Butner Cemetery

Submitted by:  Wilma Directo

The Old Butner Cemetery, is where my great grandmother Sarah Elizabeth Hooper Butner, the daughter of Edley Hooper, is buried, as well as, most of her children, some of her Grandchildren, and even some of her great grandchildren. The year of birth  that was posted is wrong, probably from the marker being so old  it was hard to read.  April 3, 1887, should  read April 3,1837.  I know the date of death  August 5, 1912 is correct.  S.E. Butner, died eleven days before my mother was born.  My grandmother Mary "Agnes" Butner Shepard was always  very sad, because she couldn't make the trip from Arkansas to  Oklahoma for her mother's funeral.

Here is a list of Sarah Elizabeth Hooper Butner's descendants, that do not have the name of Butner, that are buried in the cemetery: her daughters Mary Agnes Shepard and Dora Harriet Stephens; granddaughters Cecil L Butler and Opal J. Pollard; grandson Clifford Shepard and my sister, her granddaughter, is buried there, but to date Verna Morphew has not been added to the transcription.
