Click on one of the cemetery links above to browse a cemetery, or locate a specific burial listing by looking up its Grave Number and Cemetery Name in an Index linked at top. There are no cemeteries numbered 70515 or 70520. Hale left 15 blank, and 20 refers back to Mt. Parnassus. The cemetery listings include not only names and dates, but often detailed military information, maiden names, spouse's names, and parents' names.
The Hale survey did not attempt to make transcriptions of gravestones, but rather to collect data. The survey did not include epitaphs, and did not collect dates or even years of birth. It noted date of death, and age at death. Estimated year of birth here is simply a calculation from this data. Beyond that, the data collected appears to be remarkably accurate and complete considering the size of the project.
The graves in the cemetery listings remain in the same order in which the cemeteries were originally surveyed (which answers the question - why are none of the cemeteries in alphabetical order). This benefits the researcher in that it makes it much easier to find the physical location of a gravesite. Once you figure out where the survey started, and what direction they continued in, finding a specific gravesite becomes a matter of following the rows.
Click on the "Printer-Friendly" link above to bring a copy of any survey list with you to the cemetery. You may also want to print out an alphabetical listing of the cemetery, especially for larger cemeteries, as you can look up any gravestone to figure out where in the survey you're standing. If you have a laptop you can save printer paper by simply saving the pages to your hard drive. Use "File", "Save as..." or "Page", "Save As..." drop-down menus in Internet Explorer.
Most of the cemeteries were surveyed by two workers (G.C. Johnson and L. Hayden Pratt). Most were finished in a day or two, with each surveyor taking on a section of the cemetery (left/right, front/back). There is not much more information than that given in the surveys. Cemeteries here are separated not only by surveyor, but also by date surveyed or any change in location.
