Terry Johnson took me to this cemetery.  We went up Hwy 76 south to the road that intersects the Hwy just at the Pernell school and turned right/west.  We went straight and where the paved road curved back south we took the dirt road straight instead of taking the curve.  We drove straight on to a red gate, then straight on to a wire gate, and just inside that second gate we turned south and drove for about 1/4 mile, stopped and crawled under a fence and walked about 150 yards into the pasture.  The cemetery was located in a thicket of trees.  It is not being taken care of.  It has no fence or sign.  Terry said the Robberson Townsite was located right by the cemetery but there is no sign of it now.  He indicated that the gates are locked as the cemetery is on leased land where cattle are kept.  There may well be more graves here than listed but not that you could readily see.

Nancy Dicus-Beck says her sister went by Robberson Cemetery last year and also spoke to one of the local
residents there, she said she remembered her father speaking of the Dicus family who lived there, she was 80 or 90 years old. She also suggested my sister check the Dirty Socks Cemetery and another old one which is also near by, the next time she is in the area..The elderly lady told my sister that there was a woman in the area who was stealing the headstones and
selling them at flea markets, she had watched her taking the stones many times.We do not know if there is a headstone on James Dicus grave or if other family is buried there, but there is possibly a young son Eugene and a wife Martha (Hill) Dicus buried there also. My only information is that James was buried in Robberson, Indian Territory.

If you know of anyone who might have purchased a tombstone and currently have it in their possession or know where it is, the Dicus family and others would like very much to get that information. Please email Nancy A. Dicus-Beck above or Brenda Choate with any information you may.   We very much would like to track these stones down.  It is unthinkable that someone would take stones that family placed on a loved ones resting place, for any reason, much less to sell for a few dollars.
