Hi, Does anyone know just where the Klondike Cemetery is..I was told it was in Jefferson and if that is so---where in Jefferson??I was raised there and cannot remember any cemeteries. Have relatives in this cemetery and am very interested.. It must be fairly small Thanks to all of you knowledgable people!!!! Researching--HASKINS, WRIGHT, HUBBARD, CLAWSON.

Answer: Bethel Cemetary, aka Klondike Cemetary, located in Rock Island Township, eight miles west, four miles south, one mile east, and one-half mile north from the junction of US highway 81 and State Highway 11 in Medford. The last one half mile to the cemetary is along a plowed field and is not a very good dirt road. The cemetary was fenced, yet found in a overgrown condition. Markers are visible from the approaching roadway.

Dee Raymond Tue Oct 29 17:30:53 1996
Can anyone tell me the location of a town in OK called Estelle in the year 1904? My great grandfather, William Perry HOBSON died on 8 Feb. 1904. His obituary which appeared in the Pratt County Republican newspaper located in Pratt, KS says that he died in Estelle, OK apparently while visiting other relatives with the same last name of HOBSON. I'm trying to find out more about his death and who he was visiting. Since his funeral was held in Pratt just 2 days later, Estelle must have been fairly close to Pratt. If that is the case, then Estelle must have been in either Woods, Major, Grant, or Alfalfa counties. However, Estelle no longer appears on current maps. There is an Estella that is in Craig County in eastern OK, but that would appear to have been too far away. Thanks,

William Dale AllenTue Oct 22 10:24:27 1996
