Oak Ridge Cemetery's public vault, located at the base of the hill behind the Lincoln tomb, received the bodies of Abraham Lincoln and his son William on May 4, 1865. It would be some time before a permanent burial place would be prepared so the National Lincoln Monument Association constructed a temporary tome halfway up the hillside from the public vault. There the bodies of Abraham and the sons who died before him, Edward and William, were place in December 1865. Father and sons rested there until their removal on September 19, 1871, to the partially completed permanent Lincoln tombs.
