A daunting task;
This cemetery at one time was in tiers and at some point
in time, the stones were all removed and the land plowed flat, so
this does make for a lot chance for error; the old records we had
online were found to have many errors and we hope this new record
will help you find your kinfolk. There also were removals from other
cemeteries buried here. As with any old data, this material to be
used only as a guide and is certain to still have mistakes.
This is a very large file so be sure to use your EDIT / SEARCH feature
and all surnames will also show in the search engine on the main
GenWeb page, As with any family, a lot of names are all mixed together.
