Select Names For Cemetery

Marietta Daily Times, May 2, 1921

Names for avenues in Oak Grove Cemetery were selected at a meeting of the committee appointed by officers of the Women's Federation of Clubs, held at the home of Mrs. C. H. Turner, 314 Fifth Street, Sunday afternoon.

The committee was appointed some time ago at the request of Service Director A. J. Watson, who was directed by the state attorney general to provide for the naming of the avenues.

Although full authority to select the names was given to the committee, the list will be submitted to the service director before it is given out.  It is the suggestion of the committee that names of the avenues be indicated by low white marble markers, with the names carved across the top.

A fitting ceremony in connection with the formal adoption of the names will be held at the cemetery on Memorial Day.

The committee is composed of the following:  Mrs. Charles H. Turner, Miss Elizabeth Anderson, Miss Maria Woodbridge, Miss Rowena Buell, Miss Willia D. Cotton, Mrs. W. D. Bedilion, Miss Mary Putnam, and Prof. Arthur G. Beach.
