    Teehee Family Cemetery - Deleware County OK

    The Saline Courthouse started on one person's property then was moved to another then, when things became more uniform, eventually ended up near the Teehee family property. There's a pdf file floating around that says this cemetery was behind the courthouse. But when they started to fix the place up they moved it to where it is now which is near the entrance gate.

    James (Jim) Teehee, s/o Charley Bearpaw & Margaret Proctor, m. Ella Mixwater & Susie B. Smith & with one of these two had the children: Annie, Oscar, Felix, Perry, Moody & Christian.

    It says it's in Mayes county but it's actually in Delaware county. On 412 you have to pass the Delaware county sign to turn down the road to go to it. I don't know how many stones they had at one time but there's only 6 left. None carry the name Teehee. Otherwise there's field rocks & crosses noting burial locations.

    On one of these haunting sites they claim there was a headstone noting someone was murdered. There is again. It was broken, taken away & fixed & is now returned. And it belongs to this man: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=84163866. He was indeed murdered. But I don't believe it was on the property. It's reported he was murdered by Stand Rowe at Stand's brother Jim Rowe's house.

    If you're a Teehee relative & have any records on who's buried here please add them to Find A Grave.
