Abbreviations for the Surname Index

 

Note: The following is actually the Table of Contents. The surname indexes were from the back of the book so abbreviations beside the names refer to chapters within the book. For example if your ancestor's name was Johnston and and the abbreviation beside the name was A1, that means that at least one person with that surname can be found in the Milroy Presbyterian Cemetery in Armagh Township. - Cynthia Rosenberry
