aka Old Indian Cemetery
Atoka County, Oklahoma
Information furnished by: Bennie L. Loftin Jan 2001
"Located in Sect 1, T1N, R13E
About 1/4 mile west & a little north of Olen Patterson's old home. I was known as an old Indian Cemetery. One broken granite stone found is the only tombstone that anyone remembers, but they did remember that there were several rock walled gravestones at one time. Field work Mar 6, 1993 by Clarence Hoehman, Junior Patterson, Johnny Cudd & Bennie Loftin.
By act of the Choctaw General Council, John Pendergraf Rogers was granted the
privilege of operating a toll bridge just east of present Wesley, across
Nolitubbe Creek, a branch of McGee Creek. A post office was established at this
point, called Rogers Station, on July 1, 1874, with Burton Doyle as postmaster."
