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.

EELLS PLOT
An Eells Plot was reached by travelling west from Waukon, Iowa 1.5 miles on Road A52, thence north on Road W60 one mile, thence east about .5 mile on a now hard surfaced road leading back to Waukon. Although some stones removed from the cemetery exist, it is believed that those buried there were reinterred in the Oakland Cemetery, Waukon, Iowa. The area is now cropland
