Avant Cemetery
Avant, Osage County, Oklahoma

Lat: 36° 29' 55"N, Lon: 96° 04' 05"W
Bigheart Twp, R1E Sec 1

Submitted by Charlotte Keen, Apr 19, 2004 [jkeen14660@aol.com]. Total records = 145.

From Skiatook, OK go north on Hwy 11 (Cincinnati Ave) about 10 miles. When you get to Avant, OK make a left at the Avant sign. Follow Old Hwy 11 to the right. Follow this road to the cemetery sign, about 1 mile. Turn right and follow the road to the cemetery.

The cemetery is fenced but not maintained. A lady in the cemetery said they burn it off in the spring each year. The oldest marked graves are 23 Dec 1910. Two buried the same day.

There are several very old and beautiful iron fences in the cemetery. There are several pipe fences around the graves.

I walked and recorded this cemetery, Apr 17, 2004.
