Vassar Cemetery, Dewey County, Oklahoma
VASSAR SE Section 26 - Twp 19 - Range 20
from Vici 4-1/4 mile West on 60 Highway on North side of highway.
In 1902 a family named Stevens was passing through the Vici area. Their little seven-year old daughter became ill and died. In those days people were buried where they died along the road.
At that time W. C. Bill Sheets gave two acres of land for a cemetery. In 1928 two additional acres were purchased from Mr. Sheets.
Bill lived southwest, across the road, from the cemetery in a dugout. Later he
lived in a granary on the same place. The land is currently owned by Charles Duer; a large tree has been left as a landmark.
Mr. Sheets pased away in December 1928 and is buried in the cemetery.
The Vassar Bapatist Church was started in 1906 just east of the cemetery.
