OAKLAWN CEMETERY, Tulsa, Oklahoma

This burial ground has been used for years. Several years before the city of Tulsa took it over, which in 1906,  Dan Patton, a pioneer citizen of Tulsa, and a civil engineer, laid out the grounds for the cemetery.

This cemetery occupies 20 acres of ground and is bounded on the north by 8th street, on the east by Peoria Ave., on the south by 11th Street and on the west by Madison Street, or Midland Valley Railroad right-of-way.

When Tulsa took this cemetery over in 1906, there were 387 graves. A large number of these didn't have markers and do not even today as some of the bodies now buried here were removed from a burial ground on West 2nd Street, Tulsa,a near Frisco Street. This plat or parcel of ground is now occupied by building and Streets. This was Tulsa's first burial ground. This cemetery contains the graves of some of the most prominent of the early settlers, some being Indians. It is well cared for at this time by the city, under the supervision of one of the city commissioners.
