Fairfield Mission.
"Established among the western Cherokees by Dr. Marcus Palmer in 1829 under the auspices of Boston based American board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions.
First located in Pope County, Arkansas Territory, and known as Mulberry Mission.
Other missionaries serving at Fairfield included Dr. Elizur Butler, Rev. Charles C. Torrey, and teachers, Clarissa Palmer, Lucy Butler, Addie Torrey, and Esther Smith.
A circulation library of 150 volumes was established there in 1832 and was likely the first such library in Oklahoma."
The mission, discontinued in 1859, was located on Sallisaw Creek about 8 miles SW of Stilwell.
The mission cemetery is now known as the McLemore Cemetery.
Oklahoma Historical Society, 63-1995.

This cemetery is in use today. It is well maintained and fenced. Some of the old stones are broken and could be restored.

There was a survey in 1979 and some of the oldest stones were not listed. They state it was fenced, some graves maintained, which leaves me to believe it was overgrown with weeds at the time of the 1979 survey, and has been restored to present condition since that survey.

If you know who is buried with the field rock markers, please let the county administrator know.There are a couple of places with the sunken appearance of an old grave but no stone.

If you have family buried here and would like to have their information or additional information (Obituaries, Photos, Short Bio, Cemetery Photos) placed on our site please contact the Area Coordinator for details or visit our How to Submit page.

We are dedicated and strive for our records to be complete and accurate. As with all Genealogy work there comes a possibility for spelling or data errors with the information that we have received. Please let us know if you have found any such error.
