This geographical area of the United States was ordered into Statehood early by then U.S.President Theodore Roosevelt in an attempt to lower the high price of crude oil, which
was $100.00 per 42 gallon barrel since 1885 and was causing a world-wide economic
depression. Due to plentiful and abundant and easily accessable mineral resources, then President Theodore Roosevelt, a genuine War Hero, transformed from Territorial legal status to Statehood legal status after a Presidental Census of 1907, to help lower the price of crude oil, which had caused a world wide economic depression. Interestingly, then President Theodore Roosevelt, the Cowboy President, was not permitted to run for re-election by the New York Republican Party controllers which were the same crude oil speculators wanting him out of the Presidency. Those three crude oil speculators and
bankers were John D. Rockefeller, Samuel Chase, and J.P. Morgan of New York City. So Theodore formed his own political party and ran as a' Bull Moose'. His actions as Chief Executive did, however, result in oil's per barrel price dropping to 'two-bits' or fifty cents per barrel by the year 1910, and a very expansive and worldwide economic business boom lasting many years after the former President's death at 60 years of age of arthritis pain.
The maternal Grandfather of present U.S.Senator John McCain (Arizona), made so much money in The Indian Territory near Okmulgee prior to Statehood, that he never had to work again, and U.S.Senator McCain still receives over $187,000.00 per year from his Maternal Grandfather's Estate, all made in The Indian Territory from when the price of crude oil
had dropped dramatically. Okmulgee County in 1920 produced more crude oil according
to official records, than the entire State of Texas did in 2003! John Mabee, and
J.Paul Getty were just two individuals that were made millionaires from the Morris Oil
Field and the Glenpool oil field. All U.S. Presidents since Theodore Roosevelt had and
used their legal authority to Order the price of Crude oil down, except Jimmy Carter, who
took the price control off crude oil, resulting in a doubling of the price of gasoline in one
month, AND costing Carter his job as President when he was fired by the voters. President
Ronald Regan immediately put crude oil back on price contro by Executive Order the first
week he was in office, which helped the U.S.economy recover dramatically under Regan.
Former President Theodore Roosevelt was a genuine war hero ground soldier in the U.S.Army and the only individual the serve as U.S.President ever to be an awardee of the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions in ground combat in the U.S.Army. Awarded subsequent to his demise by arthritis at sixty years of age. Both of his sons were killed in World Wars. Theodore was the main organizer in promoting and establishing the National Geographic Society, and establishing the National Park system when he, by Executive Order established Yellowstone National Park.
He was a 5th cousin of the later President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, their only relation being by marriage, and that Delano continued Theodore's fuel price controls and extended consumer price controls to all manner of consumer retail goods and services by the Federal Agency named The Office of Price Administration, which continued until President Jimmy Carter de-funded the OPA during his Presidency WHICH RESULTED in Carter's political defeat by Ronald Reagan after regular gasoline was permitted to increase in price 42 cents in one month.!! President Franklin Roosevelt repeatley told and wrote that Theodore Roosevelt was the greatest individual that he had ever met.
Back to Mr. Eden, he built and was Superintendent of the Phillips Refinery Company plant in Okmulgee,Okmulgee was home to four oil refineries at one time during the oil boom period from the Territorial year 1902 until 1924. In the year 2005 the State of Texas' oil production was less than the crude oil production of Okmulgee County in the year 1919. The Phillips 66 Refinery Plant, now being de-constructed, is 3/8 of a mile northeasterly of The Eden House. Neighborhood is mainly retirees, and has many large shade trees. The home next door has been listed for sale by the owner, whom has been retired for many years. This house is suited for a quiet couple or single adult. Please see color photography. Yearly ad valorem taxes are approximately $140.00.
