OAK HILL CEMETERY


Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2003


This is an abandoned and neglected cemetery located in the southeast corner of Cooke County.   There are many small footstones, some with initials, which I tried to place in the order found.  This may be very confusing to some but may help with their identification later.  From FM 372, turn west on Oak Hill Rd.   It is six tenths of a mile on the north side of the road.   Last surveyed 14 Feb 2003 and pictures taken of the few remaining stones in 2008.
