Myers Family Cemetery
Arbuckle, Murray County, Oklahoma
This cemetery is located about 400 yards south of the old Ft. Arbuckle site in western Murray County. It is on private property. The cemetery is on the Lazy "S" Ranch and you MUST get the owners permission to drive on the property. The owner told me that you may walk in from the highway without asking permission.

I went to the cemetery in June of 2001 and took pictures with descendents of the Myers family who are interred here.
The Chickasaw Nation in a summer youth employment program has began cleaning up the old abandoned cemeteries in the Chickasaw Nation if there are members of the Chickasaw tribe buried there.
This small cemetery was badly overgrown. A family member had built a fence around the cemetery previously. The badly overgrown Myers cemetery was cleaned up this summer by this program.
The following list of those interred in Myers Family Cemetery is listed below. Sorry that there are no dates but the list of names is said to be inclusive. There are 9 resting souls that are known.
