Visitors to Oak Grove will enter through the archway shown here which was given to the cemetery by Miss Eugenla Moore in memory of her sister, Myrtle, her parents and grandparents. Her grandfather, James Moore, gave the land for the. Oak Grove is located in a pasture high on a hill overlooking a valley and Comstock ranch were the old Comstock stockade was located. The Comstock is also noted for the first election there and Oak mill established by Miss Moore's grandfather. In the accompanying picture the valley where the above historical events took place is in the background, while Carl Washington checks the pedmtrt00 gate. Still in use, the old cemetery is very historic with many old stones as well as being very beautiful and offering a won- derful view. Markers there date as early as 1873, 1875 and 1877. The 1973 marker is believed to carry the name of Lucy Lemmon. One small marker carries an inscription which could bring a lump to anyone's throat. It reads simply, "Pearl. Her last words, I'm going to Jesus and Papa." The old cemetery is just off the old Oregon Trail two miles east of Oak. Looking south one can see the monument that was erected in 1912, commemorating the event of the Oak Grove Massacre which took place on August 7, 1964. The cemetery now operates under a cemetery association which maintains the grounds. It will be considered one of the many quiet and beautiful cemeteries for Memorial weekend visitors. i !
