Probable late 1800's
The town of Boswell, Oklahoma in the southeastern part of the state was named for my father, Ammie Victor Boswell. My father was an engineer working for Carnegie Steel Company and was involved with the laying of rail lines through that part of the state. The Boswell community was just a camp for rail workers and they needed a name in order to have postal service to the area.
My father was born near Golden City, Missouri in 1868, yes, just three years after the end of the civil war! I was born January 22, 1935 when dad was 67 years old and he lived until I was 10 years of age.
He did not live to see my three sons and six grandchildren. He married my mom in 1934, she was Wynema Crabtree Ward Boswell, a native of Mcalester, Oklahoma.
