  1. Grave houses were used by the Muskogee Creek and other Native Americans in South Georgia and Oklahoma Indian Territory. I’ve read about them. Loved ones would take food provisions to the houses for a certain period of time. I believe the houses and food were in case the Spirit returned. I find them very interesting as I’m Muskogee Creek.

    My Grandparents, Ames and Bessie Reid, are buried in this cemetery. My Mother told me that the grave was the grave of a little girl and that her toys were in the “attic”. There is another grave that has a stack of “fat liter” on it and legend is that the man that is buried there gathered this stack of fat liter his entire life and his wish was for the stack to be placed over his grave. Who knows if this is true or not?

    What I remember being told as a child is that the person buried here wanted all his tools to be stored in the “attic” of this building; however, if they were placed there, they have long since been removed.
