The following Massey Cemetery family information was submitted by :Mollie Jameson Shannon .
The Massey Community, Pittsburg Co. OK  was located southeast of Crowder on the Crowder-Blocker road, and  was named for William Wilson Massey who was Choctaw Indian. Massey Cemetery is located on land that originally belonged to the Choctaw & Chickasaw Nations. 
An act of congress approved June 30, 1913 states that where a cemetery exists within the lands of the Five Civilized Tribes, that land was to be set aside for cemetery purposes, not to exceed 20 acres. In a document filed May 15, 1915, Victor M. Locke Principle Chief of the Choctaw Nation & Douglas H. Johnston Govenor of the Chickasaw, deeded 3 acres of land to the Pittsburg Co. Commissioners for the Massey  Cemetery. On Sept. 8, 1964, the Massey Cemetery Association purchased an additional 3 acres from William W. Massey Jr. for cemetery use. The oldest marked grave in the cemetery is that of Lucy Anna Wolfington Crouch, mother-in-law to William W. Massey Sr. Death date Apr. 13, 1889. 

William Blanchard has photographed some of the gravestones for this cemetery.
