Westbrook Cemetery is in the southeastern part of Jack County. It's between Springtown and Perrin.
From Hwy 199, go northeast on FmRd 2210 for 1 mile. Turn right on Westbrook Road and go for one half mile. The gate (pictured above) is on the right. Lock combination is 1210. Follow the pasture road under the highline for one half mile (taking the left fork) you will see the cemetery ahead. (See picture below)

The Westbrook Cemetery Association contact is Patsy Strickland Cranford 817-341-0165 tc-pc@att.net . She was very helpful to us, and she welcomes anyone with interest in the cemetery. She said that there was once a Methodist Church at this site. The land around the cemetery is owned by Nadine Sartain Tucker.
Headstone photos were taken here in January 2013. 49 headstones were found. The cemetery was divided into 5 rows.
Row 1 started inside the gate to the left, and headstones were numbered as found in rows from left to right.

Email Sent In by Patsy Strickland Cranford tc-pc@att.net  About John C. or John Price Strickland

I looked up John Price Strickland on the internet and found out that the
John C Strickland was probably the same. This is what I found!!!!
Never married. Was a Texas Ranger and then joined up with outlaws. He rode
with Jesse James and the Younger brothers. Shot a man, was caught and jailed in Weatherford, Tx. To escape, he built a fire in his cell. A horse was waiting for him and his escape was successful. Before he returned to Indian Territory, he visited with his brothers, James Henry,Gibtown,TX and Daniel in Agnes, TX.
He also rode with Henry Starr, leader of Oklahoma outlaws. He was killed by outlaws over money. His brother, James Henry (my grandfather) was also a Texas Ranger. He went to the Indian Territory to retrieve his brother's body, but was told to leave that night or be killed also.
He must have been able to bring the body home to Westbrook to bury him, but why the name difference??????? Maybe a disgrace to have an outlaw relative????
Later she emailed -
You know, I think there was a mistake on that marker. Since P and C sound so much alike, maybe it was engraved wrong. However, that would be fun to have that on the page, possibly correcting the name??
My daughter who is visiting, said she remembered her grandfather, (my dad)
tell the story about the outlaw in the family. I probably heard it too in my younger days but didn't remember.
