In Reply to: Looking for grave site of Jim Bourland by Rod Bourland of 480

Rod, you and me both. I have been searching the Memory Lane Cemetery records to no avail. The earliest records of the cemetery were destroyed in the 1930's I believe. The Caddo County Genealogical Society has canvassed the complete cemetery and no tombstone has been found. You would think there would be one. His mother lived in Anadarko at the time of his death. I have found no one by the name of Bourland buried here. I believe he came from Texas, close to Dallas, to Oklahoma and I have been searching there on the internet, thinking maybe they moved him later when his mother died. Maybe his father is buried in Texas and they wanted them buried next to him. I am grasping at any straw right now. :) Are you related to him? If he is still buried here, yes, we need a tombstone for him! That is very generous of you. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in wanting to find out where he is buried. Glad to know you found my newspaper accounts of his death on the caddo county website. Sandy Miller
