Oak Grove Cemetery

From New Castle go north on Route 311 towards Paint Bank, go about 4 miles and come to County Route 658, turn left and go until you come to a brick ranch style house on the right. This is the first house you will come to on route 658. The cemetery is on private property and the owner is Cecil Flinchum. He will be more than glad to direct you to the cemetery.
