Bio and Links
Bio Photo Our goal as FindAGrave members is to photograph Oakwood Cemetery in Waco, McLennan, Texas.

Special Note:

If there is NOT any Headstone or Marker Photo posted in blocks/sections that have been completed, we were unable to find one in the block/section designated as a burial place for an individual. NO Headstone/NO Marker will be designated either in the BIO or NOTE fields of a memorial.

If the spouse or person sharing the headstone is still living, we do not post a pre-need memorial or photo, as that is against F-A-G's rules to do so.

The following Blocks have been completed to the best of our ability:

Block 1 - completed as of Oct 2012
Block 2 - completed as of Jan 2013
Block 3 - completed as of Feb 2013
Block 4 - completed as of Mar 2013
Block 5 - completed as of April 2013
Block 6 - completed as of June 2013
Block 7 - completed as of July 2013
Block 8 - completed as of Aug 2013
Block 9 - completed as of Sep 2013
Note: In Block 9 there are 22 Unknown Confederate Soliders Headstones between lots 25 -28.
Block 10 - completed as of May 2014
Block 11 - completed as of June 2014
Block 12 - completed as of June 2014
Exception: There are two metal makers, whom we can't figure out who they are due to the fact names are messed up on them.
Block 13 - completed as of July 2014

We are currently working on Block 14
This is a work in progress, so please be patient with us, as we try to get as much information on each person, so we may help others find their family. Suggestions or SAC's on memorials are welcomed if you have information that we may add.

We have taken the time to look up information such as, death certificates, burial information, funeral home records, and sometimes, even obituaries. We do not know anything else about these folks other than what we post.

Memorial Owners: You can help do your part in helping us by filling in the info we send to you in SAC's/Suggest a Correction or on Your Contributor Edits so please remember to check it often.

Thank You

Thank you so much for creating the memorial #106608912 for John Bertie Smith, a dear cousin. My granddaughter has requested an edit linking him to his parents. Again, THANKS!

I was wondering if you have a picture of her grave? Was there a headstone or marker? She was my Grandfathers sister. Are there anymore Coopers around her or maybe Richardson? Thanks for your help.

Virginia K Smith Claiborne,
Can you tell me if you have Virginia K Smith Claiborne Hart on your abstracts? According to her death certificate, she was buried in Oakwood Cemetery Mar 23, 1978. Her first husband (& father of her children) was Irvin Palmer Claiborne, memorial # 126875555. 2nd husband was R B Hart(?), death & burial unknown.
If we find Virginia, I'd like to tie her to Irvin Palmer & sons' Palmer Ray "Sonny Smith Claiborne, & Charles Delmar Claiborne, both buried in Dallas Co Texas.
Thank you,
Paula Claiborne

Information is always welcome, was at her funeral as she was in the family, but that was a LONG time ago (I was just over 5). Had a hard time finding where she was buried. Thanks
