This list was compiled from more than one source. I combined the list on file at the Newport Library, the list on file at the Clinton Library, the list on microfilm at Salt lake City, and personal readings made by me, Carolyn Schwab, in 1991. Very few tombstones remain standing. I was told that a gate was left open years ago, and cattle ran through it. Most of the tombstones were destroyed. A caretaker cleaned up the cemetery and threw away the broken stones.
Items in parenthesis are from personal notes and files, and do not appear on tombstone.
