Have you searched this site which has some of the early Garvin Co. newspapers?http://gateway.okhistory.org/
Could your Wood also have been Woods at different times? I transcribed some of the early Purdy newspaper and found a few items like this one from other newspapers, which were posted years ago:
The Daily Ardmoreite
Ardmore, Carter County, Oklahoma
More Items from February 1908
Purdy, Feb--Many changes have taken place in and around Purdy since the new year came. Some of our best farmers and citizens have gone to other points and their places have been occupied by people who are strangers.
There is at this time a great deal of sickness around Purdy.
MRS. WOODS, wife of GEORGE WOODS, died at this place a few days since.
