Glen Oak Cemetery


St. Petersburg, FL


Directions: Glen Oak Cemetery is located at 2012 Auburn Street between 18th and 22nd Avenues South next to St. Jude's Holiness Church St. Petersburg, FL.

Notes: Glen Oak was established in 1874 next to an aboriginal mound believed to belong to the late Manasota or early Weedon Island People who inhabited the area around 200 AD. The first burial in Glen Oak Cemetery was Miss Emma B. Kimball 1874. This cemetery has the distinction of being the oldest cemetery in St. Petersburg; the church and cemetery were designated a local historic landmark in 1992. There were reportedly 300 interments in Glen Oak, however due to senseless vandalism only 38 headstones remain. The asterisk after an individuals name indicates that this is one of the remaining headstones in Glen Oak.

On July 13, 2001 Pinellas Genealogy Cemetery Chair, Lesleigh Laite Butts recorded and photographed the 38 remaining headstones. In 1993 the City of St. Petersburg Planning and Community Codes Services Department produced a study of the cemetery, mound and church. This study was published as the Glen Oak Management Plan and provided information on additional individuals presumably interred in Glen Oak. The Glen Oak Management Plan information has been incorporated into the Pinellas Genealogy Society canvass data in the hopes that researchers of these families, and any others who have documentation of burial here, will contact the Pinellas Genealogy Society so that data may be updated accordingly.
