It very important in any type of research to be as accurate as possible. For example, in an interview with a person from SE Oklahoma there was mention made of the 'Bug Tussle cemetery."  Yet, in reflection and researching most sources will say the nearest cemetery to that community, located on a spur into Lake Eufala, is really Oak Hill cemetery in nearby McAlester.  Someone trying to verify the location of such a spot would be greatly confused without specifics as to just where this location was to be found.

The person had a good story - said to be well known in the region - that a witch 'hag' comes out of one graves in that cemetery and then goes into another.   Without better location information it is impossible to verify the event or to debunk it as mere local legend.
