From Sperry, Oklahoma go west on Main Street to the stop sign, by the school. Turn north, right, and follow the road and curve to the west. Go past the Ferrier College to the first intersection & turn north, right. It is about 1½ miles to the cemetery.

This cemetery is on private property. There is a short drive you can pull into just north of the fence, then walk back to the cemetery. There is a gate wired shut you can get through.

This Osage Indian Cemetery started in 1877 with the burial of Augustus Captain. There are 2 flags flying, the US Flag & the Osage Nation Flag.

On a sign by the south gate, "As you are I was. As I am you will be" with an "End of the Trail" horse & rider.

The cemetery is small and may not have room for more burials. It is fenced and well cared for.

I walked the cemetery in June 2002.

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.
