Between the months of
April and June 2003, badly needed stone repairs were done to
this cemetery by Mark Davis.
Patricia Guse Harris reread the stones at that time. Pat informs us that, "#10 (listed below) was not found in earlier reading.
Earlier reading also listed many more names, but they were not found during restoration of cemetery 13 & 14 June 2003.
Earlier reading stated that many of the listed burials came from family genealogies, but no source was given.
At this date we have no definite proof of other burials, although there likely were others. "
Along with the comment above we offer the following CAUTION:
"to date the family genealogies listed below, nor other records, have now been found to confirm all of the burials.
If anyone has a copy of these genealogies and would like to share same, please contact us."
