Joshua made the "run" into Oklahoma and settled in Tonkawa where three children were born (son Henry Wadsworth died at age 6 mos). They sold out and moved to Eureka, Kansas, where the last two girls were born. They came to Tulsa County in 1905 settling in Alsuma. At statehood they bought a farm and built a house at 71st and Peoria. He was a farmer and his land was from Peoria to the river north beyond 66th and south to the bend in the Arkansas River. He had a dog race track along the river just north of 66th and built the Riverside Park with a swimming pool and a dance hall just south of their house. The corner of 71st and Peoria was known as "Cline Corner" in the early days. Written and contributed by Joan Thurman Case.
