Explanations of Burials, Maps and Graphs:  
Sharon Snow and Deanna West have been accumulating additional information. Sharon has agreed to be our volunteer historian/liaison for this old beautiful resting place.
We added our first draft of the alphabetical listing as of September 12, 2013. West then read the cards and corrected and added additional information from them and the original listing was greatly expanded. 
Our newest posting of additions was placed on line May of  2014.  Any donated information sent in by viewers will be added as it is received.  The alphabetical listing has expanded from 8,300 graves we already had to over 9,800.
Anyone wishing to donate burial, family or obituary information for this site, please contact  
The newer alphabetical listing coordinates with the graphs and maps that we have added, showing many of the burial areas.  
We are working on getting graphs or layouts of the two newest burial areas of the Brady Section and also the Garden of Gethsemane.

The older Patton Map was drafted in 1950 before the Garden areas were developed.
1972 and forward:  The burial numbers indicated in either the Alphabetical or Burial Area listings for the Gardens,
may not refer to the correct burial number for a particular Garden Area when referring to the old map.  
The older archaic map is great for finding older graves. 

Phase III is commencing; as Sharon Snow continues to go through the sections of the cemetery to accrue more data and photos of the stones.

                      Older Partial Listing of Burials & Burial Areas Initiated in 2005
Partial update September 17, 2013
Use this old listing, done several years ago,  in conjunction with our newer alphabetical listing and the graphs from the 1972 maps.  Since the maps were done, a few additional full and partial plots have been added to some of the sections. Assume that these numbered sections would continue next to the closest number on 1972 map.
