Description:  Oakhill Cemetery is also known as Chester Cemetery & Kistler Cemetery. (The hill next to the cemetery is known as Kistler Hill). PICTURED BELOW is the road next to the cemetery - this wall was washed out at least twice in the 1930's which caused a mess of the cemetery as you could guess. Swain cemetery was moved to this cemetery in the 1940's.

Subject: Possible grandparents?

Hi, I am interested in finding my grandparents grave site. I believe it would either be Cecil Paul Caudell and Audrey, or possibly William Duprey and Coyita Duprey. I was told one of the two was buried at Oakhill. Any help would be appreciated. I tried scrolling through all the pictures to no avail. Please help, thank you.
