Oakridge Cemetery - Vermilion County Illinois

Cemetery Name: Oakridge Cemetery

Location:  Catlin Township, West side of Catlin

GPS Location 40.06691 -87.71680 (link to Google Map)

Description:  Oakridge cemetery was organized in 1868. Before that, there were 2 other cemeteries in Catlin - Jones Grove (which was a family cemetery early on), and Gods Acre Cemetery. The problem was Gods Acre Cemetery was not plotted out, and was very hard to have new burials there - so 2 acres of land was purchased and plotted for the cemetery. It is a well maintained cemetery and still active.

Pictures: I took pictures of EVERY stone in this cemetery in October 2007.

My grand father is buried by a Wonderlin I know the location. It is an unmarked grave. His name is Daniel Cockrell. Is there a way to confirm. I was given this information by a relative who knew him and was at his funeral.

My grandfather is out there somewhere. We want to put a marker on his grave, but we can't find it. Please, if you can find it, will you let us know, it means a lot to us.
Thank You

Allow me to say what a great job you did - taking pictures of the headstones of Oakridge.
I was wondering if you could help me.
I've been told that Alonzo Nowlin and his wife Eliza are both buried here - do you have a picture of their headstone?
They were my husband's great aunt and uncle.

Thank you for your time.

I looked through all of the photos of the grave markers but since my 3rd great grandmother Hannah Sinclair passed away in 1884 I am thinking the marker is probably no longer legible. Is there a cemetery listing by name and location that i can get?
