Cherokee Catholic Cemetery

Alfalfa County, Oklahoma

The following used with permission, Cherokee Strip Volunteer League, "Alfalfa County Oklahoma Cemeteries": The Cherokee Catholic Cemetery is located in Section 12 Township 26N Range 11W. When W. S. Howard gave one acre of land for the Cherokee Municipal Cemetery Mr. Robert Barry, being of the Roman Catholic Faith, gave one acre of his farm to St. Cornelious Catholic Church for cemetery purposes. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Ford had lost a baby earlier and this child was moved to the new Catholic Cemetery at the same time the Howard baby was moved to the Cherokee Cemetery. Mr. Howard owned the Southwest quarter while Mr. Barry owned the Southeast quarter of the section so the two cemeteries are side by side. The Catholic being just east of the Cherokee Cemetery.
Cherokee Catholic Cemetery is now (2012) merged with Cherokee Municipal Cemetery..
