NOTE: This database of burials is furnished by Linda Foster and we do thank her for sharing this family information. She has always known this cemetery as the O'Dell Cemetery but judging from the directions she has to the site, it is very likely what is widely known as Caddo Peak cemetery. Hopefully there will be others with "Caddo Peak" lists of burials that can be compared to verify if the two locations are really the same! I would sure like to hear from anyone having information that can help. Send an email to Hugh Swift.
