|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located South of Fairfax in what is called "The Bend" area...
A peninsula created by the twisting of the Arkansas river. To reach the cemetery;
Leave Fairfax on the old Ponca City road (River Road) West.
Nine miles, Turn South 1 mile then turn back West for three miles. At this time is a tank battery on the left side of the road that almost obscures the turn to the left. Take the road to the top of the hill and the cemetery is located on the crest, to the right.
A record of the names on the stones was made in 1986.
A few names have been added from personal knowledge of relatives. The original work is on file with the Fairfax Genealogical Society. There are several unmarked graves and one unreadable stone. Some markers were only sandstone with scratched initials. A written record was once kept but it's location has not been discovered.
