|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From Rocky, Ok, take Hwy 55 west 2 miles, then 2 miles north, 1 mile east, and ½ mile south. The cemetery is now located between two channels of water from the Rocky Lake.
Located in the Rainey Township; Legal: SW ¼ Section 11, Township 8 N, Range 18 W.
On 3-3 1903, Meredith Grissom deeded 1 acre of farmland to the Rocky Cemetery Association. The road into the cemetery is thru farmland and the cemetery has not been used in approx. 50 years. Someone related this story to me. “ One year we had extremely heavy rainfall in the area and the cemetery was completely flooded. When the water began to recede, my friends and I went to the cemetery and found that a great number of the stones had floated away, while some were piled in the corner of the cemetery in a small grove of trees. We were teenagers at the time and thought it was really creepy.” I can believe this happened because of the large number of stones that were missing when I visited the cemetery. It is also locally known as Old Rocky Cemetery, and Batchlor Family Cemetery.
