Lone Oak is the oldest cemetery in this section of Lake County.

It was so named because there was, at that time, only ONE oak tree amongst the pines, near the log cabin that was used for both church and school purposes, with a little graveyard beside it. Early settlers in the vicinity of Leesburg first held their joint religious services in the area of Lone Oak in a brush arbor and laid their loved ones to rest nearby. The first place of worship was a brush arbor erected in 1858 when a circuit rider visited the section, and brush shelters were used until the log cabin was built at Lone Oak. By 1870 the churches were using other buildings away from Lone Oak. The land for the cemetery was entered on the records by Dr. J. S. Bauknight for the cemetery and church purposes.

Cremation Arrangements


Cremains may be buried in a regular gravesite (a vault is required), in front of vault, in a bench, or other memorial pieces, or scattered in the St. Francis of Assisi Cremation Gardens. 

Cremation remains can indeed be placed in a columbarium. A columbarium is a structure specifically designed to house cremation urns or other containers holding cremated remains. These structures can vary in size and design, ranging from small niche walls in a cemetery to larger, freestanding buildings within a memorial garden.

Columbarium niches typically contain space for one or more urns, and they may be personalized with inscriptions, photographs, or other memorialization options. Families often choose columbarium interment for its convenience, affordability, and the opportunity for a permanent memorial site.

When considering columbarium interment for cremation remains, it's essential to check with the specific columbarium facility or cemetery for their guidelines and regulations regarding urn size, materials, and any additional requirements. Additionally, some columbariums may have restrictions on the types of items or decorations allowed within the niches, so it's crucial to understand these guidelines beforehand.

Overall, columbarium interment provides a dignified and respectful option for memorializing cremated remains, offering families a lasting place to honor and remember their loved ones.
