Buckhorn Cemetery is located 2 and a half miles south of Sulphur, OK on the west side of Highway 177.

This cemetery has 4' white metal pipes that mark many graves. There are also many graves marked with large native stones with no inscriptions. A local rancher has brush hoged around the open areas but there is no maintainance other than that. General condition of cemetery is 'fair'. There are 58 resting souls, 30 marked and known, 28 marked but unknown.

After the cemetery received a good cleaning out I was able to walk and read it once again, finding more names plus some corrections in 2008.

I walked and read this cemetery in the spring of 2000, updated May 28, 2008.

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.
