Haile Cemetery is south of McAlester, situated east of the McAlester Municipal airport and Hwy 69, in a remote area at the end of LaRue road. The access road is all but gone.
I could not find a record of it at the court house, or the name of the owner. Many old maps do list this cemetery in them.
This cemetery is an old, very unkempt family cemetery, which is no longer being used for new burials, and can be considered abandoned.
Once or twice a year the city of McAlester does mow and clean it out, as well as the access road to it.
There are at least 28 gravesites with large rocks as headstones. Some rocks were etched, but most were illegible. If anyone knows the name of a burial here, please contact me and I will be happy to add it.
This is a complete listing of all existing and legible headstones as of Aug 31, 2004.- Rhonda Borthick
