(1) No Monument
(2) Headstone dates incorrect


The NW corner of the cemetery is chained off with a monument reading: "In Memory of the Civil War Veterans Laid in this Plot" - however, I was told as a child that there are Indians buried in this area. History has shown that many Civil War casualties were buried at Indian burial grounds; so possibly both stories are correct.
