Alex Cemetery, Alex, Grady, Oklahoma, USA

Notes: The Alex Cemetery is a well-kept rural cemetery laid out in sections, each which run north to south. Depending on who you talk to and their age, you will find the Alex Cemetery is sometimes also called the Morris Cemetery.

Originally, the land for the cemetery was given by William Frank Morris whose homeplace sat to the north of the cemetery. It was called the Morris Cemetery. The original cemetery was the southern half of the current cemetery consisting of Sections 1 So., 2 So. and 3 So. Section 2 South holds the earliest stone found dated 1876. Cemetery Sexton Sammie Williams reports there are no actual burial records for these sections. Section 1 South begins at the southwest entrance. There are unmarked graves as well as graves with stones which are no longer legible in the older sections. A few of those stones found are listed under "Unknown" on this site.

It is not known by this author when the cemetery changed names and became the Alex Cemetery. Most likely the name change came when the need arose for more burial space and it expanded to the north. Eventually, Clifford Ball, who then owned the Morris land, donated five acres of land on the east side of the cemetery for more expansion. The northern half of the cemetery consists of Sections 1N thru 8N. These begin with Section 1N at the northwest entrance. Using the Hybrid map below, you can clearly see the sections in the cemetery.

Current cemetery sexton is Sammie Williams. He oversees the upkeep of the cemetery which relies solely on donations. Donations can be made to the Alex Cemetery Fund. Donations, as well as volunteers, are always welcome.

Alex Cemetery Veterans' Monument: Sitting atop the hill in this peaceful cemetery is a beautiful Veterans' monument. It was dedicated in November 1995. Click on the monument photo for a list of those individuals.

Directions: From the junction of Hwy. 19 and Alex Main Street, go about one and a half miles east on Highway 19 til you see the Alex Cemetery sign, turn right (south) on Cemetery Road and go about 1/4 mile. Cemetery is on the east side of road.
