Welcome to Old Jackson Cemetery
"Old Scott Cemetery"

The Old Jackson ("Old Scott Cemetery") as some call it, is about 2 miles East , 1 mile North and 3/4 mile West of Velma, Oklahoma in Stephens County. This area was called "Old Pickens County, Indian Territory" or Lands. There are about 60 graves in this cemetery and the last marked grave date is 1927. 28 of these graves have or had Concrete clabs about 3 ft. by 6 fr. and were fence at one time. All stones were broken but one in 1927 and one stone missing base is there. Three of us worked all day and repaired all of the stones we could repair. Some needed 2 or 3 steps so did not finish. One huge stone we could not move as it was too big. Cattle and horses have broken the stones. I know who some are but have no idea of who the others are and appears that there is no way of getting the owner of the land to do anything as we offered to help pay for a fence.
