Hello Find A Grave members: PLEASE READ!|
Please do not add names to Oakwood Cemetery in Farmington, Oakland, Michigan. As the data manager for Oakwood, I have been asked to monitor that cemetery for the Library, genealogical society and the city. I have spent two years, and several thousand hours, researching the people buried in Oakwood. I have been to the cemetery 33 times and taken almost 2000 pictures.
There are at least a dozen people who are listed on grave monuments in Oakwood who aren't actually buried there. The cemetery has been completely photographed and we know who is buried there. We are adding recently burials as they occur, so that we can keep our master list current.
PLEASE don't add names to Oakwood Cemetery in Farmington. The library system is directing their researchers to Find A Grave for their research and we want the information to be accurate. We have a master list for the cemetery, birth, marriage and death records, and census data. We are still correcting lot numbers and some other data that we have discovered is incorrect. Many of the city records are NOT correct.
Thank you for your cooperation.
I have learned a very valuable lesson from this project. You can't just walk through a cemetery, take a picture of a grave monument and assume that the person is buried there. It must be researched!

Your headstone photo is not legible and not an improvement over the original which can be read. Can you delete your photo pls.
Chris do you know what lot number Aurilla is buried in Oakwood Cemetery?

I just discovered the headstone of Betsy Durand. I believe she is the mother of Joseph Durand 97333356. I just created a memorial for Betsy 160841904. It is located at the old Ovid Street Cemetery in Seneca Falls New York where Joseph was born.

Chris, regarding the memorial for Ira Burton Crain memorial # 143508581, it has been recently discovered with documentation that his parents are Joseph O. Crane jr. & Lydia Ann Burton, not Samuel Crane who is actually a brother of Joseph. Thanks, Jerome

Thanks for catching my goof. I've corrected the two memorials.
thanks for all your hard work on find a grave!
Please remove the death certificate you added for this memorial. In my "bio" I specifically asked people NOT to add death certificates and obituaries to my memorials. I've had to have several deleted by the Find A Grave admin.
