There is a Darrow / Bowline Memorial near Newblock Park in West Tulsa at the corner of Union & Charles Page Blvd. The memorial is very near the spot they were killed on that tragic day in 1929. It is very peaceful,beautiful memorial to these great men.

To the great,great uncle I never knew with the exception of your marker near new block park in Sand Springs. The last time I visited the site; your marker was moved to Chandler Park. You would be proud of our family as we are of you in your ultimate sacrifice to society. My mother, Patty Misner (Dillon) keeps a prayful watch out for you in Chandler Park, and the city of Tulsa does a wonderful job of upkeep. My Mom has many articles from the newspaper covering the event of the day and the thousands of dollars that were donated to Aunt Murtle to help the family; a true outpouring from the citizens of Tulsa.
