Being involved with Oak Hill cemetery since 2003, I have accumulated a lot of information. While I have resisted using the virtual cemetery format, I have decided that if I volunteer, the information provided will be accurate, and I can encourage people to become actively involved and maybe visit the cemetery in person. Most early cemeteries are non profit, and will only survive if families get interested and involved. Although the requirement is only to fulfill photo requests, and we have every stone at Oak Hill photographed, there is usually more to the story than a name on the monument, for instance is it a burial or a memorial, so trust but verify, and ask questions. Keep in mind Oak Hill Cemetery is over 20 acres and has more than 10,000 burials since 1854.|
In the spirit of Find a Grave, the Board of Directors has allowed me to upload volunteer photo requests, and minimal information without charge as stated by Find A Grave. But additional search information is to remain out of public messages due to privacy concerns. The look up service and requests for information from cemeteries is usually handled as a request for donations or if an extensive search is required an hourly fee is suggested. The proceeds from these requests go into our Friends of Oak HIll Cemetery Fund or to defray the costs of maps and educational materials we provide throughout the year.

Thank you very kindly. It will not be used for profit. You may enjoy browsing the Vermont Civil War site. There is several thousand pages of history to read, view and learn.The webmaster has spent twenty years creating this, and there's never an end.
Again, Thank you.

Good Afternoon Folks,
I am an amateur historian, and at present am working on a project for the Vermont Civil War site, trying to locate the last resting place of many of our veterans that served.
James Hammersley was born in Pittsford about 1841. He enlisted with the Vt. Vols. from that town June 7th of 1863, being m.o. May 13,1865.
I would like to ask your permission to use the photo of his Find A Grave monument on the Vermont Civil War site ( www.vermontcivilwar.org"
Thank you for your consideration on this.
Thank you for taking a picture of John Lomison's headstone!

Thank you so much for this act of kindness. You are much appreciated!
|Jim Ottmer||Henry Clay Camp|
The photos (two) you have posted on his memorial (#62690852) are photos of his daughter's headstone. Could you put them on her memorial... Marion Camp (#141493134)? Thank you!
|Jim Ottmer||Memorial 64598219|
Could you please remove the photo from this memorial. We have just found that Marion Camp was not buried with her husband. (News to us.)

Many thanks for taking and posting his marker picture to his memorial.
|Anne Woods||Dr. Clyde Meffert|
Thank you so much for the great clear picture of Dr. Meffert's stone. It is outstanding and perfect. I appreciate your continued hard work and care that you give to folks looking for a specific stone in the Cemetery.

Thank you very for your work on these photos; I really appreciate it!
I noticed your comment on the difficulty of obtaining a good photo when the light is poor and the inscription is shallow. I have run into that problem myself on several occasions; the best solution that I was able to devise was to take a shot from a very oblique angle, gaining a reflection from light which was coming in from the side, such as on # 124021251 and # 45299897.
Thanks again, and have a fantastic week!
