Bickford Cemetery

AKA Catesby

Ellis County, Oklahoma

Donna Barnes

LOCATION: 15 Miles North of Shattuck and 2 miles West

The first cemetery board meeting was held September 10th, 1908. The land was donated by Mr. Bickford. The oldest recorded burial was of Oscar E. Hoffman in 1905. Reportedly there was an infant buried outside the cemetery late one night. The community members moved the grave inside the graveyard. Apparently it was a child of people traveling through. Exact location of placement is unknown.

A visitor to this cemetery will note an area on the west side of the cemetery near the fence line that appears to have been a family plot marked with red bricks. It has been confirmed that this is not a burial plot, but an old area of foundation for a tool type shed that blew away a few years ago.

In the west fence row, unless they have been removed, there was a yellow marble stone with the letters M.E.H. Further north of this stone is a yellow marble stone with the letters L.M.F. These apparently were corner stones. However, the reasoning of why they are in the fence line no one knows.

Also, these initials have not been matched to any family lot.

This type of stone was often used for headstones.

Mr. Carl O'Hair and Mr. Don Shepherd are the caretakers of the records of this cemetery.

NOTE: Poplar Grove Cemetery in Beaver County (Just on down the road West) was often referred to as Catesby Cemetery.

If you know of someone buried in here who is not listed here, please contact me for inclusion here.

This information was compiled by the Ellis County Historical Society. The Information was derived from: walking the Cemetery, obituaries and other sources. The Seventh Day Adventist Congregation was very helpful in getting the following records. These records are as correct and complete as any record we have. Our deepest gratitude is extended to all.
