Contributed by Charlotte Keen, Nov 25, 2001 [jkeen14660@aol.com]. Total records = 42.

The cemetery is on the north-west corner of the shopping center, in front of Atwoods, farm & home store. It is well maintained and has a white wrought iron fence around it.

There is a plaque on a large sand stone in the center of the cemetery: Old Indian Cemetery. Marked by the Tulsa Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution.

This cemetery has been restored thru the efforts of John Franklin Turner, Eagle Scout 1986. It was first established in 1883.

Buried in this historic cemetery in the Confederate Creek Indian Veteran, Lt Thomas Adams, who founded the settlement of "Oktain Eukiwa" (Sand Springs) shortly following the Civil War.

Persons sharing a common plaque have an asterisk (*) following their name. Their burial dates are from 1888 to 1912. May they rest in Peace.

I walked and recorded the cemetery on Sep 15, 2002.
