The first recorded twins of the state were named after Oklahoma.

Okla and Homa Henry were born just months after statehood in what is now Woodville, Okla. After being flooded out by Lake Texoma, the family of eight moved to Whitewright, Texas. Both sisters have since passed, but their niece Nancy Harrison still lives in the area.
