|Right now I am involved with a project in conjunction with the Sauk Centre Historical Society and the Shad-Patton Funeral Home to try to map and gather information on all the people in Oakland Cemetery, east of Sauk Centre, Stearns County, Minnesota.|
The oldest burial is of soldiers killed in the Sioux Uprising in 1863, but those were probably moved from the now-defunct Greenvale Cemetery that was shut down in 1874, the year Oakland was platted. At one point it was under the direction of the GAR, but went through a period of neglect and vandalism. In 1980, Louise Parker Pendroy renewed interest in the cemetery and since then it has been maintained.
Most records and many markers have been lost.

I believe there is an error on #69709219, Amy Hall Teller and her husband William W. Teller are buried in a family plot in Neversink NY. See #141048170 .
I will be happy to help any way I can.

Carmen, thanks for your reply. I have a copy of Garland's death certificate and Ballard is not shown as his mother's maiden name. It shows unknown. You must have found the Ballard name in something else. Have you other ideas where you may have came across the Ballard name?
In Garland's bio in the History of Harrison County in 1921, its states "...son of Jacob E. and Elizabeth (Miller) Miller..." In a cemetery book Harrison County Genealogical Society published it says "Elizabeth...dau. of Adam & Mary Miller" and Mary Miller is buried in same cemetery. The Death cert. for son Robert shows Miller with nothing to indicate it is not her maiden name. Of course I do know this does not mean any of these are correct.
Not sure what is actually right. Wish the marriage record of Jacob Miller and Elizabeth would surface. Jacob is son of my 3rd Great Grandfather, Simon Miller, who is buried in the Hamilton Cemetery in Mercer Co., Mo.

I see where you say in a flower left on Garland's memorial that his mother Elizabeth was a Ballard. I would like to know your source or sources. I have two or three sources that say her parents were Adam and Mary Miller. Also, are you related?

I see you left a flower at this memorial. Do you have a connection to William and Miriam? They are my 3 x great grandparents through Jeremiah Miller.

Carmen....didn't you lead the project to plot & register the graves at Oakland Cemetery? If so, do you know which of the graves are Civil War (CW) vets? I'm guessing that some had official govt issued CW gravestones and others didn't.
The same holds true for the 3 Melrose Cemeteries where there are more than 25 CW vets buried. Some have original govt issued markers others have military markers that the family made the replacement requested.
I wanted to replace some CW vets stones but the VA continues to insist the request come from family members.....after 150 years its near impossible to find blood relatives of CW vets. Its such a rediculuous requirement.
I'm wondering if you or the Sauk Centre Hist folks have attempted to get free replacement gravestones for any CW vets. If so, can you share the details with me? You can email me. See my profile for details.
