Cox Cemetery is a small country cemetery a short distance from Bryan Rd. on Sandstone and off to the north about 150 yards on a farmer's entrance road. There are the remains of a trailer house and the graveyard begins just behind that concrete slab.

Hi my name is Y. Thornton and I found some info on this cemetery back in 1992 when I went to the Grandfield Library in Tillman County, Oklahoma.
The information came from a book Bryan County, Oklahoma Cemeteries Volume 1 Pages 103 - 107 I have two sets of directions that I will send.
Cox Chapel Cemetery - this cemetery is located in Section 6, Township 6, Range 9 in northwest Bryan County or about two miles south of the Cobb Community
From Durant, go north on Washington Avenue until the road turns West (about 1 1/2 miles) go west one mile, turn north at Folsom Baptist Church. Go north one mile, turn right or east, go one-half mile. The cemetery is located behind a large two story home. You have to go thru their yard into the pasture.
This is a large cemetery, one of the oldest we found in this section of Bryan County. Over half the area are graves marked with sandstones, with no names or dates but was a well planed cemetery as the stones were stright rows and lots as the newer part with tombstones. This cemetery is on private properity and hasn't been maintained thru the years and is not fence. It is over grown with brush and trees. In very bad shape. There are several Indian tombs but without names. Some families have fenced their lots. From Helen Renegar, Wanda Shelton, Bub and Lucilla Brimage survey this cemetery.
My uncles that were listed in this cemetery are Arthur Dilbeck Oct 23, 1903 - April 3, 1923, died in a car accident and his brother was listed he died as an infant Floyed Dilbeck. The parents to these children were William Will Dilbeck and Lauranni Self. The other family member listed in this cemetery are Herbert Herman Arnott and his son Herbert Herman Arnott Jr. You have them listed and their family was from Prescott, Arkansas in Nevada County. Herbert Herman Arnott Sr. parents were Alexander "Alex" Arnott and Jessi Black Rodger Arnott and they are buried in Nevada County, Arkansas.
2nd direction - Gene Phillips 21 Apr 2003
