Grant and Laura Boyd's farm was successful, and they also built and operated a hotel in the nearby town of Fay, Oklahoma. I don’t know much about my grandmother’s childhood, except that she attended school with some Indian children who camped across the river from her parents’ farm. She apparently had a low opinion of these Indians, which of course didn’t go over well with my mother, but one of her classmates, a Cheyenne Indian named David Oakeater, turned out pretty well. He got an education, was converted to Christianity and became an Episcopal minister, a bishop, and was later canonized by the Episcopal Church for his work among his people.
