Memorial Stone to be Dedicated at 2 p.m. Ceremony in Norman
For nearly 100 years, the final resting places of 39 people who died in a 1918 ward fire at Griffin Memorial Hospital have been left largely forgotten, buried in an unmarked site at the corner of North Porter and Rock Creek Road in the IOOF Cemetery.
