This cemetery is located on private property. The lady that owns it has leased it to a person who is running cows over the graves. I've spoken to the Choctaw Nation about this cemetery since there are several Choctaw burial houses that are in danger of being destroyed, but they haven't been any help. I've written Chief Pyle twice, called several times, emailed, and visited the nation and spoke with Terry who is in charge of cemetery clean up. Marion Downs owns land that joins the cemetery on the west side and she has offered to donate enough land to build an area where those who come to visit can have a nice place to set and rest. You can not go in there until it freezes due to the ticks. It covers about 5 acres and is in need of help in the most urgent way. If something is not done these graves are going to be destroyed. If someone has an idea of what can be done please contact me. I don't live there but I'm willing to do what ever I can to get this cemetery fenced and cleaned up. I have family buried there and it breaks my heart to see the sad shape this place has become. Danna Mullens Reese
