|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From the Town of Wink take Farm Road 1232 just past Monument Draw. Turn right on Winkler County Road 201 for about 1/4 of a mile. The cemetery was on the right side of the road in a depression.
For many years this area was under water from the run off from the oil field. The ground is still white from salt residue. There is nothing left.
Oil field and pipe line workers and their families lived in tents and shacks during the oil boom days in the late 1920's.
Almost all the people who died here were shipped back to their homes for burial. They had no roots here. Any local people were buried in Kermit, the county seat.
