Cemeteries located in Choctaw
Co Antiocho Cemetery,

information on these cemeteries would be greatly appreciated. As you can see,
the list of cemeteries in Choctaw Co is a long one; and there may be other
cemeteries that are not listed. This page created in 1999 by Jackie Rhodes
Information to be posted on this page should include the name of the cemetery, name of deceased, birth and death dates, any tombstone inscription, or any other information that you might have.
I have found a list of some cemeteries in Choctaw Co and am including them on this page, I would really appreciate any information that anyone has on any of these cemeteries...whether for one tombstone, a complete family or entire cemetery.
If you live in Choctaw Co and would like to contribute to this project and are able to survey a cemetery; I would love to hear from you. This could be a good project for a scout group, church group, school club, or any other organization.
If you are interested in doing some surveys of the cemeteries, but feel you need "instructions or guidelines" on how to do this; please feel free to email me and I will send you information that will help you do a survey. I have tips on how to clean old tombstones without causing further damage to them, and these tips are a MUST for anyone doing cemetery surveys.
Hoping to hear from interested Choctaw Co researchers and residents.
