LEGEND:

WPA indicates the cemetery surveys performed between 1937 and 1940 and include many markers that are not readable during recent observations. Those not so designated were surveyed in recent years and continue to be listed in the USGenWeb Tombstone Project and the USGenWeb Archives.

** Indicates African-American cemeteries.

NOTES:

Cleveland County has a great many cemeteries, including a great many being private burial plots consisting of one or two graves to as many as several hundred. In the case of some church cemeteries, the church no longer exists. Some large municipal and private cemeteries have graves that number in the thousands.

Over the years, many old burial grounds have fallen into an unkept condition or outright abandonment. To say that these are threatened is an understatement. In many cases, the WPA surveys were the last accounts made of these cemeteries

This listing of cemeteries has been an attempt to consolidate the surveys taken by the WPA during the period of 1938-1940 together with the cemeteries that have been gratefully contributed to the Cleveland County Archives by many thoughtful folks, not the least of these being Mr. W.D. "Bill" Floyd. A search engine has been provided to serve as an improved method of locating names and key words.

What may appear as duplicate entries are actually surveys that represent a snapshot in time. The earlier (WPA) surveys, when compared with the later surveys (1997-2003), will demonstrate the deterioration and loss of stones that no longer appear on the later listings. For this reason, later generations can appreciate the efforts done to provide information that might have been forever lost. In addition to the verbatim transcription of the WPA records, Ann Propst, transcriber, has added notes of correction and observation, available no where else. The entire WPA listing of cemeteries and related historical information is still available on CD. Please vist the Cleveland County WPA page.

In addition to the recorded burials made by WPA workers, there is an amazing amount of history provided by contemporary Cleveland Historians. The user is encouraged to browse these historic sites for information that would otherwise never be available in a cemetery survey.
