Ross Cemeteries, Cherokee Co. Oklahoma

F.Y.I.

There are 2 Ross Cemeteries in Cherokee County. One is located on Bliss Avenue across from the W.W. Hastings Hospital. The second and probably most sought after is in Park Hill, OK. It is one mile East and then one half mile south of the Murrell Home. This cemetery holds the remains of many prominent Cherokee including Chief John Ross. The cemetery is fairly well maintained as it is still in use and has been added to the National Registry of Historic Places.

Ross Cemetery that is located on Bliss Avenue is a predominantly black cemetery. These Ross' are related to Stick Ross which was a freedman (freed slave). When Stick was freed he was allotted land just Southwest of Tahlequah on what is now known as Stick Ross Mountain.
