This cemetery, located in the woods, on what was the property of William C. Smith, hence, I gave it the name of "Old Smith Farm Cemetery" We know that the Smith's lived here from at least 1855 until 1885; when the last known burial took place. The family moved sometime between 1885 and 1900 where they are found on the 1900 Oklahoma, Indian Territory Census., Choctaw Nation.

The area has been owned by paper companies and/or investors for numerous years and it is amazing that at least these three graves are still there. The ground was covered with tangled vines, leaves from years and years, broken limbs and briars. In Feb 2017, Sandy and Jim Parks, after finding the graves, cleaned the area around the markers and placed a fence around them. I had received permission from lumber company a few years prior, but being out of state and not knowing exactly where the graveyard was located, took years to find.

Just by looking at the area, I think there might be more graves; but have no proof of this at this time.
