Additional information from rootsweb Craig Co. OK website:

Ketchum Cemetery was originally known as Willow Springs; Graves from 10 cemeteries were relocated here in 1939 when Grand Lake was being built. The city of Ketchum was also relocated to its present location during the same time period. Over 2000 known burials; earliest marked burial is March 1880. Probably earlier unmarked burials. Several of the relocated burials are from as early as 1872. Large number of unmarked graves. East section has largest number of unmarked graves although they were orginally marked by GRDA in 1940s.
