|Diane||M Oxford at Oxford Bend|
Alvin, I have been looking at all the great photos of tombstones you took at Oxford Bend. Great job! I have found a lot of connections to my interwoven lines that I have with the Oxfords. I am wondering about the native stone marker that says it is for M Oxford, birth and death unknown. I am wondering if it could possibly say A Oxford? Jacob M. Oxford's first wife was Avy Oxford and she died about 1839/1840. I think it would be likely she would have been buried at Oxford Bend. Does this marker happen to be close to Jacob? Someone put her in Goshen Cemetery in Find-A-Grave, but it doesn't seem too likely to me that she would have been buried there. Any ideas on this? Thank you!

Hi Alvin, this is Diane from the Washington Co. cemetery Facebook page. I was going to add the great photo of Emily Baker's tombstone to her memorial page, and noticed that you had already added another photo! I was so surprised! Then I saw you had added a link to the daughter Lucinda Baker who is also at Oxford Bend. Much to my surprise and joy, there was a photo of Lucinda's marker with her birth and death dates! You must have forgotten you had added that photo of Lucinda's marker! I was thrilled. My question: would you please consider transferring Lucinda to me? My Find-A-Grave member number is 47011892. Thank you so much for finding her and posting her photo.

Are you related to the Oxfords? I noticed you put on a picture of Jacob's sister. We drove around and around that area for over an hour and even tho Garmin led us right to the spot, we couldn't find any way to get onto the land except thru someone's driveway. It really hurt to leave that area without finding him! Thanks for the additional info about the cemetery. I will keep checking back to see who else you find. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you so much! We had given up on getting a picture and then to get one so good! Bless you.

This is nice to hear. I know there must have been more stones beneath the underbrush that we couldn't find. I do remember it was fairly cold the day we were there! I'd be happy to transfer the memorials to you for updating, linking. I'm not related to anyone buried there (that I know of), so you can either transfer them back or not...it doesn't matter to me.
I don't know how to transfer the "cemetery" to you. I can make changes because I set it up. If you want to rewrite the description and send me a new one, I'd be happy to update it.
Thanks for all you do for FindAGrave!

Got it taken care of. Thanks for checking it out.

Not sure what to do here on his death date. June only has 30 days, so he died January 31, 1892, or he died June 30, 1892. I posted the date as June 30, 1892 and explained the problem in the bio section.
