Gandy Cemetery is quite small. It is enclosed in a chain link fence and is located on top of a big hill and surrounded by houses. It is very neat and well taken care of. There are some missing stones as well as unmarked graves. It is an old cemetery but still very much used. I was assisted in compiling this listing by my mother, Ruby Marie Bash Jenkins. Hopefully, all transcriptions are correct. The "old" stones really are a test. The following list is complete and current as of June 27, 2004, including the three newest graves which have no stones. I used dates from the obituaries.
