I visited in May 2001, took pictures, and transcribed the inscriptions. To maintain privacy and courtesy, persons recently buried are noted but unnamed. I have included below a very rough sketch of the location of the various graves. I am no artist. This drawing is not to scale and is only approximate. Return to Page Menu
