Another instrument May 29, 1934 in Book 461, page 86 shows that Valley View Cemetery, a Corporation, deeded an area 325 ft. by 450 ft. containing 3.5 acres more or less to the town of Luther, a Municipal Corporation of Oklahoma County, State of Oklahoma for $1.00 and other good and valuable considerations. Dated May 28, 1934 and signed Valley View, a Corporation by H. L. Hamilton.
A 1963 canvass of the cemetery listed 668 names. A one-burial Houck Family Cemetery once existed in this area. It was moved to Luther Cemetery.
