Oak Hill Cemetery Tombstone Photo Gallery,

 Peoria Co., IL

Thank YOU!!!

Kate & I took these tombstone photos on Saturday, May 05, 2007, we concentrated on the older section of the cemetery. I hope we got them all back there but not quite sure. There are also a few from the newer section of the cemetery plus, some WW I & WW II Veterans. I tend to try to take the veterans tombstones first. Sometimes I get them all and sometimes I don't. But we try.

 comments, suggestions, contributions are always graciously Welcomed! email us. Thanks!!!

There are 106  tombstone photos in the Gallery; out of 208 tombstone photos I took. some will have more than one view of the stone depending on it. I try to get close ups for easier reading of the lettering. Many of these old stones in this older section of the cemetery have that green junk on it and makes it harder to read them; But can't spend half the day cleaning them either or I wouldn't get any photos taken.  Clicking on the thumbnails will open the photos into their own viewing window. Thanks & have a an enjoyable visit.
