Duncan, Mrs., mother of Bill Duncan, founder of Duncan, Oklahoma
 died on a visit here from Scotland ca 1893/94 and is buried in
 this cemetery along with two daughters of Bill Duncan
There are many graves for which no listing could presently be found,
some stones were complete illegible, some children with only first names given.
A re-canvas project is anticipated by the Masonic Lodge after restoration is completed and
we will bring you any additions or changes to this list at that time.
