The Oakhill Veterans Cemetery has
been fully photographed (Sept 2007) however not all
images are online yet.
The G.A.R. sections at Oakhill
and Mt. Olivet are fully indexed and online.
The index also includes G.A.R. and Spanish American
war veterans buried in other sections of both
Oakhill and Mt. Olivet. Most G.A.R. veterans
and some Spanish American War Veterans, have printable service histories.
This winter the task is to get
all the photos for Oakhill National Cemetery online
as well as find more of the older stones at both of
those cemeteries. Spring of 2008 will start
the search for older stones and monuments throughout
