Oakwood Cemetery

Oakwood Cemetery location map link
(locator symbol on map is )

Oakwood Cemetery is located in the Town of Milton, on the east side of Middle Line Road (county route 59), about 50 feet north of the Barrett Road intersection and 100 yards into the woods via an old driveway, and behind the old farmhouse & barns.

This cemetery is not listed in C.E.Durkee's Epitaphs of Saratoga County. Circa 1940s, Mrs. Payne gathered a partial list of inscriptions and noted "badly overgrown, could not get to many stones; others, could not read." In 1995, Milton Grange #685, with the assistance of the Town of Milton, organized cleanup of the cemetery grounds, thereby allowing the following list of epitaphs to be gathered. In addition to the epitaphs, O.D. Vaughn, of Charlton, was identified as stonemason of the Dr. Geo. H. Benham stone. Photographs taken July 2002.
