CEMETERY PROJECTS    
 
Have you ever gone hunting for a family cemetery whose location description looked like:
 

"Three and a quarter miles south of the intersection of SH35 and 1st Street about 200 feet east of SH35 in a cotton field owned by Fred Smith."

You might as well head for the county courthouse first because you can almost guarantee that the description was written 40 years ago and that Fred has either died or sold the farm.  Landmarks are gone, untended overgrowth obscures the most careful of inspections from 200 feet away, etc.

The purpose of these projects is to find and document the location of all extant burial sites within the indicated counties including, where available, physical address, MapQuest links, KEY map page locations, links to cemetery catalog pages, photos showing general cemetery conditions and, probably most important, the exact Latitude/Longitude Coordinates (WGS84 datum) for the site.   I hope you find the information useful.
