Kiamichi River Railroad Bridge
Posted August 12, 2011, by carrie l davis (d1685 [at] innova [dot] net)

Sawyer Ok has always been special to me.Daddy lived in Sawyer from 1913 -1921.He moved back to SC in 1922.

He had pictures of the bridge over the Kiamichi both railroad and another bridge. He and cousin ran a merchant boat on the Kiamichi and also a sawmill boat.He had pictures of both boats.

I have been trying to find out something about when the bridges were built but have been unable untill I found this on internet I wonder if the foundations of the bridges are of the pictures he made ? I am very interested to find out about the pictures he has

Thanks
