We went to Boiling Springs. This place is about eight miles northwest of Wilburton. This burial place is in the top of a good sized mountain. There are no head markers. Mr. MICKLE tells me that they did not put any head markers to the Indian graves those days. The only thing they did was to build a small log or native rock house over these graves. You cannot find these graves now unless some of the ruins of the little buildings are left. 

You can count the noticeable ones but you are not able to tell if the number you count is all the graves or not. There is still an Indian church house near this burial place and the Indians who are left in this section of the county still hold their church services there.
