Clinton Oaks Cemetery is located on West 43rd St between S 24th West Ave & Zenith.
The road thru the cemetery is one way. You turn off of S 24th W Ave to the East. It is a narrow drive. The cemetery sign is on the South of the drive. Most of the rows are not straight. A lady told me, the family just buried a person where they wanted to, that is why the rows are crooked.
It is well maintained with fences but no gates. Thers is a lot of stones that are broken and unreadable. It is in the middle of a housing addition.
The cemetery was owned and operated by a woman from 1893 to 1945. The City of Tulsa owns it now. At least they maintain the cemetery.
The Oldest marked grave is: Stella Harrell, 1916, d. 1917. The Oldest person to be buried according to County Records: Edgar Martin, d. no date, age 111yr.
I also used the County Records. The names with an R came from their records. Some of the information, I do not understand.
I walked and transcribed the cemetery in Nov and Dec 2002.- Charlotte Keen
