Ghost Towns of Oklahoma!

I guess it would first be useful to define what is meant by “ghost town.”  Unfortunately, there seems to be no universal definition — towns that are completely abandoned, towns that are dead and dying, towns that may have never been a town at all (a hamlet, a village, a camp, etc.), or towns where the population has decreased at least eighty (80) percent from its maximum (can these really be considered “ghost” towns if people actually remain?).

Regardless of the definition, Oklahoma seems to have quite a few.  Here are a few sites that document these towns (in Oklahoma as well as throughout the U.S. and the world).
