Cofer Cemetery

Submitted by Elsie Rumley

Directions: From Coalgate on 75 to Lehigh turn right (West) on Main street.
Go on road until you have to turn left, stay on it for approx. 1-1/2 mile to the first permanent road to the right (West) stay on that road for about 2-2/3 mile you are at the old Grasshopper School location. Last 3/4 mile looks like a lane.
A Miles Jones has a home there. He and I walked about a 1/4 mile North of his house up into the woods. I found two graves with walls about 3 Ft. high around them. One just had a rock, see info below for the other.

Just South of the graves was another but only marked with a rock at head & foot.

Mr. Jones didn't think this was the Grasshopper Cemetery but he said he hadn't been there in about 20 yrs.
This cemetery is about 1/4 mile South of Benjamin Smallwood grave both on Cowboy Longs ranch.
