Dewar history:

The town of Dewar, Oklahoma was named after William Peter Dewar, my wife's grandfather. William Peter Dewar was a M.O. & G. Railroad Section Boss. Oil and coal were important factors in settling this area. The railroad connected Henryetta, OK, to Muskogee, OK. A depot was built along the railroad and a settlement of railroad workers established. This settlement became Dewar. The first edition of the Dewar Telegram newspaper was published Thursday, May 7, 1914. Dewar's boom days came and went. In the late 1930's and early 1940's the local coal mines closed and production was reduced at the oil and gas leases. In recent years the town has been growing and is an active community with an excellent school system.

A William Kenefic was instrumental in hiring William Peter Dewar. William Peter Dewar's daughter was Irene Gladys Dewar. Irene Dewar was named after one of the three daughters of William Kenefic--Rose, Mona and Irene. It is also interesting to note that there is a Kenefic (Atoka County) town in Oklahoma.
