White Oak Cemetery


White Oak Cemetery is located in section 9 of Medicine Township, in the southeast corner of Mercer County. It is approximately three miles east of the village of Half Rock, southeast of blacktop JJ, in the middle of the section. It is approximately 1/2 mile from the nearest road and is not accessable by vehicle. The cemetery has long been abandoned, and the last survey of it stated that "Only four markers located, all down, broken and scattered." This list has been compiled from various sources including old surveys, burial records and family histories. It should not be considered a complete list of burials.
