Oakland Cemetery


By June England Tuck and Deborah Tuck Young - indexed in the 1970's

 

This is a very old cemetery. Due to its location, burials stopped in the early 1900's, and people started using the Ridgeway cemetery. Some of the
people in this cemetery does not even show up in the census.

Oakland cemetery is located in the west part of the county. From I 30, turn north on FM road 2653, you will pass through Ridgeway, stay on 2653.
You will come to the Oakland church. The road going to the cemetery is next to this church. You will be going through some gates, across some
pastures to get to the cemetery. Might want to stop at home nearby and ask. There might have been one or two graves added after I did the
cemetery.
