The following used with permission, Cherokee Strip Volunteer League, "Alfalfa County Oklahoma Cemeteries": This cemetery is sometimes referred to as the Livingston Cemetery. The first family living on this land was named Flanagan. With the help of their neighbors, a sod house was built. That night there was a rain and wind storm. The following day when neighbors came to check on them they found that the ridge pole had collapsed under the weight of the sod and the couple with their child had suffocated. Thus the starting of the cemetery. This story was related by Ralph Solf and Anna Wallenstein Nannah. Anna wrote of her father and a friend finding the family that morning.
If you have additional information about Cooprider Cemetery, aka Solf Cemetery, please contact area coordinator.
