Long Description:
Oakhill Cemetery, also known as Bethel Hill, is located on 2760 Road, south of 1190 Road, west of the town of Minco.

It is easily missed as it sits a little above the roadway, amid tall grass and foliage. The area is surrounded by barbed wire, and there is a rusted iron pipe entrance with no name shown.

The tall grass hides most of the headstones, with just a few of the taller ones showing. The cemetery was established in 1902 and was apparently used until 1922, with the exception of one more recent burial in 2000. Find a Grave shows 18 burials between 1902-1910, and 5 burials between 1911-1922. (A total of 24 burials).

At the southwest corner of the cemetery is a granite marker commemorating the cemetery. It is engraved "OAK HILL CEMETERY / 1902 - 1922 / In memory of..." and the names of those buried up to 1922.

Headstones for: Edna F. Forbes, Viola S. Forbes, infant dau of Wesley & Clara Forbes, Mary AP Forbes, Mary Ruth Johnson, WF & EJ Raymond, and Rose L. Wilson.
