Mace Section

Oakdale Cemetery is located at the end of West Stetson Avenue in DeLand, about 3 blocks west of Woodland Blvd.(U. S. Hwy. 17-92).  The cemetery is bordered by Plymouth Avenue on the north.  The Mace section is near the Stetson Avenue entrance. (Take the left fork inside the gate and you will see the Mace marker.)

John Porter Mace purchased the site for the Mace plot and the section is now full.  Click here for an overview of the Mace section.

I have transcribed the headstone information below exactly as it is shown on the headstones.  The notes are mine showing the relationships of the individuals. Photographs are included of all headstones.
