George E. Easley, a native son of Oklahoma and a member of one of the old and prominent families of the state, is now living retired at No. 1326 Johnstone avenue, Bartlesville, receiving a substantial income from his oil holdings. He was born near Pawhuska, Indian Territory, February 19, 1895, his parents being William and Margaret (Reward) Easley, the former a native of Kansas, while the latter was born in Indian Territory and is of Osage extraction. The father came to this state over forty years ago during-the territorial period and has since been an active and influential factor in its agricultural development. His operations have been conducted on an extensive scale and he now resides on Mission creek in Osage county, where he owns over two thousand acres of land, on which he raises stock. The mother also survives, and they are widely known and highly respected residents of this section of the state.

George E. Easley acquired his education in the schools of Chillicothe, Missouri, and Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and during the World war he was first stationed at Camp Greenleaf, Georgia, being attached to the Medical Corps of Evacuating Ambulance Company No. 18, and was later sent overseas, remaining abroad for ten months. He is now living retired in Bartlesville, receiving large royalties from oil.

Mr. Easley was united in marriage to Miss Marie Watkins, who is also a native of this state, her birth having occurred on Jesse creek. Her parents were Alexander and Martha (McClarney) Watkins, the former a native of Kentucky, while the latter was born in Cuba, Missouri. As a child the father went to Arizona Territory, being numbered among its pioneer settlers. He was an honored veteran of the Civil war and his demise occurred in Washington, D. C., on the 28th of June, 1911. The mother survives and is now living at No. 817 Dewey Avenue, Bartlesville. To Mr. and Mrs. Easley have been born two daughtets, Pauline Marie and Martha George.
