Cemetery notes and/or description:
Oakwood Cemetery Annex is located in Austin, Travis County, Texas at 1601 Comal Street, between E. Martin Luther King Blvd and E14th St, east of Oakwood Cemetery. It is owned and maintained by the City of Austin, governing body Austin Parks and Recreation.

Oakwood Cemetery is the oldest city-owned cemetery in Austin, Texas. Originally called "City Cemetery", it was renamed Oakwood in 1907 per city ordinance. Including the Oakwood Cemetery Annex, it spreads over 40 acres and includes sections historically dedicated to the city's black, Latino, and Jewish populations. Paupers were historically buried in unmarked graves on the cemetery's south side. Graves without permanent markers were subject to reburial after a given period. The cemetery dates from the mid-1850s. It may have begun even earlier, as legend states that its first burials were victims of a Comanche attack whose bodies were laid to rest on the same site. The cemetery became a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark in 1972, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 (NRHP Ref #85002297); it's annex was added on October 30, 2003.

The Oakwood Cemetery Annex consists of Sections A-G, with approximately 12,500 burials.
