Civil War Union Soldiers & Sailors Buried in Oklahoma

These were the Union veterans that came West after the Civil War and eventially settled in the surrounding states of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Texas. Many of them made one of the several famous Land Runs into Oklahoma Territory or came later and established homes.

I recently published all of my Civil War research material in a book called


Civil War Union Soldiers and Sailors Buried in Oklahoma."

This 754-page hard bound book contains (when known) the full name of each of the more than 8,600 veterans, their birthdates, birthplaces, death dates, death places, burial places, full maiden name of the wife with all vital data and the names of children with their vital information.

The veteran's military rank is indicated along with his individual company, ship, and regiment name.

Remarks are also included when it is known that the veteran has a military-style headstone or a double headstone with his wife. Mention is made when other family members are buried in adjacent lots.

A contact name and address is often included when a living friend or relative is known. When the notation "more data in files" appears, this means a researcher will be able to find more information from my personal Civil War files which have been donated to the Oklahoma Historical Society, 2100 N. Lincoln Blvd, Okla City, OK 73105.

My search for the burial sites of these Civil War veterans in Oklahoma has been a continuing project for the past 21 years. The collection of data represents both actual personal field canvassing in state cemeteries and the use of secondary extraction of existing cemetery records.

Price of the book is $75.00, postpaid. Texas residents should add 8.25% sales tax.

Order from: N. Dale Talkington, 800 Buckhill Dr., McKinney, TX 75070-5373.
