I am the sexton for Oakland Cemetery and am currently working on entering and updating all of the burials in the cemetery. If you have any information on any of the burials there, please let me know. Also, if you have previously posted a burial there, thank you so much. If you would like to transfer management of those memorials, just let me know. I would appreciate it.
Chambers Parsons My name is Vickie and my mother in law was Callie D Parsons-Bird. I'm trying to find information on where Chambers B. Parsons may be buried. If you have any information that you could share would be greatly appreciated.
Lorenzo Dowe Pearle Lorenzo was my great-grandfather. My dad, Troy Pearle, used to come to the cemetery to tend to the grave of his grandfather but he too has passed on. No one in the family seems to know exactly where Lorenzo is buried in the cemetery because evidently there is not a marker. The family would like to put a marker on his grave. We have our annual family reunion in early June and would like to do so at that time. Can this be arranged?
I talked with you several years ago about Hugh Smith the grandfather of Boss Shannon. I had found your book that had the information about the death of Hugh Smith in 1881 and his burial at the Oakland Cemetery. Did you find his grave and did you get a confederate headstone for his grave?
