From Eldorado, OK take Highway 6 West approximately 4 miles. The grave is fenced and on the south side of the road.

According to information I found pub. by the "Daily Oklahoman, 1972," in the Altus Library history section, the Vale family was living on rented land when the child was stillborn following the mother's bout with measles. Having no money, the father followed the suggestion of Mr. William L. Lane, area section foreman for the Frisco Railroad, and buried the child on railroad land so it would not be lost in the fields on the rented farm.

Since it is on railroad right of way, the railroad, as well as school kids and other organizations, take care of it. It is covered with toys and red ribbons right now since Christmas is near.

I surveyed and transcribed this cemetery in December of 2003.

Vale, Infant, d. 1906, stillborn, d/o M&M Vale

Note: This grave was the sign post my family used to turn off to my grandparents' farm in Jackson County, Oklahoma, near Eldorado, Oklahoma. As noted, the grave was always immaculately manicured.

Jo Jan Nunley (at turn off to Thomas L. and Euna Denton's farm house. The house has since been torn down after their deaths.)
