Infant Girl Vale
Stillborn 1906

Ms. O'Bannon surveyed this cemetery in December 2003.
This grave can be found at the intersection of Hwy 6, south of Eldorado, and County Roads N1830 and E1770. It lies in the SE quadrant of the intersection between the highway and the railroad tracks.

"According to information I found pub. by the "Daily Oklahoman, 1972," in the Altus Library history section, the Vale family was living on rented land when the child was stillborn following the mother's bout with measles. Having no money, the father followed the suggestion of Mr. William L. Lane, area section foreman for the Frisco Railroad, and buried the child on railroad land so it would not be lost in the fields on the rented farm. Since it is on railroad right of way, the railroad, as well as school kids and other organizations, take care of it." - Patti O'Bannon
