Birth: Feb. 7, 1832
Missouri, USA
Death: Apr. 6, 1900
Wise County
Texas, USA

This cemetery is named for John T. and Sarah Waggoner, on whose land it was established. Martha Fullingim's burial in 1868 is the first recorded here. The Waggoners deeded the property to Wise County in 1885. I guess sometime later the name was changed to Oaklawn.
