Cole Cemetery is five miles east of Pryor, Okla. on highway 20 and one mile north on E-W 46, (Cole-Strang Rd). There is a brown house that sets off the road about 65 yards on the left. The road leads to this house and also straight to the cemetery.
There is a gate that is kept locked, to the cemetery. Since this is a private cemetery, permission should be obtained from the land owner to visit.
The cemetery is set back from the gate about a quarter of a mile. It is protected by a barbed wire fence with a cattle gate and is in fair condition. There are no signs at the entrance.
I documented this cemetery from the photos taken when I visited the cemetery on Dec 08, 2004. This transcription contains all existing and legible stones or markers at this time.
