|Bio and Links|
|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.

Thanks for the links, these have been completed. I've transferred his memorial to your care, since we're not related. Have a good evening.

I have added the information you gave me along with the links to parents and his wife. Thank you for the information.
I have added him to his parents and added his wife to him with changes to her name. Thank you for the information.
I have added his parents and his wives. Thank you for the information. I have credited you with providing the information on the memorial. Just so you know, the stones placed are new ones, mostly, because the cemetery has been hit 3 different times and headstones have been found on farms around the area and some simply destroyed. The cemetery commitee is trying to restore what they can.
Carmen, I transferred him to you. I transcribed this cemetery (and several more)as a service to others in the late 90's. I'm over 80, so trying to transfer as many as possible.
