Please note that this cemetery is in deplorable shape.  It has been neglected over the years and
vandalized many times.  Vandals have broken lots of tombstones and many others are so illegible
you canít get any info off them.  In some cases, there are what appear to be family plots with one
or two stones with names on them and then there are some little markers that just have a first and last
initial.  I assume these would most likely be their kids graves, but canít say for sure.  This was a
horrible cemetery to video tape and then transcribe.  It was very overgrown and full of pickers
and poison ivy.  It many cases, the video did not show the info as good as I could see it in
person so I dictated the info to the camera to make it easier for the person transcribing. 

 

I hope this helps someone find their ancestors. Many of these stones will not be legible for very long.  If you know of any mistakes we made on this project, I would love to hear about them.  If you have
info about other people who are buried here that are not listed, feel free to Click Here to Contact Me and I will try to include them.  You may have info that is no longer legible.
