    I find the name of this cemetery listed under two spellings:  Wanettaand Wanette.  The Genealogy Society listings of cemeteries(http://www.okgenweb.org/~cemeteries/cem-online/wanetta.html) spellsit as Wanetta, as do many researchers of families buried there.  Ifind some researchers, who have visited the cemetery and taken photos,spelling it Wanette.  This is also the spelling in Wikipedia, which Igenerally find to be very careful and credible.  A map segment in theWikipedia article on Wanette, Oklahoma, has the name spelled Wanette.City Data (http://www.city-data.com/city/Wanette-Oklahoma.html) alsospells the town's name thusly.  That appears to be the officialspelling of the town's name.
