There is an oil well platform base adjacent to the cemetery which bears the inscription "Burks Royalty Co, T.J. Stovall Lease, Well # 6". There are nuerous "sinks" giving indication of unmarked graves as well as about eight cedar trees which are also an indication of unknown graves.

Berry family, names "Willie". At footstone at this grave was also found bearing the initials "W.D.".
