***UPSIDE DOWN OR SIDE PHOTOS***
First no I did not post any photos upside down or on their sides on purpose. I usually use a Ipad to post my photos. There is a issue sometimes with Ipad and how the photos are taken. So when a pic is posted online it posts wrong BUT on my side the photos looks correct.
I did not realize this until recently but many of these photos have already been posted.
The photos I take now and post I no longer have this issue.
Being as most of the pics were not requested ones but ones I just took I have no list of who might have photos like these.
I split my time taking photos between Sunnylane Cemetery in Del City, Ok and Summit View in Guthrie, Ok. So you may find photos at either cemetery.
I will gladly correct or remove any photo that is not correctly posted.
Thanks for understanding.

|Pat Sproat||John Milligan|
Would you please add this to his obit.
Oklahoma City Mar 13 1895
John Milligan a man of color, was executed
at 12:02 PM today for the murder of Gabe and
Hannah Clark of Tennessee.
The hanging took place and was the most successful job ever performed in the west.
Milligan was game and nervy to the end, and
met his doom like a Trojan. The condemned man
shot thru the trap like a rocket and his neck
was broken. The hanging was the 1st legal one
in the territory. Long before noon hour a crowd of people surrounded the stockade. The hanging was witnessed by 30 people including Marshals,
sheriffs, and spiritual advisers, newspaper men,
and 12 juors. The day a typical day wet, muggy,
and just a nasty day.
Milligan's last hours expressed himself ready
to go and remarked "I will be setting on the
throne with God in two hours" his dress was
without flaw and remarked "wish his sister could
see him now".
With his arms roped together the condemned man
walked his way to be hanged.
Attired in a new suit of clothes and shoes, he walked with firm steps and bore up bravely.
Sheriff DeFord appeared at the front of the gallow's.
and said " John Milligan you are about to be hanged by the neck til you are dead. Do you have
anything to be said. Milligan replied "No Sir"
but I would like a song, a choir was formed
and the song "When the roll is called up yonder"
was sung. His last words were bye Mrs. Call.
Milligan shot thru the trap like a bag of lead his neck broken. His heart throbbed for 12 minutes, and then taken down and placed in a
cherry wood coffin.
Before the hanging upon leaving his cell he
made a complete confession of killing the
Clarks, and also a man for money in Tennessee.
Milligan was 5foot 8 inches and 187 lbs and
21 years of age.
Milligan had come with the Clarks from Tennessee
to the territory, and they had told him to
move on he could not live with them any longer,
thus making him angery causing him to kill them.
Clarks grandchild was living with them and
survived the slayings, and testified of
Milligan's killing her grandparents.

Thank you for taking a photo of my great-great aunt's grave! I appreciate it!
You didn't happen to notice an Olive Gray (73153319) anywhere nearby, did you? She had a daughter that also died in Oklahoma City. I found a memorial here for her that said Burial Unknown and the obituary also does not specify. Her son is buried in New York along with her husband, but I assumed since her daughter died in Oklahoma she was probably buried with or near her.
