My baby sisters are NOT listed in the Rubottom Cemetery, Love Co., OK books or websites but they are buried there.
I would like to set the record straight so that they will not be lost to future researchers. My sisters are buried side by side with matching headstones. I have visited their graves all my life and have retraced their names on their stones with permanent markers several times but it soon fades away. You have to do a rubbing to read their names. They do not appear in Ralph Evans’ copy of the cemetery nor on the Oklahoma website listing those who are buried in the Love County cemeteries.
