Ferguson Addition

The Ferguson Addition is from land owned by Fred and Rena Ferguson. It is on the north side of the Seceder Cemetery. The Ferguson Addition measures 65 Ft. south to north and 72 feet east to west. Allowing 5 feet width for each lot/grave would mean there are 13 lots from north to south. Allowing 11 feet length for each lot would mean there are 6 rows of lots from west to east. NOTE: the western-most row (No. 1) is 15 feet long or deep.
