Denton/Denten Cemetery

Also known as: Holsonbake Cemetery

Cleveland Co., OK

Located: Southeast of Corbett and is in very poor repair, the owner of the property, Mr. & Mrs. Holasek, reported that some years ago the cemetery was vandalized and a large amount of the head stones were removed and several were damaged. There are a great number of headstones broken beyond repair and moved throughout the cemetery.   Submitted by: Linda Bonham Hamner lindacb@flash.net June 1999

Across the dirt road from this location is a solitary grave in the front yard of a new model house:
