Thomas Smith Cemetery (Vampire Cemetery)
Broken Arrow, Wagoner County, Oklahoma

Lat: 36 06' 17"N, Lon: 95 44' 05"W

Contributed by Charlotte Keen, Jan 15, 2003 [jkeen14660@aol.com]. Total records = 117.

Thomas Smith Cemetery is located on 41st St east of 209th E Ave. between Catoosa and Broken Arrow. There is a blue water tower, R.W.D. No. 4 south across the street.

A new housing addition is being built on the west side of the cemetery. The cemetery is supposed to be haunted. I do not know if anyone has seen anything. I personally did not.

The cemetery is not maintained very well. Most of the graves have sunk and need to have more dirt on top. It is fenced with a small sign with 'Thomas Smith Cemetery' on the west side of gate.

Mr. Farley, a retired County Commissioner, said it is mostly African Americans and a few White Americans buried here.

The oldest marked grave is M--Jordan, b. 18 May 1808, d. 28 Oct 1902. A Member of the last Creek Council was A. N. Pegues, b. 1879, d. 1959. There are about 331 people buried here. It appears to be about full. It is still open for public burials.

I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Nov. 16th & Dec. 14th of 2002.
