Wetumka Historical Events

Ethel Hamiltoon was one of the first 100 women attorneys in the state of Oklahoma. She was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar in 1917.

1923, March
Rebecca (Rhone) Smith
My Grandmother, Rebecca (Rhone) Smith, gave birth to my mother, Frances Mae Smith, (#19) on March 4, 1923 in Wetumka, Oklahoma. Three days later, (March 7,1923) Rebecca died leaving my mother to be cared for by Rebecca's sister, Annie Mariah Davis, of San Benito, Texas. Rebecca was married to Robert B. Smith of Wetumka, Oklahoma. To this union were born 19 children in and around Wetumka and Hughes County, Oklahoma. Frances Mae Smith was born premature and weighed just barely 3lbs. Back in those days, so I am told, she was not expected to live. But Frances Mae passed away on July 31,2001 at age 78. I do know that Annie Davis and her husband Samuel Davis legally adopted Frances Mae and changed her name to Donnie Delores Davis. She married my father, Maceo D. Mitchell, on August 11,1943.

I suspect Rebecca Rhone Smith hails from Fayette County, Texas but am not sure. I am hoping that a marriage certificate of her marriage to Robert B. Smith of Wetumka, Oklahoma can be found that would possibly provide more information about Rebecca's DOB/SSN. Any help or information you can provide about Rebecca, Frances Mae or Robert B. Smith would be greatly appreciated. Please email Kenneth Mitchell at if you have any information or insight. Thanks

Wetumka Community Events

The last Saturday of August each year
2000, August 26
Sucker Day
Place: down town streets
Time: 8 a.m. to midnight
Sponsored by: Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club
The Sucker Day Festival is a celebration of laughing at ourselves for having been suckered by a circus flimflam man in the early 1950s. He came to town selling advanced tickets, advertising, etc. for a circus. The business people stocked up on hotdogs, soda pop, hamburgers and hay for the elephants. No circus appeared. The money was gone. Rather than let the food go to waist, a free celebration was held, with the community invited to polk fun at the business leaders for having been suckered. This has become an annual celebration, with arts and crafts, antiques, tractors, high school bands, food booths, rodeo, gospil singing, a street dance and parade. Come help us celebrate.
Sucker Day is celebrated the last Saturday of August. Contact the Wetumka Chamber of Commerce for information.
