Notes:
I visited the Oak Grove Cemetery on 29 May 2009 which was a Friday. 25 May 2009 was Memorial Day and the Cemetery was in tip top condition. Most of the flowers were still on the graves and still looked good. The weather was perfect and it was the time of the day when there were not big shadows but enough shadow to be able to read the inscriptions in the photos.
