Please, anyone who may be able to lookup, a burial for James Alexander COCKE, d.July 1926....James R.GOODE, d. aft 1930....bef 1938....Annie Pearl GOODE, d. 03 FEB 1938.
Martha Jefferson COCKE....d. aft 1930. I believe all were buried at the Forest Hill Cemetery. Annie's obit was in McCurtain Gazette newpaper, which stated her service was held at Chappell Funeral Home, Interment in Forest Hill Cemetery. I went to and walked the cemetery, summer of 2004. There were no stones with the names of COCKE or GOODE on them....there were many broken stones....and the
grounds were grown high with weeds and aunt hills at most every step taken. There was a Forest Hill Baptist Church just a few feet away from the cemetery, but residents said that the cemetery was community owned, not affilated with the church...Please help if you know how to lookup the date of death, and where buried....Are there any platt or plot records for the cemetery...Who would make the stones for the graves, and what about the funeral home records of burials....??? Any help appreciated....There may be write ups in the newspapers of the other deaths, as was Annie's. Thank you. June Dee
