This cemetery is located on SE 104th Street, west of Anderson Rd, on the north side. From I-40 or I-240, go east from the city. Take the Anderson Rd exit. Go south on Anderson Rd to SE 104th {stop sign}. Go west {right} on SE 104th about 1/2 mile.

This cemetery was created from land that was part of Charles Ford's original land run homestead. It has been owned by the Kear family for the last 100 years. It is a closed community cemetery, allowing burials only of relatives of people already buried there.This is in the community of Schwartz {part of far SE Oklahoma City} and used to be known as Union Grove community.

There are several graves marked only with rocks. A number of these are World War I soldiers that were killed in battle.
