This inventory was done by Marion Garrett Gibbs in 1981
Some names and dates are not recorded as they appear on the tombstones
Complete names and maiden names were added by Marion Garrett Gibbs

Updated in August 2005 and submitted by Carol Couch and Shawn Hughes in June 2007. I am told this is still not a complete listing.  Some tombstones were totally covered up with vines.  If you know of anyone buried here and they are not on the list, please send me the info and I will get those added. 

Some inscriptions I can read, others I can’t. 

Be sure to check the ones in the ‘Note’ part.  They will have a closer view of the dates and inscriptions

This listing is updated as info is submitted


Additions, corrections, and pictures are always welcome!
