This is the first of three transcriptions of the tombstones in the White Church Cemetery.  Many of the oldest graves in this section are hard to read.  I tried to provide as much information as I could.  However, there are some graves that were either unmarked or illegible.


I have family connections to many of the people buried in this cemetery, and I would be happy to share any additional information I might have. - Debbie Fisher
