is the one on the NW corner of Humphrey Lake.
(The one that you say below is #2)
I do have corrections. "Doneta, daughter of Conrad and Effie Short, b March 10, 1904 and d June 19 1904." Her name was DONITA, and his name was CONARD.
People write what they see on the Tombstone and then get home and figure
One of the markers that couldn't be read was Jerry Conard Short (again,
1. Joe L. Short (b 29 Aug 1919 d 3 Apr 1996) and Rachelle Francias
2. Joan Sue Short McComas (b 6 Jan 1923 d 1 Oct 1996) were scattered on 4 Oct 1996
3. Marilynn Verdaire Short Steele Burke (b 28 May 1928 d 1997 d 1997) were scattered in 1997
4. Trent McComas (b abt 1943 d 1997) were scattered in 1997
This cemetery is owned by the family of Taylor and Kate Bourland Percival.
The fence was put up by the Short family.
The family has now put up a large marker that has the names of those that had no markers.
The land was part of the original allotment "given" to Effie Jane Percival Short, Chickasaw Indian, after the Dawes Rolls were done.
I am the daughter of Joe and Rachelle Short, grand daughter of John
I can remember when my Grandmother, Effie Jane, refused to let the powers that be, remove the graves when the lake was built.
