Many of the graves are listing on that central monument for the Oliver & Harwell families are labeled on the big monument 7227-7234 on six sides. The graves are then marked by small round top head stones spanning out north and south in both directions up & down the row. Some of these graves are covered by rock vaults and some not. In the next row eastward there is a row of Rock vaults that are not accompanied by inscribed stones. I presume these are older graves in the center of the cemetery added there prior to about 1850 and without the use of inscribed stones.
