Driving instructions for the following don't completely match locations shown on the township maps. None of these were shown by name on the topographic maps and none were picked up by GNIS:
Jacobs: This cemetery is located from the intersection of State Highway 56 and U. S. 270, just on the south edge of Wewoka, five miles south on 56, turn east (left) and go two miles, you’ll see the Middle Creek Church, turn south and go about 1/4 mile on dirt road. The cemetery sits on the west (right) side of the road. The cemetery is fenced and is in a little grove of trees.
McBryde/Peebles: Located north of Holdenville, Ok, from the intersection of Hwy 48 (Broadway of America) and Hwy 270, go 1 mile east, turn north on Whitty Road, go 2.4 miles. (On the cornor of the third intersection.) This was near a small community called Whitty.
Robinson: Located, from Holdenville, Ok., 7 miles north on Hwy 48 (Broadway of America), 1 and 3/4 miles west and 1/8 mile south into a pasture.
Stubblefield: Located southeast of Holdenville. From the intersection of US 270 and HWY 48 (Broadway Of America), go east on 270, 5 miles. Turn south, right, and go 4 miles to E/W 137, turn east, left, and then back south, right at the first road, less than .1of a mile. Continue south until you reach a wire gate, about 1.4 miles. Go through the gate and follow the road until it comes to a second gate, about .4 of a mile and then drive to the south through the pasture. You can see the cemetery just after going through this second gate.
Finding an Online Canvass or List
Once you know the name of a cemetery and the county it's in, the next step is finding any online canvasses or lists of burials. A few counties have direct links for individual cemeteries, but those are obvious when the search engine leads you to one of them. In most cases you must search the resources directly.
Many of the OKGenWeb county sites also include cemetery information. Use the clickable map to get to the county/counties you're interested in. (If you a new Coordinator, we have a special Help Section for matching contributions of cemetery data with mapped locations.)
The Oklahoma Cemetery Mailing List is also accumulating canvasses, organized by county. Go to its Home Page for the latest information, and select the county or use its search engine to find a specific canvass.
