McCorkle Cemetery
Also known as: Brown Cemetery
near intersection of E0890 Rd and N3410 Rd
Chandler
Lincoln County
Oklahoma  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery is located on the southeast corner of the junction of EO890 and N3410 Roads. Go north from Chandler on Highway 18 past the turnpike to the first section line, known as the Lake Road. Go due east two and three-quarters of a mile, and that is the intersection of the two roads named above. The intersection is marked.
The cemetery cannot be entered from the east side because of a barbwire fence. The best entry is about twenty yards west of the intersection on the north side. However, the visitor is advised to bring a machete because at present (May 2013) the cemetery is in a state of complete neglect, hardly better than a jungle. This parcel of land belongs to the City of Chandler, and it is hoped that they will clean and repair it in the near future.
In 1965 Mrs. Joe Gibson owned this land, which was homesteaded by her grandfather, Joel McCorkle. She said she counted 36 graves at one time but knew that there were many more burials. She thought that after the inscriptions were recorded the McCorckle graves were moved to Oak Park Cemetery, Chandler. According to the cemetery records at Oak Park, however, Nellie Mae McCorkle is the only McCorkle buried there.
Most of the graves are illegible sandstone markers. Because of the wild undergrowth, fewer than fifteen of them were visible in May of 2013.
