Bio and Links
Bio Photo As part of a team from the Dallas Genealogical Society, I am engaged in transcribing the 25,000 plus burials at Oakland Cemetery in Dallas, Texas. Additionally I have documented the burial locations of the mayors of Dallas, superintendents and board presidents of the Dallas schools. I have recorded the burial locations of my family members in Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia and North Carolina. Recently added memorials and photos for two cemeteries in small towns in Calabria Region, Italy.

Photo Request for Ira Camp
I received the problem error from Find A Grave and I just wanted to personally "thank you" for your efforts to fulfill my request, and the verification of no headstone. At least I have the plot and grave number of where he is. Again, thank you so much for your time and effort on my behalf!

Thank you so much for searching for Mr. Tarver's gravestone. Of coarse I did not know that he had no gravestone. Thanks for the plot number-etc' you sent and thanks for his wife Ouida Fay's information, that she does have a stone. I will put in a request for a photo of her gravestone. Thanks, Charlene

Mt. Auburn Cemetery
Hi Barbara,

Thank you SOO much for sharing all the information you have on Mt. Auburn Cemetery, and the other cemeteries in the immediate are!

I really appreciate all the work you and the genealogical associate are doing. I am comforted knowing that you and your association are documenting my grandparent's stillborn baby buried in Mt. Auburn, and all those buried in Mt. Auburn, and the surrounding cemeteries.

God Bless,

Mt. Auburn Cemetery
My paternal grandparent's stillborn baby girl is buried in Mt. Auburn Cemetery: Baby Girl Samuels Find A Grave #87657351.

It is my understanding that in 1966 the City of Dallas made Mt. Auburn, as well as a Confederate Soldier Cemetery and a Black Cemetery into a larger area city park named Opportunity Park.

I am also told that when the park was made some headstones could have possibly covered up.

I see that there are 406 memorial listed here on Find A Grave for Mt. Auburn Cemetery, which includes the memorial I created for Baby Girl Samuels.

Is there a formal or informal list of all the people interned in Mt. Auburn, and where they are located?

I would also like to know the exact location of Mt. Auburn when looking on Google Earth.

Can you help me with these questions?

Thank you, and God Bless,

James is my Uncle and while he and his wife Anna Belle did own burial plots at Oakland, neither are buried there. James is buried in Winterfield cemetery, Hopkins county, Texas. Anna Belle is buried in Arkansas.
