(In his article he states the list came from the DAR indicating they are both the same readings)
NOTE concerning DAR readings: DAR was tasked with certain things to identify.  They normally did not write down children, infants or single individuals.  Their objective was married people and those who served in the military.  That is why many of the readings differ so drastically from other readings done later.  However, some of the DAR representatives “read the whole cemetery”.  Again, they did not use interment or lot records and were subjective at their writings. Please be aware there are dozens of inaccuracies and dis-information from these readings.

** Special thanks to Candy Gilliam's son Ethan for finding these stones for the Ward family plot. Note from Candy Oct 20, 2009:

"the cemetery is in kinda-bad shape.  Oh, it's clean, mowed and looks nice, but most the stones are buried!!  I was amazed at the amount of them that were covered in dirt/grass.  Half the others were leaning up against other stones.  Hardly any way to determine exactly where each person is buried when the stones are in piles.  I need to go back with my shovel.  I had my 9 year old son with me this afternoon and he was a big help in helping me to dig the dirt & grass from around some of the stones with a big stick.   And he also wanted me to point out the HE was the one who found the stone for Isaac Ward.  Isaac Wards stone was completely (and I mean completely) buried in about 2 inches of dirt.  I honestly don't know how he managed to uncover that stone because I had given up.. I figured the stone wasn't around anymore."
