The First National Flag will fly at the Comanche County, Texas Courthouse the entire month of April 2014, by a unanimous vote of the County Commissioners Court. They are paying tribute to those brave soldiers who defended their Constitutional rights and homes from invasion. The South has been grossly misrepresented by the currently fashionable, politically correct, but factually wrong history, that the war was only fought over slavery. Many Southerners have despaired over the “northern” version but the folks in Comanche County are helping stir up a renewed sense of pride in our Southern roots. So join with us Monday, March 31, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - Comanche County Courthouse, Comanche, TX. The First National flag will be raised by members of the 2nd Texas Frontier Camp SCV for the 14th year in a row. After the flag raising, take a few minutes to visit Comanche's Oakwood Cemetery and the a 1903 United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) Monument. The 2nd Texas Frontier Camp keeps a Battle Flag flying hig ...

Sixty-one years ago today, January 1, 1953: (Hank Williams) Hiram King Williams passed away. Hank was originally buried on January 4, 1953 in the main part of Oakwood Cemetery, but his body was moved to its current location (Oakwood Annex) on January 17, 1953 to a spot that would later be big enough to accommodate the burial of other family members. The move had to be made during the night because there were so many visitors to the grave site.

Upcoming investigation -Forest Park Cemetery AKA Pinewoods Cemetery.--History Forest Park Cemetery was first incorporated in 1897 by a group of wealthy Troy businessmen under the Forest Park Cemetery Corporation,[2] though based on older gravestones, the cemetery had apparently been in use since at least 1856.[1] The original area chosen for the cemetery occupied over 200 acres (81 ha) of farmland in what was then rural Brunswick. Meant to outgrow and even outclass Troy's Oakwood Cemetery, it was originally designed by Garnet Baltimore,[2][3] the first African-American graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.[3] Baltimore planned on the cemetery to offer visitors a park-like experience, complete with statuary, winding trails, and a large receiving tomb near the entrance.[2] The Forest Park Cemetery Corporation went bankrupt in 1914 and the cemetery was never completed to the original plans.[2] The only structure that had been built was the receiving tomb, which still stands today, albeit in a dilapid ...
The Town of Lawrenceville serves as the commercial, governmental, and cultural center of Brunswick County.  Founded in 1814 and named after a famous race horse, our small town affords easy access to the lake, beach and mountains; cities such Richmond, VA, and Raleigh, N.C. are within easy reach with our proximity to I-85 and I-95.   The Town Office and Brunswick Chamber of Commerce have knowledgeable locals ready to answer questions and furnish helpful information with a touch of southern hospitality.  Visitors are encouraged to explore the Brunswick County Museum, cheer along side baseball fans at Sonny Wholey Field, thumb through historic war records in the Clerk's Office on Courthouse Square, take in an ArtBank performance, and browse with local merchants along streets on which events such as National Night Out, the Brunswick Spring Festival, Rotary 5-miler, and parades are held. Sites such as St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Oakwood Cemetery, St. Paul's College, historic homes on South Main Street, a ...

Alabama Voices: Cemeteries help keep history alive By Richard Bailey The interment of Mrs. William H. Jones at Oakwood Cemetery early in 1818 laid the foundation for a legacy that later included African Americans. Black History Month provides an excellent opportunity to highlight some of these African Americans. Early burials included slaves like James whose identity would have been lost but for students at Auburn Montgomery who replaced his deteriorating marker. In 1884 Cornelius N. Dorsette became the first black physician to pass Alabama's new medical licensure exam. He was the founding president of the National Medical Association. Alfred Coleman Dungee was the city's second black physician. His son, Alfred Coleman Jr., followed him in the medical profession. Nathan Nesbitt was an undertaker and one of the city's first black dentists. Willis E. Sterrs was the first black physician in Decatur, where he became known for philanthropy. He urged delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1901 "to frame ...

What a great end to the semester! Our chapter completed almost 3000 hours of service throughout the Fall 2012 semester! Curious about what we did for our community? Here are just a few things we've done this semester... We helped people adopt dogs at the Peppertree Dog Rescue, tutored math to children at the Hope 7 Community Center, fed and walked horses at the Saratoga Therapeutic Equestrian Program (STEP), set about thirty headstones at Oakwood Cemetery, helped residents of Schoharie move furniture and clean up after Hurricane Sandy, cleaned up parks and trails around Troy, and helped raise money for good causes like the Children's Hospital at Albany Medical Center and child cancer research.

I have discovered some information that might be one of our relatives. Charles Spencer Jones, my great-grandfather, had a brother named Frank who was born in August of 1888. The family lived in Shawneetown in 1900 when he was 12, and his older brother (Charles Spencer) was born in Shawneetown so I had assumed that Frank was as well. I found, in the World War I draft cards, a Frank E. Jones, born August 12, 1888, but his residence in 1917 was Mount Vernon, Illinois, which is about 50 miles directly northwest of Shawneetown. There are no other Frank Joneses that come close to matching ours. I believe Uncle Allen told me that Frank was in the military. This Frank Jones from Mount Vernon, also died in Mount Vernon on May 19, 1950 and is buried there in Oakwood Cemetery. I need to find out if anyone in the family knows anything about "Uncle Frank." I am only assuming that the Frank from Mount Vernon is ours, but I am looking for more concrete information - stories, etc. I know the family spread out. Co ...

The grave tender Betty Stone December 1, 2012 Over in neighboring Montgomery, Ala., lives a young man with cerebral palsy who has earned a bit of local fame as "the grave tender." Not just any grave, but that of country music legend Hank Williams and also that of his wife, Audrey, at Oakwood Cemetery. Terry Faust cares for the graves about two days a week and works at the Montgomery Hank Williams Museum another couple of days weekly. The curator of the museum is Beth Petty, daughter of its founder, the late Cecil Jackson. One does not have to be a country music fan to recognize the name of Hank Williams. In his short life of 29 years, he wrote 128 songs and recorded 225, including 35 top 10 singles and 11 that were ranked at number one. They include "I Saw the Light," which is on his tombstone, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" and "I Can't Help It If I'm Still in Love with You." He died of natural causes on New Year's Day 1953, while on his way to a concert. Over 50,000 people attended his funeral. Terry Fau ...

Today in History: September 7, 1813, the United States gets its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812. Wilson (1766-1854) stamped the barrels with "U.S." for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as "Uncle Sam's." The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam eventually gained widespread acceptance as the nickname for the U.S. federal government. In September 1961, the U.S. Congress recognized Samuel Wilson as "the progenitor of America's national symbol of Uncle Sam." Wilson died at age 88 in 1854, and was buried next to his wife Betsey Mann in the Oakwood Cemetery in Troy, New York, the town that calls itself "The Home of Uncle Sam." Happy Birthday to Garrison Keillor, Gloria Gaynor, Julie Kavner, William Katt, Corbin Bernsen, Shannon Elizabeth, and Evan Rachel Wood

The end of the Bobby Williams story came thirty seven years ago today. Bobby's funeral was held at Berean Baptist Church here in Adrian. The procession from the church to the cemetery was so long that the first vehicles were entering Oakwood Cemetery while the last vehicles were just leaving the Church. The procession went east on W Maumee to Church St. East on Church St to Broad St and then north on Broad St to Siena Heights Drive. From there east on Siena Heights Drive to the Cemetery. Police cars from all over Michigan, Ohio, and even Indiana were there. Every year on Police Memorial Day, we place a wreath on Bobby's grave as our small way of honoring and remembering. The last two people on the Department from that era were Terry Collins and myself. I know we have planted the seeds in the newer officers and the rememberance will go on. It is not how Bobby died that made him a hero, it is how he lived.
