Coffeyville and South Cofferville were at one time served from the
same central office and from the same machine (located in Kansas).
They probably still are, since it would be illogical to have a second
wire center on the Oklahoma side unless it has grown mightily, which I
don't think it has.
Caney and Copan are about 10 miles apart, not across the street, and
historically have been served from different c.o.'s.
[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Well what about Caney, KS and Dewey,
OK in that case? PAT]
