Cemetery personnel very helpful and attentive. Cemetery very large, in excellent condition and very well maintained (probably the best maintained cemetery I have ever seen). Great place to research for genealogical purposes.

 

All information provided here other than the actual tombstone transcription comes from the Cemetery burial cards that are kept for each burial. These cards are approximately 3 x 5 and contain a great amount of genealogical information. They are accessible by the public with the help of the clerk on hand.
