The distance depends on the way you go from Nocona to Oklahoma in those days--take a train or a wagon crossing a ferry? crossing at a shallow water crossing on Red River?

There was one man living near Oklahoma City whose family took him to a cemetery near Saint Jo, Montague Co., Texas for burial about 1906--took trains then went overland from the train depot a few miles. Another family took a family member by wagon to a cemetery north closer to Red River--not too far from the Terral area.
