Sophia's gravestone reads "Sophia, Wife of Major John Pitchlynn, Born Dec.27,1773, Died Dec. 18, 1871". The following statement appears at the bottom of page 17 in the March, 1942 issue of The Chronicles of Oklahoma..."These tombstones are of solid marble and stand upright some twelve or fifteen feet in height. There are some twelve or fifteen graves in the old Garland cemetery which is enclosed by a wrought iron fence. The cemetery site has been deeded to the State for the use and benefit of the Oklahoma Historical Society." Also in this article is a photograph showing the headstones from the outside of the cemetary. This issue is posted online for anyone wishing to read more or see the b&w photo.
