Ballew Cemetery Contributed by: Brenda Ballew Griffin   7/06/2002
This cemetery was located in the SW1/4 NE1/4 of Sec 10, T14N, R22E, it was fenced and well-kept. Initially, the cemetery was used as
the burial ground for the Ballew family, but gradually members of the community started using it also. In or around 1948 Tenkiller Lake was being
built. The location of the cemetery is now  under water.  Reinternment was to be made in a cemetery approximately 1.7 direct miles north-northeast of Old Cookson,  Oklahoma, in the southeast corner of Sec 2, T14N,R23E. 
Which is known as the Cookson-Proctor Cemetery today.

The Hulbert Cemetery is the same as the Odd Fellows Cemetery. To get there from Tahlequah, you would go east on Hwy 51 straight through Hulbert about one mile.

(See below) Turn left onto the road. The cemetery is a short distance on the right.
(Submitted by Terrill White 4/6/2004)
(More on Hulbert Cemetery from Pioneer Papers)
Some added information by:Jaqueline (Jackie) Spears

"The memorial at the fork in the road off of Hwy. is a memorial to Viet Nam Veterans.  I only point this out because a young man I knew growing up named Flud died in Viet Nam and I think his grandfather who was close to my family was instrumental in getting the memorial erected."

JJ CEMETERY is located approximately one mile North on Sunset Valley Road west of Hulbert.  It is very easy to miss as it is so grown up.  Terrill White took pictures of all of the graves that he could see but was almost positive that there are MANY, MANY more graves in this cemetery because he kept stumbling in deep impressions and there were many field stones in the cemetery.  Many of the headstones were homemade and the newest grave was from 2004.

Ross Cemeteries, Contributed by: Terrill White 1/29/2003
F.Y.I. There are 2 Ross Cemeteries in Cherokee County.
One is located on Bliss Avenue across from the W.W. Hastings Hospital. The second and probably most sought after is in Park Hill, OK. Ross Cemetery that is located on Bliss Avenue is a predominantly black cemetery. These Ross' are related to Stick Ross which was a freedman (freed slave). When Stick was freed he was allotted land just Southwest of Tahlequah on what is now known as Stick Ross Mountain.

FORGOTTEN BURYING GROUND (From Pioneer Papers)
In the extreme southern section of the Park Hill locality, Oklahoma, not far distant from the Illinois River, there is on the bench of a high wooded hill an early day and forgotten place of burial.

A Forgotten and unknown Burial Ground (Source: Jerri Barton )

To get to the site:  From Hwy 62 and 82 south of Tahlequah, go 100 ft south.  Take Murrell Home Road 3 1/2 miles.  Turn south at 410 Rd (posted as King Road) for 1 1/3 miles, going to the left when the road forks.  You will find yourself at the cattleguard of Sundown Ranch.  Follow this road until it again forks,, do NOT go towards the large house to the west, but cross the cattle guard straight ahead and follow a "pasture road" that is well used by the owners of the 13 "river-front" properties.  From the first cattle guard, it is a little over 1/2 mile down this road to where the gravesite is.  To the south of that road and 100' up the pasture, you will see 2 walnut trees growing close together.  This burial site is right beneath those trees but other in the winter time, you can see no stones at all.  And even in the winter you have to almost be on top of them to see them.  To us, it looks like there are probably 3-4 grave there (based on indentations in the earth) but if the "vandalism" is true, that might not be the case.  There is the "large massive" stone of Elizabeth Delano that is there and another standing stone that states "E  D". which might be a footstone.
20 years ago you could see the flying dove and the willow tree, but could not read the stone since it was broken, but you can't read the stone at all anymore  (This stone was vandalized and previous owner's decedents report knowing of people trying to rob this grave.  Plus, it is not fenced and cattle do run it). 

Another Unknown Burial Area on Stick Ross Mountain
There is no name for the one on Stick Ross Mountain --off Mud Valley Road turn south onto Stick Ross--go to top of hill--on right side is a rock house (old Garner place) across the road on the left side proceed about three to five hundred feet is an area overgrown.  A person will have to get permission to search this area. This cemetery, which is not very large, about 10 graves, was among the trees, it had a small wall surrounding the graves only about 12 to 16 inches high. Linda Peck
