This is a photo of Betty hard at work in Foster Cemetery
It was taken by Diane Gann
Betty is acting President of the Garvin County Cemetery Association.  She is currently involved
in mapping and canvassing our Garvin County cemeteries.   With the Garvin County Cemetery Association she hopes to recruit members and raise funds and get volunteers to help take care of our neglected pioneer cemeteries.

Please consider helping Betty in this worthy endeavor, by joining the Garvin County Cemetery Association or contributing money, time, or fund raising ideas.  Please send donations to Rt. 2, Box 75-A,  Pauls Valley, OK  73075.  An account has been opened at the Pauls Valley National Bank.  You can reach Betty via email at

 Anyone with relatives buried in Garvin County's small Pioneer cemeteries should be aware that there are currently no laws to protect these cemeteries from destruction by the landowner.   
If you are concerned about this and the welfare of these cemeteries, please write, email or call District 22 or District 42.
Please ask them to push forward laws to protect our cemeteries.  Oklahoma has already lost many to destruction by landowners.  Let's not loose anymore..
