Chester Cemetery, Griever and Estelle Oklahoma

According to Maymie, her grandma, Polly Huff Wilson, died about 1899 at the family home in Griever Canyon, Woods (now Major), Oklahoma and was buried in the Chester Cemetery.  No headstone has been found but there are several unreadable and unmarked stones.  We may never know if Grandma Polly Huff Wilson was really buried in the Chester Cemetery or on the Wilson farm at Greever.

Below is a picture of the road sign at Griever Creek, Oklahoma.


Here is an old map showing Chester, Estelle and Greever.  Maymie said she was born at Estelle in one record and at her grandpa Hatfield's homestead in another record -- are they one and the same??
