Centerhill Cemetery

Contributed: October 2008

Transcribed by Jonell Powell

This cemetery was recorded on March 25,2008. The tombs are not in a good row formation so I started on the left side and recorded front to back as close as I could. The numbering of rows could not be used. There is also a lot of space which I could see no definite impressions.
