Yes, I found it a couple of years ago. It was some time ago that I posted that, in 02. Shortly afterward I located Midland. I was looking for the cemetery where my great, great grandfather was buried. I got all of my relatives that I could get together and we made a trip there to see his grave. Unfortunately it is on private property and has not been taken care of. It is not fenced and cattle are allowed to graze through there. There are only a few stones left standing. The rest have been knocked over and broken. Something has been digging there and bones are lying around on top of the ground. At first We couldn't find it and ran into a friendly neighbor that took us onto the land and showed us the cemetery. The neighbor told us that the land owner had dug up part of the cemetery and used it as land fill on another part of his property. We were heart sick. According to my great great grandfather's Civil war records he was buried there in 1901 in the Moss Cemetery at Midland, OK. I surely wish that the owner of the land would honor the dead that were buried on his land by at least fencing it off and not letting his cattle graze there and tromp down the stones. But if it is true that he dug parts of it up and used it as land fill, then he doesn't care a thing about honoring the dead.
Thank you for taking the time to write me with the information anyway. It is nice of you to want to be so helpful.
