|My grandparents were getting well along in years when we
came to Sully County and one Sunday morning they took a walk over
grandfather’s homestead and selected a nice location in the Southeast
corner of his land for a Public Cemetery.
He donated his land and was the first person to be buried there.
Thomas Porter, a neighbor, was the second and my Uncle Danville
was the third. Since then,
my grandmother, father, Uncle Rueben, Uncle John and Aunt Sarah Green,
and numerous cousins and dear friends and neighbors have been laid to
rest there. The cemetery
still stands 2 miles northwest of what is left of Okobojo.
