Cemeteries in Tuskahoma area - lookup

Recently learned from a 1917 letter that William and Alice Martin "died close together and were buried in a little grave yard call Post Oak." The daughter who wrote the letter and her family lived in the Tuskahoma area (interesting note that letter says Whitesboro).

Previous réponses in Le Flore forums have suggested the Presbyterian Indian Church near the LeFlore Pushmataha counties line as a possibility. Seems this cemetery was referred to as Post Oak at one time or another. All but one of the 12 graves or so there are unmarked. Are there any cemeteries in the Tuskahoma area that were called Post Oak in the past?

I know the county court house burned during the 1930s but if a death certificate were filed --and I know many at that time were not-- could it still be available with the State or was it lost due to the fire?
