Looking for grave site of Jim Bourland
Posted by: Rod Bourland (ID *****6056) Date: January 04, 2004 at 10:38:12

Jim Bourland was a Deputy marshal that was killed in the line of duty during a saloon gunfight in 1906. His funeral was the largest to that date and held in the Anadarko Opera house by the IOOF. News articles of the affair report the burial in the " Anadarko cemetery north of town " But I can find no listing for his grave at Memory Lane. I would very much like to place a headstone on his site if necessary. I have information the IOOF is still active in Anadarko but have so far been unable to locate a Phone number to see if they still have records from that date. Any help would be appreciated in helping me find and honor this old Lawman. Thanks...Rod Bourland
