OAKLAWN CEMETERY
Oaklawn Cemetery is probably the largest cemetery in Independence County.
I transcribed over 7,000 names and there are still some graves that are no
longer marked or their markers are no longer legible.
Oaklawn Cemetery can be found in Batesville. Turn South onto Sidney Street
from Harrison Street (Hwy 69) at the traffic light at this intersection. The
entrance to Oaklawn can be seen when you make the turn.
The paved roads, which many of the townspeople use as a track to keep in
shape by walking, are all labeled. Those running east and west with numbers,
except for the last one which is labeled South Loop; those running north and
south with letters.
I've put the entire inventory in alphabetical order, but for those who might
want to visit and find the stones, I numbered the sections created by the
roads and put the appropriate number next to each name.
The sections are as follows: Section 1 is wedged shaped rather than
rectangular-it is bounded by Sidney Street, 2, and B.
Section 2-bounded by B, 1, C, 2
Section 3-bounded by C, 1, D, 2
Section 4-bounded by D, 1, E, 2
Section 5-bounded by E, 1, F, 2
Section 6-bounded by F, 1, G, 2
Section 7-bounded by G, 1, H, 2
Section 8-bounded by H, 1, I, 2
Section 9-bounded by I, 1, J, 2
Section 10-bounded by J, 1, the road that runs around the east side of the
cemetery to Myers Street, and 2
Section 11-these are the graves in the small grassy space on the other side
of the road that runs around the east side of the cemetery to Myers Street
Section 12-bounded by H, 2, I, 3
Section 13-bounded by G, 2, H, 3
Section 14-bounded by F, 2, G, 3
Section 15-bounded by E, 2, F, 3
Section 16-bounded by D, 2, F, a small road is not labelled, but runs from
road E to road C at the end of section 16 and 18
Section 17-bounded by C, the same small road that is not labelled, 2, D
Section 18-bounded by C, the same small road that is not labelled, E, 3
Section 19-bounded by B, 2, C, 3
Section 20-bounded by A, 2, B, 3
Section 21-bounded by Sidney St., 2, A, 3
Section 22-bounded by Sidney St., 3, A, 4
Section 23-bounded by A, 3, B, 4
Section 24-bounded by B, 3, C, 4
Section 25-bounded by C, 3, D, 4
Section 26-bounded by D, 3, E, 4
Section 27-these are the graves between road 4 and Myers Street
Section 28-bounded by E, 3, F, South Loop
Section 29-bounded by F, 3, G, South Loop
Section 30-bounded by G, 3, H, South Loop
Section 32-bounded by H, 3, I, South Loop
Since there are so many names, I've divided them up and will add them as
I get them arranged and typed.
