The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using using photographs of the headstones.  Notes were supplemented with marriage and census records plus genealogy records.  There probably are unmarked graves but only a few unreadable markers due to weathering of the stone.
If you have knowledge of any other graves which may not be shown below, please drop us an e-mail and let us know.

Section and Row definitions. 

For reference, arbitrary sections were defined for this listing.  The “West” section lies to the west of the north/south access lane (entrance gate) and the “East” section lies to the east of the service road.  Rows were numbered in both sections beginning on the east side of the section.  Note that rows in the older northwest corner of the cemetery are somewhat irregular and make row assignment difficult and somewhat arbitrary.
