Fairlawn Cemetery

I spoke of Fairlawn in a post about George Kessler. I have dabbled in some of my genealogy, and walked through a fair amount of cemeteries. The cemeteries in the area are generally laid out in grid form, a simple gate, a few large monument type stones and family tombs.

I found Fairlawn to be a beautiful cemetery. The entrance is lined with similar family tombs of famous names like Overholser. A WWI obelisk memorial marks the end of the first oval. It is offset, but fits well in the standing family tombs.

It is an Oklahoman treasure--check it out.
