Notes

Cemetery records compiled by Shirley Cullers Miller using headstones, field/river rocks, papers of Warren Souder and Lewis Yankey, J. Robert Swank’s 1967 records, and through interviews with area residents. Shirley Cullers Miller noted: Cemetery was referred to as the Thomas Cemetery, but local residents have always called it the Fink Cemetery. In 1967 J. Robert Swank referred to it as the Siever Cemetery and that it was fenced and in good condition.
