These two cemeteries are only a few miles apart, both in the Cimarron River Valley. Most of the graves have been removed from the Roberts cemetery with only three remaining. There are no headstones standing. It is reported the earliest date is 1915. There is no physical evidence remaining of this cemetery. It is said, there were some twenty graves here. A pipe fence around a headstone marks the Whitaker cemetery. It was also a family graveyard with only three burials as reported by a family member. In later years the Knowles cemetery was used. This plot is in the center of a pasture with no road near.
