I was changing my spark plugs and there was oil on the plugs, not where the spark itself happens, but around the rest of it and around where I removed them. Oil on all 8. Is this normal? Never had any oil around the plugs before, then again this is my first time messing around with a vehicle this old.

Completely normal for a hemi motor. There is oil that collects around the tubes and when you remove the plugs, that oil is released onto the plug as you pull it out. Hot Heads sells tube seals that will prevent this from happening, but you have to machine your heads to press fit them into it.
