Please note that the author just found out from my husband's family members who have been to the cemetery many times that Coal Creek (Furr) Cemetery is also known as Creek Mine Cemetery. There is a separate listing in Find a Grave for Creek Mine Cemetery with many of the same people listed as might be expected. It is located between Sections 14 and 23,T11N, R12E of Okmulgee County, OK.
