Durant Cemetery
Creek County, Oklahoma

© by: Bobbi Dunn

Location: Edge of Bristow City limits off Rt. 66 Directions: turn south off of 66 going west toward Depew onto Industrial Road. Cross the railroad tracks and immediately take a right next to a white pipe fence on a dirt road. The cemetery is approximately 50 yards down that road.
At this time no records are known to exist other than this list. Caretakers are: James King 918-367-6918 and Milfay Hawkins 918-367-6672.
This is not a complete canvas. I walked the cemetery, and took pictures and recorded all readable headstones December of 2004. There are at least 100 more burials that could not be identified by walking the cemetery.
If you have family buried in the Durant Cemetery or can take a gate photo or have obits (with newspapers permission or an obit that you can write) or tombstone photos or individual portraits or can write a short bio or have a history of the cemetery and would like to add your information to this website, contact the area coordinator for more information. You can also check out our How to Submit page.
NOTICE. If you submit information to this website and change your e-mail address please notify the area coordinator with the county/cemetery and new e-mail address so we can keep our pages as up to date as possible.
Note: Every effort has been made to transcribe this information accurately. These records MAY CONTAIN ERRORS. Any corrections and/or additions greatly appreciated. As with any genealogy information, this is a source and should be considered as such. It is up to the researcher to verify the accuracy.
