Oakland Cemetery relocated to State Hwy 5 North during construction of Bull Shoals Dam
The Oakland Cemetery is located on State Highway 5 North approximately 1 mile South of the Missouri State Line. This cemetery was relocated from another location in Marion County when Bull Shoals Dam was built. A sign at the cemetery indicates it was established in January, 1949. This cemetery also includes relocated burials from the former Yocum, Hogan, and Anglin cemeteries. This is an active and well maintained cemetery, with a Board of Trustees overseeing maintenance and lot assignments.

I was unable to find a COE map of the original Anglin Cemetery, nor do I know its original location, although both the Baxter County Cemetery Book and the sign on the pavilion at Oakland Cemetery confirm that the Anglin Cemetery was relocated here as well.
