Another lone grave is located in section 26, on what at one time was the Cement Company Picnic Grounds. This grave has no marker at all, but the sunken place can still be seen just south of a low water bridge over Coon Creek. This land was allotted to Robert Whiteturkey so it is supposed that this was a relative of the Whiteturkeys.
Lone Burials on Coon Creek. Page 81
In section 26, east of Dewey on the allotment of Robert Whiteturkey and south of an old low water bridge near the old picnic and swimming park of the Dewey Cement Plant is one lone grave. It is a possibility that this is a member of the Whiteturkey family. I could be TC AN TOOX QUA b. 1853, the oldest daughter of Widow Whiteturkey as she appears to have come to this area with the family in 1867, but died soon after the removal.
NOTE: The material for this book was gathered prior to 1974, the book published in 1983 and then in 1996 a revised and updated edition was published.
