Cole Family Cemetery

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.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
