On a beautiful sunshine filled day, 19 Jan 2000, this cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale. We were accompanied by the landowner, Nita Key, who graciously showed us the location of this cemetery. Later contact with a G/Gs of Idabel OK fills in the story on this couple buried here. We visited the site again on 18 Dec 2003 and took the GPS readings."
