Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is located approximately nine miles east of Stilwell in Adair County, Oklahoma. In 1937, Robert L. Thomas wrote about this cemetery through his work with the Works Progress Administration. He interviewed Ida Mae Hughes who stated the following, "When I was a girl I attended Elm Hill Baptist Church with my mother, who was a full blood Cherokee. . . . I enjoyed going to church and most all my people are Baptist. The old church was called the Elm Hill Church and it is about nine miles east of Stilwell in Adair County. The building has been torn down but the old family graveyard is still in my memory and it has grown to be a large graveyard . . .My ancestors started a cemetery on our farm in the Elm Grove neighborhood in 1845."
