EXCERPTS from the Skiatook Journal newspaper article written by Randy Cowling on March 29, 2007:

"There were 17 (headstones) turned over," according to Avant Police Chief Bill Tarwarter. "We went out there, that's the only thing I know."

and

"The cemetery is fenced but not maintained. The oldest marked graves are Dec. 23, 1910. Two persons were buried on the same day. Avant, population 372, is located north of Skiatook in Osage County."
