Oxford Cemetery

The Oxford community was founded in 1880 when Confederate veteran A. J. Johnson came to Llano County and laid out the townsite. In 1881, a burial ground was established near this site for the use of the families of Oxford. Burials date from 1883, although some of the graves that were moved from a neighboring cemetery bear earlier death dates. Among those interred there are the town's founder, A. J. Johnson (1832-1924), who captained the Packsaddle Mountain fight, an 1873 battle that drove raiding Indians out of Llano County.

Oxford Cemetery Forum
"I havn't been able to research how or why this happened, but inside the Oxford cemetery there are the graves of twins: Lola and Ida Maupin. [ Being twins they ] were naturally born on the same day (November 1, 1891), but they also died on the same day (November 7, 1898). I just thought you should know. I visited the cemetery at night and it is truly a creepy place." - Will Creedle
