The handwriting is perfectly readable: Bartlesville – Choctaw – Oklahoma.
Unfortunately, it’s wrong. I know that, and I don’t even know Clara Owen. You see, I grew up in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, so I know that Bartlesville is not in Choctaw County. It’s in Washington County.
The two counties are not even close to each other.
A part of me REALLY wants to index the county as Washington, but I won’t for a couple of reasons:
- It’s possible that the city is wrong instead of the county.
- The arbitrator would absolutely consider it an error.
