by Helen and Charles Burgess

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Just where is Mulch, Virginia? Nestled between Quinton Oak and Rainswood, in Richmond County near the Chesapeake Bay, the Mulch community once bustled with activity. Daily life centered around the post office, general store, school, church, farms, fish factories, sawmills, and of course, the cemetery. The Mulch Post Office no longer exists, but will remain in the precious memories of all the families. With biographies including facts, stories, and many pictures, this book serves as a complete source of relationships and cemetery mapping for Oakland United Methodist Church Cemetery. If your family name is Beazley, Bryant, Burgess, Clark, Davis, Dodson, Douglas, Lewis, or Walker, chances are you have an ancestor buried here. Come travel with us through the hard lives and happy times of our families and neighbors from 1870 to the present.

This is a gorgeous book filled with extensive documentation of virtually everyone buried in Oakland Cemetery.  Each person is honored with at least one photo, bio, list of relatives, tombstone inscription and obituary as published in local newspapers.  The book has the look and feel of a photo album and provides a wonderful way to remember your loved ones.
