Two things always amaze me about the history of Caddo: 1. how many famous and infamous people got their start here, and 2. how few people know anything about them! Today’s item is the marriage of Floyd E. Maytubby who was the governor of the Chickasaw Nation from 1939-1963. His photo hangs in the Chickasaw Cultural Center we recently visited.
The Caddo Herald
July 6, 1917
At the home of the bride’s parents in Oklahoma City last Saturday, Mrs. Floyd Maytubby and Miss Francis E. Leecraft were married in the presence of the family and a few friends.
The newly married folks arrived in Caddo Sunday night and spent a few days with the relatives of the groom, leaving here Wednesday to make their home in Kansas City.
Mr. Maytubby is a Caddo raised boy, being the son of Mr. and Mrs. S. W. Maytubby and who lived here most of his life time, being a graduate of the Caddo Public School in 1911*. He is a young man of many additional qualities and is at present with the National Reserve Bank in Kansas City.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. N. Leecraft of Colbert who are temporarily making their home in Oklahoma City while Mr. Leecraft is a member of the State Board of Affairs. She grew to young womanhood at Colbert and is a charming young woman, having a host of friends.
The many friends of the couple wish them all the hoped for happiness of life.
