Armstrong Academy Cemetery

Choctaw Nation

 

Armstrong Academy was a school for Choctaw boys from about 1844 until it burned 18 January 1920. The cemetery is located just west of the old buildings, but not on the property that was originally part of the grounds. The cemetery is located in present-day Bryan County, Oklahoma.

This list includes the names of those who are known to be buried there, but whose graves remain unmarked.
