The annual meeting of the historic Oak Hill Cemetery Association was held April 26 at 10 a.m. at the Goliad City Hall meeting room.

Attending were Robin Barnhill, Alyce Ferguson, Janie Von Dohlen, Ansley Von Dohlen, June Pettus, Letitia Robinson and Ray Madison.

Following the financial report, appreciation was expressed to the benefactors who have stepped forward to make contributions which enabled the association to carry out the necessary maintenance and repairs during the past year.

A certificate of appreciation in memory of John Claus Von Dohlen was presented to Janie Von Dohlen and granddaughter Ansley Von Dohlen.

It was noted that a confederate marker has been placed on the grave of Benjamin Button Fly. His family has done extensive research and has detailed information on its ancestor, who was a major in the Confederate Army and who personally started and led two regiments of troops.

The cemetery association would also like to express gratitude to the White Family Trust for its gift for the upkeep of the cemetery and also to the city and county workers for their continued cooperation and help with cemetery needs.
