Pictures of Redbluff Cemetery
The directions to Red Bluff Cemetery is as follows:

At the intersection of OK highways 74 and 19 in Maysville, go West 6 miles, (there is a sign
indicating Wallville is south) turn South approximately 5.7 miles, then West again 1.7 miles,
(there is a slight right & left turn in the second mile at about the half mile mark) to a locked pipe
gate and cattle guard. The cemetery is not visible from this gate. From here you must walk
about 500 yards SSW following a small gravel interior road. The cemetery will be on your left (East).

This little cemetery is not shown on any Topographic Map that I have seen, but for those interested in
the legal description of the location of the cemetery, my determination is as follows: W1/2,
NE1/4, NW1/4, Section 17 Township 3N, Range 3 W.

This cemetery is only 50 to 75 feet square, has a chain-link fence around it which is capable of
preventing livestock from entering, but is in need of much repair. The posts are pipe (probably oil field pipe)
and seem to be adequate to hold the fence. There is a gate in the center of the North side. Even though it
seemed fairly clean when I visited, there is evidence that it gets badly overgrown during the growing
season. All the tombstone seem to be in good condition. The Robbins stone is the largest one there, but
the top is loose and could easily be knocked off its base. There are several large trees on the outside of
the fence that probably need trimming back some.

In regard to the graves with stone enclosures, at least one seems to be smaller than the others, which
indicates to me that it may have been a child.

Red Bluff Cemetery
Contributed by Diane Robbins
Directions to Red Bluff Cemetery. Near the old community of Wallville.

Turn south on Highway 19 between Maysville and Lindsey. A sign will say to  Wallville. Go approximately 6.5 miles until you reach the end of the  blacktop. Continue past the intersection. You will pass a brick house on the left and cross a wooden bridge. Follow the curve in the road back north. Turn west on the next road. Watch for an old field entrance on the left. When we visited in May 1996 the sign read, (Annadarka Reid "A" No 1-17 C. NE NW Sec 17-3N-3W Garvin County OK). You cannot see the cemetery from the road. It is about 150 yards into the pasture, just over the rise. When you enter the pasture the road will Y, there will be oil equipment to the left and he cemetery to the right. The 75-foot square cemetery was enclosed by fencing.

Robbins, Alderson Info from Ray Lane.
There were un-carved stones
next to Anderson which appeared to
mark a grave

graves on the South side of the cemetery are said to be Indian graves.
According to local legend the Indians buried their dead in the cemetery at night because they did not think the settlers would give permission for them  to be buried there. These graves are outlined in stone but have no markings.
