The above were all the marked stones I found upon my visit to the cemetery. Another transcription, taken seven years earlier, by Larry & Pat Taylor recorded the following also buried here:

Henry Bohn Gose
s/o Aaron & Nancy Gose
No Dates recorded
Age 10y10m
Note: This is the child listed as Henry H. Gose in RCV birth and death records. Those records indicate he was b. 05 Nov 1856 and d. 05 Nov 1857, making him exactly one year old at the time of his death.

Infant s/o Aaron & Nancy Gose
d. 06 Nov 1857
Age 6y1m10d
Note: This is probably John T. Gose. According to birth & death records his actual birth and death dates were 27 Jul 1854 - 09 Nov 1857. John T. & Henry Gose above died within days of each other in Nov 1857. They are the only children of Aaron & Nancy Gose listed in the death records for 1857.

Also probably buried here either in unmarked graves or graves whose stones have long ago disappeared are the following children of Aaron & Nancy Gose, taken from RCV death records.
