Map to Gaines Cemetery


"The earliest grave is that of James H. F. GAINES, who died February 1, 1894. The cemetery is well maintained. There were only one or two tombstones that were not readable. The cemetery is still active, with several recent graves. There are approx 300 gravesites laid out in thirteen parallel rows. The survey did not include graves (old and new) that did not have markers."

Corrections submitted by Dan Erwin, May 2005. Thanks Dan for the corrections!

'I've been visiting the Gaines Cemetery site regularly for the past several months. More than 50 of the graves belong to relatives by blood or by marriage. I've noticed the following errors that you may want to correct:

The last name "Dutlovi" on 4 graves should be "Dutton" I am related to the Duttons.

James M "Irwin" should be "Erwin"

"Wydene Irwin" should be "Wylene Erwin"

He is distantly related and she taught  me in Elementary School.

Thank you very much for posting this web site."
