On August 20, 2014 I visited the Waggoner Cemetery and was amazed at what I saw. Bill Smithers bought the land around 2008. It had many trees on it. He and his grandsons cut them down, fixed the fenced around it, dug up the stones that he could find and set them back up. Most of them you can read or at least part. There are many stones missing. He had a book showing the names, birthdates, death dates, parents names and who they married and when on most of them. Also, there were pictures of some of the families. Lots of history was also put together as well as copies of part of the verification of information. A lot was gotten at our Court House, I am sure.The cemetery is in a very peaceful place and visible from the house where Bill is living. He says that at times the family comes to visit the cemetery. His wife was laid to rest just inside the gate. He will be beside her someday. He is proud of the work he has done and keeps it mowed.
Many thanks go to Bill Smithers for all his work in maintaining this little cemetery.
