Oakes Cemetery in "the Pocket", near Edmonton, Metcalfe Co.,Ky. My Uncle Belvidere Hubbard took me to this cemetery. Copied by Lillie Rackley, May 3, 1990.

This cemetery is located between the Sulphur Springs Baptist Church and Pink Ridge Baptist Church. Going from Sulphur Springs Church, the road is on the left, in front of Wade Cassady's barn. It is on the old Marion Oakes farm, now owned by Carl Jeffries (May 3, 1990). After turning left in front of Wade Cassady's barn, go into "the pocket" about 3 miles. On the way in, about 1 mile from beginning of this road, there are two graves up on a hill under a big tree, on the right side of the road. They are:

At the Oakes Cemetery in "the Pocket", there were 41 graves, 24 with names on stones. Sorry, I didn't copy all of them, wish now that I had!
