Christner Cemetery
Oklahoma County, Oklahoma


N 1/2, Sec. 3, T14N, R4W, I.M.

Christner Cemetery is located 0.5 miles west of the intersection of N. Meridian Ave.
NW 248th St. {Waterloo Rd.} northwest of Edmond, Oklahoma.

From the Oklahoma City area, take I-40 west. Exit right on to I-44 east at exit 147B. Continue on I-44 approximately 3.5 miles and exit left on to State Highway 74. Continue on State Highway 74 for 7 miles, merge left at the Memorial Rd. {Kirkpatrick Turnpike} exit to continue on State Highway 74 {Portland Ave.}. Continue for 8 miles to NW 248th St. {Waterloo Rd.}. Turn left {west} on NW 248th St. and go 1.5 miles. The cemetery is on the left {south} side of the road.

Joseph M. and Ida B. Christner donated land for a cemetery when their three-year-old son, Moses died December 7, 1890 after being accidently scalded with hot water. The cemetery covers approximately 1.5 acres and with the exception of a few plots is used strictly for a family cemetery. According to early reports a tornado took the lives of a family living near the Christner home and Joseph provided burial spaces for the deceased in the Christner family cemetery. A letter written to one of the descendants mentions several unmarked children's graves. Descendants and their families have formed an association that maintains the cemetery. Only relatives are buried there now.
Joseph M. Christner's family originally came from Switzerland. Joseph was born in Summerset County, Pennsylvania March 10, 1849. He married Ida Belle Pritz {Pritts} September 3, 1882. He was one of Oklahoma's pioneer settlers and homesteaded a claim two miles east of Lockridge. Joseph M. died October 18, 1907 leaving his wife and thirteen children. Ida B. died in 1946. Both are buried in the Christner Cemetery. {Information obtained from OK County Cemetery Index - compiled by OK County HCE Genealogy Group, page 19.}
