Gip Oklahoma store and postoffice

A composite of a photo of Gip Postoffice in Cobb General Store in Custer County Oklahoma

and a background as I (Betty Cobb Cabaniss) remember it

Barnitz creek in the background

two houses moved together for the Cobb family. 

The store had a full basement with walls formed of local gip rock

which opened at ground level in the rear.

There were several family homes nearby

The well with a windmill was just behind the store

May our actions always honor the ones before us.

Plate given to customers at Gip Store

 A neighbor stopped by one day and asked if I would like to have this saucer that was given to customers in early 1900 at the R R Cobb Store in Gip Oklahoma.
