Please add profiles of those who were born, lived or died in Major County, Oklahoma.

Upon statehood in 1907, Major County was created from southern part of a territorial county. Fairview, which had been settled following the Land Run of 1893, was designated the county seat, and voters reaffirmed the choice on December 22, 1908.

Named for John Charles Major, a representative to the state's 1906 Constitutional Convention, the area was originally settled by large numbers of Kansas Mennonites.

The county experienced "Black Sunday" dust storms on April 14, 1935.
