Tidbits: When Lake Texoma was created some 3,000 graves from 47
cemeteries had to be moved (reinterment in 1942) to eleven new
cemeteries. The cemeteries in Marshall County (outside the city
limits) rely upon donations of time and money from those who have
loved ones buried there to keep the cemeteries clean and mowed. Arch(e)ard Cemetery - See Linn

Isom Cemetery11 K-June 1999 - Updated 9-3-1999--Joyce Hayward "On a recent trip to Isom Springs Cemetery, I found the grounds in deplorable condition. Grasses and weeds chest high, a thick mat of dead grass from several years of neglect covers the entire cemetery. Small saplings have been allowed to grow, and unless they are removed will start to damage the stones. For the most part, the markers are in good shape. I didn't detect any vandalism. There is a beautiful gate near the road which shows that at one time someone cared about the area. I didn't see a fence (too busy looking for rattlesnakes). I don't have anyone buried in this cemetery" Glynda Herndon, Durant, OK

Old Woodville Cemetery: NE of Woodville (Driving Directions: from McBride, go North on Texoma Park Road to the Alberta Creek turnoff, then East there to Texoma Hills Road, turn South there to the end, and then to back to the East then you should be at the corner of Sand Bass & Catfish Drive. From this point you go North, maybe 75 yards, and on the East side of the road, look real hard, for a big stone in the woods. - James Goff)
|A stone has inscribed on it "In Memory....Woodville Cemetery". From this "marker" you find your way thru the thicket towards the east and you'll find the grave markers. This cemetery is in a real thick thicket and has many "rocks" for headstones, but we managed to find 2 headstones with the following. I might add, that due to the thickness of the brush, that even the people that live around there probably don't know it's there. This Texoma Hills addition has been developed in the last few years or so. There used to be a black school located, to the west of the cemetery, but it's foundation had obvious been torn away when they developed this area.
|Here's the tombstone inscription on the only 2
headstones at the black cemetery that could be found.
