Oklahoma City in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma — The American South (West South Central)
Marcy's Survey of the Red River
The Red River Journey
Guided by Sucktumaquay, or Black Beaver, of the Delaware tribe, Marcy mapped the headwaters of two major forks of the Red River, discovered new species of animals, and negotiated with the Wichita people. Marcy subsequently published a guide book for westward migrants titled The Prairie Traveler. The information held within the book would not have been possible without Marcy's relationship with Black Beaver.
