    --  Elliott and Lockhart,

    This genealogy reports that C A died in Dixie, Oklahoma.  I cannot find any town or settlement named Dixie in Oklahoma.  The whole southeastern region was originally called Little Dixie, and is still known by that name.  This area is basically the same as Choctaw Nation, and was opened to settlement by white settlers from 1898.  There is a Dixie Cemetery in Stephens County, which borders Little Dixie on the west.  I found an online registry, but it does not have a burial listing for C A Burton, or anyone recognizable as part of his immediate family.
