Re: Oak Dale Cemetery

In Reply to: Re: Oak Dale Cemetery by Jerry Carr of 826

Our Oak Dale Cemetery book (about 250 pages) was published about two years ago. We have plenty of books on hand, and they sell for $25 (plus media shipping).

Typically the book includes a compiled entry for each person...the info from the stone plus their county death record (if they died in Erath County between 1903 and the 1970s), their obituary from the local paper, and perhaps other records we came across (sometimes a published biography, Confederate pension records, or probate documents). We also include known burials without markers (for instance, someone whose death record indicates a burial at Oak Dale or a burial included on a previous cemetery index).

Alas, your Wm. E. Carr is buried in a marked grave at Oak Dale, but 1900 is too early for a death record and during a period of time when the extant newspapers are spotty. His entry reads:

William E. Carr              Y
10 May 1849 - 7 September 1900

The "Y" indicates the row he is located on (and those rows are marked on the fence railings). There are other CARRs buried at Oak Dale, but I'd be unable to prove they were related to Wm. E. Carr, based on the research we did.

Feel free to contact me about other Oak Dale information, or if you would like a copy of the Oak Dale book.
