Catoosa, a Cherokee word (Gha-too-see) meaning
"a hill," is double-countied. Most of Catoosa is in Rogers County,
but the southern part is in Wagoner County. Located in
Green Country, northeast
Catoosa is just off Route 66, about 10 miles northeast of Tulsa.
Catoosa became a cow town after the railroad came, in 1882. The population grew along with the cattlemen's success. William Halsell, of the Bird
Creek Ranch, was one of the area cattlemen. John Schrimsher was Catoosa's first postmaster when the Post Office opened in 1883. The
population reached 240 by 1900. According to the
census of 2010, Catoosa's population was 7,151. (Now estimated at 8,064)
My ancestors were among the first to settle here after the "Trail
of Tears" around 1839, and many of my relatives are still around here today. One of my relatives, known as
"The Cherokee Kid," America's Favorite Indian Cowboy, Will Rogers.
