|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.

Hello, can you verify that the Norton family you have listed in Oakland cemetery, is in fact buried there? Their descendants, my first cousins, claim their ancestors, Martha, Don, etc. are buried in Greenwood, down the street from Oakland. Can you help? Thanks.

I'm not related, but her niece Luella Stabler Sawyer (George Lund Stabler's daughter) was married to my biological great grandfather, Charles Franklin Sawyer.

Madame: Your heart is in the right place, but this man's burial is not. As he was a U.S. soldier who died while a Prisoner Of War, in Richmond, Va., he'd have been probably reinterred in the Richmond National Cemetery just after the war.
Most likely he is an "unknown" as those U.S. soldiers who died in downtown Richmond hospitals were reinterred as unknowns in the aforementioned cemetery.
So, you have him buried not in a National Cemetery, but in a Confederate Cemetery 60+ miles away.

Would you like me to transfer - no relationship with me. I just happened to be there and snapped a couple pics that people requested.

You are welcome indeed!

My name is Dan Bell and I work for the South Carolina State Park Service. Our agency owns and manages Rivers Bridge State Historic Site, the site of the Civil War battle where Alvin Blood was wounded. I was excited to see the photo of Alvin Blood that you posted and was wondering if we could get a high resolution scan of it that we might use in future interpretive media at the site. We've identified most of the battle's casualties and used photos of several of them in a permanent exhibit that we recently installed.
Thank you very much. I hope to hear back from you soon.

I have not gotten the Lange Memorial you said you sent. Did you transfer it to someone else?
