Looking for someone to take a picture at Fairview Cemetary   627

Query posted by Medina, Koleen on October 03, 2004 for STARR

 

I have just learned that a family member is buried in the Fairview Cemetary. I was wondering if someone was going over that way and could take a picture of the headstone for me. I am in So. California. Thanks Koleen

Look up Headstone at Oklahoma State Hospital in Vinita.   628

Query posted by Medina, Koleen on October 04, 2004 for STARR

 

I found out that when a patient died in this hospital, they buried the unclaimed bodies on their property. We had a Grandfather, who we found out was admitted into that hospital in 1928. We were told that he died in that year, but yet he is on the 1930 census. I was looking for someone who might be willing to check out their cemetary, and look for an Ezekiel Starr, born 18 June 1881.

I have a Robert Barker, whose parents were Lawrence Lonzo Barker, Jr. and Hildreth Haverfeld. His age and date of death would be consistent with the Robert you are researching.

Funeral Home record   631

Query posted by Thompson, Eddene on October 09, 2004

 

Hello, Could you give some info on the name of the person that you are searching for? Were they visiting local relatives in Vinita? Where were they from? Perhaps there would be an obit back home where they were from that would give you some info. Lots of people working on this area, but it might get you some answers if you were to include some identification about the person you are searching info on.
Just trying to be helpful, I am a local-born girl from 1943..

I have a copy of the Bluejacket cemetery listings as done by my mother's cousin, Viola Taylor. On page 22, it lists:

Baby Myrtle E. dau of MAA. & M.E. Gullett 1895-1896

Re: Craig County cemeteries, Gullett surname   642B

Query posted by Thompson, Eddene on October 09, 2004 for GULLETT

 

I forgot to mention: I checked the two volumes of the Vinita city cemetery, Fairview by Wanda Norton and Dorothy Nix, and there are no GULLETTs listed.
=========
Checking book: Cherokee Nation Births and deaths 1884-1901 by Dixie Bogle, I found:
Mr. Gullett, his son Harry; Rich Hill, 9 Sept 1895
Chas. Gullett, Bluejacket, 26 Mar 1890
---------
These are names abstracted from the microfilms of the papers Indian Chieftain and the Daily Chieftain.. I believe that the microfilms are at the Vinita Public Library, genealogy department.

Re: Craig County cemeteries, Gullett surname   642D

Query posted by Thompson, Eddene on October 16, 2004 for , BLUEJACKET, GULLETT

 

Hello, In the past few years, have heard it called an "Indian cemetery", but that is basically because it was started when Oklahoma was "Indian Territory". I have never heard it said that you HAD to be indian to be buried there and indeed my people were NOT indian and they have been there since after statehood. The name "Bluejacket" was derived from the settlement or village there of a family called Bluejacket. I am not an authority on indian study, but from what I have read the original one was a white boy abducted(?) by some of the indians and he was wearing a blue jacket which was traditionally made out of blue linsey woolsey material, therefore the name given him was that of "Bluejacket". He married one of the indian girls and they were part of the group to come to that area of Oklahoma.
I hope that this has helped you. If you are interested in some of the indian webpages, contact me personally and I can send you some links to some pages on that category. I have Cherokee background on some of my other lines, but they were like so many others and did not sign up.
If there is anything else that I could help you with I will try.
Sincerely, Eddene Hightower Thompson

Don't know of any mines around Vinita but there were strip-pits west and north of Vinita. McNab is the oldest company we can think of and that was about World War II time frame.

Hello Fellow Researchers, Would anyone happen to have a Fairview Cemetery listing for Vinta or Vinita, OK? I am looking for any Revel, Revell or Revelle buried there. I would appreciate any help I can get on this. I have not been able to find a cemetery listing on the Internet. Is Craig Co., OK also the same county for Wister, OK cemeteries? I am also looking for Revel(le) folks in cemeteries in that town as well. Could you offer any names of cemeteries in Wister, OK? Thanks very much for your time and consideration.
