Description

This cemetery is in rural eastern Hernando County and located within the Withlacoochee State Forest Management property off of Croom-Rital Road (north of State Road 50). \n\nThis is one of the oldest cemeteries in the county and contains graves of descendants of some of the Hernando County\'s pioneers/pioneer families.\n\nThe headstones are old and some are now illegible. \n\nThe original deed to the property for the cemetery reads as follows: \"Between Charles Giddens and Sally Giddens, his wife and Seth H. Giddens, Issac N. Talley, J. Frank Hall, Isaac Giddens and Mason Noble the lot hereto be used for burial purposes, lying southward from my house and more particularly described as follows, to wit-to be held in trust by said parties of the second part, and their successors, as a burial ground and for purposes of burial only.-- the said parties of the second part having authority, in case of the death or resignation of any one of their number--such choice, the said parties of the second party to hold and exercise all rights usually belonging to trustees,-fence and care for said lot, to grant permission for burial therein, to assign place and location for such burial, etc.etc. containing one acre. To have and to hold said land and premises, with the appurtenances, to said parties of the second part and their successors forever.\" Signed on the 6th day of October 1890.\n\nOriole was a town in Hernando County alongside of Oriole Lake and about 1 1/4 miles from the Withlacoohee River. It was settled in 1884 by J.A. Clarkson Jr. The population of the town at one time was around 100 people. It became a ghost town by the end of the 1800\'s.
