List and Information

Below are the known cemeteries in Okfuskee County. Part of the list is from the National Geodetic Survey and part is from the indexes done by Shirley Custar. The possibility exists that the Geodetic Survey knows a cemetery by one name while Shirley Custar knows it by something altogether different. If you are aware of a duplication of names, please advise County Coordinator.

Locations are given where known. On-line indexes are slowly being added to the USGenWeb database. Links for the cemeteries with on-line indexes and directions are provided. If a "Custar Index" is indicated, there is a printed index published by Shirley Custar (see the Okfuskee County Reference and Look-ups pages for more information.)

A map of the County with known cemetery locations is available on the Maps/Photos page.
