The Oakdale Cemetery in New Hanover County, North Carolina has a free, online burial database for Oakdale Cemetery.
“By the mid-nineteenth century, St. James churchyard and the town burial grounds were crowded. This, in part, led to concern over community health in Wilmington. Following the national trend, a group of citizens, organized as “The Proprietors of the Wilmington Cemetery,” acquired a 65-acre tract on the east side of Burnt Mill Creek east of the town limits. The property became known as Oakdale and was the first rural cemetery in the state, an appropriate achievement for the most populous town in North Carolina.”
