EGS Meeting and Program for August 19, 2019: The Boley Farmers and Merchants Bank Robbery
Andre' Head will present "The Boley Farmers and the Merchants Bank Robbery" at the Monday, August 19th meeting of the Edmond Genealogical Society (EGS). The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Edmond Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), 1315 East 33rd St., in Edmond.
Head's program will give you details on what happened to the gang and what ultimately happened to Charley Arthur Floyd, nicknamed "Pretty Boy" Floyd.
Andre' became an avid genealogist, devoting years of research to family heritage. He has discovered previously unknown data on six-plus generations of his own family. He is founder and CEO of the Coltrane Group, an organization committed to preserving the rich heritage and deep history of Oklahoma's historic all-black towns. Mr. Head is currently working on the restoration of the Boley Farmers and Merchants Bank, the scene of his presentation. Mr. Head has produced a documentary about The Crown Jewel (Boley) and its annual rodeo. The Coltrane Group also offers several different chartered bus tours of Oklahoma's historic black towns guided by Andre' and his wife. Head also created and is President of the Black Genealogy Research Group (BGRG) which meets monthly at the Oklahoma History Center.
Andre' is eager to share with you the rich history and continued progress of the historic all-black towns of Oklahoma.
