Subject: [ARFAULKN] Civil War Veterans buried in Oakland Cemetery-Holland


Listed below are two groups of Civil War veterans who are buried in Oakland
Cemetery at Holland. The first list is of those with veterans' markers on
their graves, denoting their Civil War service. The second list is of
veterans who are buried in Oakland but who do not have a veterans' marker on
their grave. Some of those in the second list do have markers, some have
nothing but a native stone marking their grave, but none of them have a
veterans' marker. There are also about 15 others buried in the cemetery who
are the right age to have served in the Civil War, however, no evidence of
service has been found to date.
