Makee Township OAKLAND CEMETERYMAIN
The Oakland Cemetery at Waukon, Iowa is at the south end of the city on State
Highways 9/76. Originally described as an entity in a Waukon Standard newspaper
item in the May 16, 1892 issue, which stated that the Waukon Cemetery would
thereafter be known as the Oakland Cemetery. This cemetery comprises the original
Waukon Cemetery, including the "1920 Addition" (shown as part of the
original cemetery on a plat of September 20, 1875, the St. John's Addition (Lutheran)
probably acquired by the Waukon Burying Ground Association in early 1927, the
German Addition, conveyed by Warranty Deed on July 1, 1927 by the Waukon Burying
Ground Association, and
"Alleys" created by establishing burial lots in spaces between existing lots in the four other entities and by renumbering some existing lots.

Well I suspose that is enough to confuse you for a while. I don't know if you really want all of this, but do with what you want.
My only question as of right now is did you ever hear of an disagreement between Daniel, Enos and the older boys?
Thanks for everything, if you have any questions let me know. I'll study what you have a little more.
