LISTING OF KNOWN BURIALS

The list below contains all the Families for which we have an existing gravestone, or for which we have an obituary.  Click on any family name, and you will see as few as one burial listing, or over 30, depending upon the name.

We know that there are possibly another 200-300 individuals buried in the cemetery, and we'll get more names posted when they are available.  So why aren't there more gravestones?  Erosion over time is the answer.  Early tombstones were made of sandstone or wood, and few remain.  Some sandstone tombstones remain, but all wooden crosses would have disappeared after a couple decades.
