I was told that the Naming of Idabel Oklahoma was from two Aunts named Ida and Bell by My great grandmother before she died. For years i could not confirm it until I ran accross an Internet site that said that Idabel was named for the two daughters of A Choctaw citizen named ida and Bell. Idabel is located in MCCurtain County. The question I would like to know is the full name of this Choctaw citizen and the full name of his two Daughters. If anyone can provide me with this information I would greatly appreciate it.

The community was named after Ida and Belle Purnell, daughters of a railroad official. This is the only information that I have. Hope this helps.
