Information submitted by Paul Adcox, who is placing new markers on these graves on Decoration Day 2000. pauladco@hsnp.com

Please note that there are over 300 stones without names or dates, I have heard said that many years ago, the old cemetery association (not to be confused with the current association), came in and replaced all the native stones, that families had placed for their loved ones, with new unmarked uniform stone/concrete markers.  Keep in mind that although these native stone markers may have been without names or dates, they were not all alike, so families could identify their loved ones by the size, shape, etc. of the stone as well as the location in the cemetery.  A lot of these unmarked stones were during the depression when it's all the families could afford to put down. When the families discovered they could no longer locate their loved ones graves because all of the markers looked exactly the same, there was nothing that could be done.
