MARSHALL CEMETERY
Wybark, Muskogee County, Oklahoma

by Preston Washington

Wybark was an African/American town/settlement in northern Muskogee Co., 4 miles north of Muskogee. A post office from January 18, 1890 to June 30, 1940. The name is a modification of Verdark, the railroad name for the town that was coined from the names of the Verdigris and Arkansas Rivers. The cemetery is mostly overgrown although a section had been recently mowed. I got there from US 69 (Muskogee City) go east on US 62, north on Highway 16, turn left at county marker - WYBARK - cross three railroad tracks, right turn stay on gravel then black top road (Wybark Road) to T intersection (60th Street), right turn to 25th Street (Marshall Cemetery Road), left turn, less than ¼ mile, a white cloth tied to a pole marks the entrance on your right. No fence.
