---Darlington, Canadian County, OK - "A beautiful, tree-shaded spot beside the North Canadian River, where Darlington Agency was established by the government in 1869 to care for the Cheyennes and Arapahoes, then occupying a vast reservation that stretched west and north across present Oklahoma to the Texas border. Brinton Darlington, a Quaker, was appointed the first Indian agent. He was greatly loved by the Indians, and his grave is in a small cemetery at nearby Concho."
