One of the most beautiful sites for a cemetery we know of is the location of our own cemetery.  It is up on a hill a mile from the depot in a Northwesterly direction, and overlooks a beautiful valley stretching out before the vision a magnificent landscape worthy the efforts of the artist.  This body of land comprises thirty five acres, very neatly laid off into burial lots with smooth and handsome carriage ways to every part of it.  The great variety of small oaks that are luxuriantly growing indicate the most beautiful name for the cemetery.  As it has not yet been named THE EXPRESS respectfully suggests that our"city of the dead" be called"Oak Hill Cemetery."
