20 'TEXLAHOMA' URGED AS THE 49TH STATE; Border Section of Texas and Oklahoma Considers Itself Forgotten Land. By DALE MILLER. May 26, 1935, Sunday Section: REVIEW OF THE WEEK EDITORIALS, Page E6, 466 words GALVESTON, Texas, May Texlahoma, a forty-ninth State in the Union, comprised of counties in Western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle, with a combined population exceeding a million, would be created if a proposal being placed before citizens of both States were approved. [ This is from the New York Times.

21 American pioneer Daniel Boone also had a thing for the "sylvania" suffix. If he'd had his way, Kentucky would have been called Transylvania and we'd be placing bets on horses at the Transylvania Derby.

23 Brigham Young, Mormon leader decided to move the Mormons west to a place that had no white settlements. Thus began the Mormon exodus to the Salt Lake basin in the mid-1840s. It wasn't long before Young petitioned Congress to create a new state for his people. Although the Mormon leader wanted a giant property, he skillfully drew boundaries to avoid conflicts with established outposts such as the California gold fields or Oregon's newly popular Willamette Valley. And he made sure to grab a bit of coastline in southern California. At this point in history, southern California was pretty empty. Hard to imagine. Young's super-sized state never came to be, mostly because of an anti-Mormon bias then pervasive in American culture.
