The area of this cemetery is very large, maybe a couple of acres.  One cannot easily see unmarked graves here probably because grounds keepers have filled in the sinks so the mowing would be easier, but there must be many unmarked graves considering this was a church cemetery at one time. Could be that whole families are missing because of the graves being unmarked.
