I am the great-granddaughter of Jasper Wheatcraft, a resident of Boynton, Oklahoma in the 1920’s. A legend has been passed down through generations about when Jasper had an altercation with a member of the local law enforcement. In researching this event for a book I am writing, I have come across a newspaper article from the Boynton Index in December 1923 that refers to this event and names the officer as Earl Whittaker. Though, in the article my great-grandfather is referred to as Pete Wheatcraft, all the other details line up with the family story I’ve been told. I’m looking for relatives or descendants of Earl Whittaker to find out if the story has been passed down through his family. Please contact me if this is you.
