Carney Cemetery History

The Carney Cemetery is located one mile north of Carney Oklahoma on U.S. 177. (Latitude: 354938N, Longitude: 0970109W). It is divided into twelve blocks and covers 14 acres.

It has often been complimented as one of the most beautiful small cemeteries in the Nation. Much of this honor must go to the early sextons who labored long and lovingly and gave of their time, talents, and gifts. The cemetery was incorporated on the 17th day of May in the year 1905 from the territory of Oklahoma. There were fifty three original members of the association.

In November, 1892, Mrs. Effie Pardee and her two year old son died and were buried in what is now Block 4. Another story tells of a family passing through the country in 1891 whose daughter died and was buried in the same block. It is not known for sure who was buried in the cemetery first, but we do know that Deed Number One was issued to Anna B. Wood for Lot 17, Block 4 on August, 1905 for $2 dollars by the newly formed association.

The original land was donated in 1905 by Sylvester Williams. Later on, more land was donated by Alvin and Mamie Hudiburg, Harvey Jr. and Nellie Kates, Doyle and Ruby Gaither and Harold and Juanita Carpenter.

From the original formation of the Carney Cemetery until today, a span of over 100 years, the people of Carney have supported the cemetery with gifts, labor and dedication.
