Couch - Sykes Cemetery

The location of this cemetery is Country Road 620 & 646, in Finney, across the railroad tracks on a high hill. I was up in the cemetery on July 9th and took pictures of the tombstones. This is the information from that visit, with a description of who the people were, if I know. I tried to give the whole name of the person, if I knew it, even if it wasn't on the tombstone due to the fact that some people have had some confusion with some of these names.
