Other Information: The cemetery is very near a
recreational lake, but deep in the woods. It has in the past been
under water. The fence is broken down around it. There is only one
stone that has an inscription marked approx. 1940, all of the others
are actual stones placed long side up. No names are legible. One
marker has "Lapp Funeral Home, Wilburton, OK" which no
longer exists. I have found no information on the internet about
"Lapp Funeral Home".
