This burial site is located 3 miles east and approximately 2 1/2 miles south of Bentley, Ok, on Bob Rains farm. Gwen Walker canvassed this cemetery, February 21, 1980. This gravesite is not only abandoned, but has been demolished. The stones have been bulldozed down, and are buried under the sod. Your enumerator, and Mr. Bob Rains spent much time and effort excavating these stones in order to record the information. Mr. Rains estimates there were, at one time, 8 or 9 graves. Six stones were recovered. This area is still referred to as "East Allison Prarie", and is the site where the East Allison schoolhouse once stood. The area derived its name from the Allison family.
Allison, Josephine; Daughter of L. J. and Emma Allison
Allison, Sophe; Wife of L. E. Allison
