    Oak Grove Cemetery is north of Decatur. From Decatur go north on Fm Rd 51 about 6 miles. Turn to the left at the D Bar H gate. The cemetery is about 3 miles to the west down oil field roads. The gate is locked and you will need permission to enter.
  
To enter the cemetery from the west you can go north on Greenwood Road and turn right past the small lake and dam onto PR 2432. Again the gate is locked and you will need permission to enter. The cemetery is on a hill to the east of this small lake. The land is now owned by Robert and Terry Cocanougher. It was owned by Dean Hancock, and before that by the Cowen’s.
  
At one time the Oak Grove Church was located by the cemetery. The church is now south of the cemetery on Greenwood Road.
  
In December 2001 the cemetery was fenced with a chain link fence and had some tall grass in it. We started from the gate on the southeast corner and found 42 headstones as we went toward the northwest corner. The headstones are numbered as we came to them. Another 4 records are added from an earlier listing.
  
Thank you to Sue Cocanougher for taking us to this cemetery.

 

    On the same ranch, about 2 miles east of the cemetery, is a single tall headstone on top of a hill. It can be seen from the oil field road as you approach from the east. See pictures below.
  
This headstone is number 43 in the data. It says:

John Holden
