NOTE concerning DAR readings from Karen Heber:
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.
 Names have been added to this list from Linda Ellis who personally walked the cemetery. Those names or dates listed with an (*) were added or corrected by Linda. She can be contacted at
