Note: The numbering is not any reference to the cemetery records, if any exist at all. Instead, the numbering is only a count on this alphabetical list.
There are 31 unmarked stones, including one grave with a Veteran's flag of World War I 1917-1918.
Copy was likely made in late 1960s or early 1970s.
