The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using using photographs of the headstones.  Kathy Moore's listing of this cemetery, 11 Apr 2002, was used to check this work and is the source of the majority of the "Notes" used below.   There certainly are unmarked graves plus a few unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers.  
If you have knowledge of any other graves which may not be shown below, please drop us an e-mail and let us know.
