I would like to thank Stephen Oakes for the hard work to put into his Eagle Scout project in 1995. Stephen organized a complete survey of the Old Union Christian Church Cemetery. At that time Stephen worked cooperatively with the leadership of Old Union Christian Church. He, along with his volunteers, did a complete land survey of the cemetery. They also worked to clean-up the cemetery grounds and rebuild the wood door entrance to the storage building on the property. They took records of the stones and some photographs. Many of the stones at that time had been removed from their original grave locations and piled together on several areas. Stephen and his volunteers transcribed each stone and placed them on the ground, face-up so they could be seen by cemetery visitors. At the time of my research many of these markers are no longer visible as they have sank into the earth. Very little maintenance is done at this cemetery, mainly mowing. If it were not for the work of Stephen Oakes, myself and other preservationist, these markers would have no record of ever existing. I have been given permission by Stephen and his parents to use his research and provide copies of his work and pictures on this site.
