Notes

In 1967, J. Robert Swank recorded this cemetery and made a notation on his paper that "there are quite a few unmarked graves." Some of the "Remarks" are from J. Robert Swank and were included when he recorded this cemetery. The rows start at the top of the hill (older section) to the bottom (newer section) and from left to right. The cemetery is well kept.
