It is a 1975 book, Cemetery Inscriptions, Kay County, Oklahoma, published by Pioneer Genealogical Society, Ponca City, OK. They canvassed the cemeteries of Kay County, reading the stones. As people often do, sometimes rhe only put birth year and death year on the stone. Sometimes there is a stone for one spouse and not the other, annd sometimes no stone at all. In your case there happened to be stones for your grandparents--not much information on thwem, but there were stones. The city of Newkirk maintains records for the Newkirk Cemetery, And, as I mentioned, the Miller-Stahl Funeral has records for nearly all the funeral homes that operated in the town from about 1906. The Pioneer Genealogical Society has a website, http://www.kaycounty.info/pgs/frtpage.html with considerable information. They have a CD available for purchase of the Newkirk Cemetery (as well as other Kay County cemeteries) with information other than just the stones. Click on "Online Records" and follow it to purchase your copy. You can also contact the Newkirk Library, or the Ponca City Library for help
