LITCHFIELD FAMILY GRAVEYARD

                                 

      

This is a complete list of burials in the family plot.  This is not a designated cemetery, just a family graveyard.  It is on private property a couple of miles north of Elk City.  This was submitted by the late Bill Salmon who was the unofficial Litchfield family historian. Please contact Salmon family for permission to access the property.  It is not possible to drive to the graveyard. There is no room for any further burials.

The story goes that this person is known only as "The Short Surveyor".  The surveyor was said to have died while rooming with J.C. and Sarah Litchfield and that he was buried in the Litchfield plot because he had no known relatives.  We may never know his true identity.
