Many volunteers have worked very hard to provide the researchers
of Jefferson County a listing of Cemeteries and to provide pictures
of headstones to help you in your personal research.
So please do not take the cemetery listings and pictures
that others have worked so hard to provide and add it
to any other website as your own.
for understanding and respecting
the work of others.

All names followed by **** in comments
are from Oakwood Cemetery Records. Dates from their records may be burial dates
and not actual death dates, I have added the names from their records to try and
record everyone known to be buried here, I had originally added all names and dates
that differ from what we found. I have removed some that were obvious spelling
errors but have left many.
To give an example: Listed is Elmer R. Shirley we found a stone for him
and although the stone does not indicate that he was KIA his death date would
indicate that he was, then listed is Elmer R. Shirley Oakwood had the date listed
as 4-30 1948 which is probably the burial date of Elmer who actually died in 1945,
then there is Ely Shirley Jr. with the same burial date as Elmer so could be that
Elmer was also known as Ely.
