Hi Frances, You asked about the Brookside Cemetery in Roger Mills County, Oklahoma. The legal description is: NW 1/ 19-11-25. Located 3 miles east and 1 and 1/2 miles north of Sweetwater, Oklahoma. Jim H. Yell, from Texas donated one acre of land for the cemetery when his child, Archibald, died before he was one year old. This was the first grave in the cemetery and was dated 1899. Matthew Sooter owned the land to the south of the cemetery and in 1905-1906 donated 6/10 acre to the cemetery.

Also you asked about Grimes, Oklahoma, I saw somewhere that it existed from 1907-1971 and the legal discription was: 32,12N-24W. Also: Sayer is: 33 10N-23W. I forgot to write down where this was but I got it off the internet.
Hope this helps.
