Egypt Cemetery, Pontotoc County, Oklahoma

This cemetery, located near Ada Oklahoma, is a rather old burial ground that has been forgotten in many ways. It is not always the easiest to find, and sadly is in need of a great deal of repairs. Because, I have several people who are dear to me buried there, but no longer live in the area, I have been searching in vain for the name of the person who has taken on the huge task of its upkeep.

Finally, I had the opportunity to speak with this incredible gentleman, who, at the age of 76, is doing his best to keep the grass cut and whatever else he can do. He does this mostly as a labor of love because he too has family buried there. He let me know that there is an account set up at a local bank in Ada for the cemetery but few families are left to help.

If there is anyone else out there, like me, who has family buried in this cemetery and would like this gentlemans name and address, I would be happy to give it to you.

Maybe we could even organize a "clean up day" to take care of some major problems (like the broken fence). My email address is lisa_renea@yahoo.com

Thank you!
Lisa





Thanks,
