Hinton Cemetery was organized on June 6, 1906. The cemetery started out with five acres and has grown to approximately twenty acres, with the addition of the RAY, LUELLEN and HAZLETT ADDITIONS. The first burial was FRANK LANE, who drowned in the South Canadian River in 1904. As of this date there are over 2900 burials with about 325 of them being veterans.
We can thank MARIE WORNSTAFF and her cousin and his wife TRAVIS and SUZY CACKLER, and their daughter BONNIE CACKLER, for keeping such good records through the last several years. Also the first persons who kept the cemetery records. Two of which I believe may have been O. S. MILLER and HERBERT CALDWELL, as they were the first officers of the cemetery in 1906.
CHARLES JAQUES [pronounced Jakeway] is the secretary for the cemetery. You may contact him for information on burials or on lots at 405-542-6383.
The names and dates were taken from official records. The cemetery was not canvassed, therefore there are precious few birth dates. These records are more complete and more accurate than canvassing, where names would be missed if there was no marker.
