A tall monument shown above with all the inscriptions resides in the eastern edge of the cemetery with the graves lined up in two or more North/South rows with the grave foot facing west to east, with the various footstones marking them sometimes without much detail. The military markers were a part of the footstone markings of the graves. The Tall monument is too close to a cedar tree that threatens to topple it in time.
