Lacey Cemetery is quite small & is on the south side of highway 51 about 10 miles west of Hennessey.

My paternal great, great grandfather Isaac was born on May 13, 1838 in Amsterdam, Holland.  As a young boy he and his family immigrated to the United States and lived in Michigan.  According to family tradition, after the Civil War Isaac changed his last name from Lennox to Brown to match the surname of the family who raised him.  Then in 1878 he married Maria DeFries and they lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa for awhile and eventually moved near Hennessey, Oklahoma.  Isaac died in 1902 and is buried in the Lacey, Cemetery near his daughter, Sennia, who died in 1906 leaving a husband and a daughter.

Isaac Brown died Jan. 9, 1902 age 65 years

It was a very bright day and I had a difficult time getting the inscription on Isaac’s headstone visible.  However, there’s a great photo okcemeteries (it doesn’t always seem to work though).
