"Tenderfoot" Mining Company

From the Miami Record-Herald Newspaper

On May 15, 1914, the above item appeared in the local newspaper.  The area of the lease and the "Tenderfoot" drill site is just west of the current city limits of Miami, Oklahoma.  The McConnell-Barnes Mine was located just across what is now
P Street and west of the old B. F. Goodrich plant (Goodrich Blvd.) in Miami.  The area was very productive early  in the history of the mining field, in Ottawa County.  At that time, most of the mining was being conducted in the Commerce, Oklahoma area and the McConnell-Barnes strikes.
