 Quinlan Cemetery

FORMED: ca 1900....abandoned and used as a field for crops about 1905 
LOCATION: 1/4 MILES NORTH, 1/4 MILE EAST OF QUINLAN, OK. WOODWARD CO, OK MAP: UNKNOWN 
CANVASSED: INFORMATION GIVEN BY MRS. NITA ROBERTSON, MANCHESTER IOWA.

It is remembered that - _ someone remembered as just Mrs. SCOTT had a sister
(name unknown) buried there. Also several infant's that their families were 
passing through the area. It's possible that several other graves were 
there, but there is no one at this time that can remember their names.

The cemetery was believed to have been abandoned for the reason being that 
it was bordered on the East side by the Santa Fe Railroad tracks and the 
peacefulness one relates to the death of a loved one could not be achieved 
by the jar and noise of the passing trains. The land was included by the 
owner to be a part of what would be useable for pasture or crops, so
eventually every mark of the graves have been erased.
