Dougherty Cemetery
Murray County, Oklahoma

Dougherty is a small community in the heart of the Arbuckle Mountains. It is located on the banks of the Washita River in prime farming and ranching land. The Cemetery was originally part of the Chickasaw Indian Allotment to the Mazeppa Turner family. When Mazeppa started building his home on a hill in the middle of his allotment, ancient Indian graves were uncovered when digging began. Mazeppa applied to have his allotment changed to an area on the Washita River. The Old Indian Gravesite' was used as the local burial site after that. Of interest may be that the 1940's & '50's big band singer, Kay Starr, was born and raised in Dougherty. Her parents are buried in the cemetery. The Town of Dougherty is at the end of SH 110, about 10 miles southeast of Davis, OK. The cemetery on the east side of town is in excellant condition and well kept. There is much pride in the cemetery and local people are adding gravestones to many of the unmarked graves as records are discovered.
