was on.

  MAIDEN /SELLERS

Margaret and William had 10 children, 7 boys & 3 girls.  Of the 7 boys, 6 of
them removed to Butler County, Kansas, in 1878 and never returned to Iowa.  The
1 that remained in Iowa (James M. Maiden), died on October 18, 1896. All three of the girls married and remained in Iowa, however, none made it to
1925.  Caroline (Maiden) Potter died in 1919 while Elizabeth (Maiden) Shultz
and Rebecca (Maiden) Adamson both died in 1922.

I like your thinking, though.  Was a good idea! :-)
