Cemetery notes and/or description:
Abandoned cemetery six miles south of Ryan off U.S. Highway 81. From Ryan, Oklahoma, travel 6 miles south on US Hwy 81. Turn east onto dirt road(referred to locally as Shady Springs Road). Drive approximately 1/4 to 1/2 mile east, but be looking towards the south and you will be able to catch a glimpse of the old cemetery in a grass pasture about 1/4 mile off the road. It is not easy to see, so look carefully! You can leave your vehicle on the side of the road without causing any problem as it is not heavily traveled (except in dry weather please avoid parking your vehicle over dried grasses or weeds as grass fires can be set by a vehicle's catalytic converter). You will have to negotiate a barbed wire fence at the road's edge but then it is a clear walk (mostly uphill) across a pasture. One corner of the cemetery is rapidly being overtaken by a wild plum thicket. Although the cemetery is not in particularly good shape, it seems like a nice place to be buried, out in the open, out among the bluestem and the cattle.
