Middle Boggy and Little Boggy crossing near present Atoka to Stringtown:
If you're interested, this is what I've learned about this area....
This area is mentioned often in the ORs. The Ft Smith-Boggy Depot Road converged with the Texas Road just north of present Stringtown (according to Muriel Wright).
About a mile south of Stringtown, the road crossed what is now called North Boggy but is called "Little Boggy" and "East Boggy" in the ORs. Near this crossing was the home of Alex McKinney. McKinney's farm may have been where is now the Atoka Reservoir, a couple of miles northwest of the crossing. McKinney may have purchased Geary's Station (on Butterfield Stage Route) which was advertised for sale in 1858. The present location of Stringtown or nearby was also called Sulphur Springs.
At the site of present Atoka lived Mrs. Flack. On the north side of Atoka where US Hwy 69 crosses Middle (Muddy) Boggy was James Davis' Crossing. Boggy Depot is just about 10 miles southwest.
The Choctaw camped often in this area from Stringtown to Atoka. Pike put the Choctaw regiment (Folsom's) there in the spring of 1862. Steele fell back to this location during Blunt's Perryville Campaign and was joined by Cooper (Aug-Sept 1863) and Bankhead. The Choctaws probably camped there in the winter of 1864-1865. This was where Cooper was consolidating his Indian Division for an offensive in May 1865.
