I have a copy of your grandfather Robert DeMoss book A Look at the History of Nowata Oklahoma. It was presented to my mother Melva Fry in 1987 from her brother Wayne per the inscription. So that kind of narrows down the time frame as to when he wrote the book. As we know, it has been revised and reissued. I bought several copies from the museum when I was there in 2010. My Dad's class reunion 1940 meets in Nowata every year. They just had their 73rd and final reunion in Sept 2013. I was lucky enough to speak to Robert Demoss in 2010 and tell him how much I appreciated his book. I also found out I was kin to his wife, through my grandmother Alma Coker. He gave me a copy of another book he wrote State of Thieves which was the history of Civil War battles in Oklahoma which was copyrighted 2004.

Hi Dorothy! Robert W. DeMoss is my grandfather. He actually wrote that book sometime between 1980-2005...I will have to find that exact book to see when he published it. Robert is still alive and kicking, living with my mother on Keystone Lake. I'm very glad you enjoyed his book on the history of his wonderful home town!!
