The file I just sent you (Now shown on this website page)  is a complete reading of all stones as of this afternoon, when my daughters and I went to the cemetery and collected info from every stone. In the old file, there are mispellings, many missing stones. Also, the new inventory includes all of the stones placed between 1960 and 2001.
