The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using using photographs of the headstones (checked against an old transcription.)  Notes were supplemented with marriage and census records plus genealogy records.  There definitely are unmarked graves plus several unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers  (There are many small broken pieces of monuments that can not be identified.)  
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. 

Due to the many stones that have been removed from thier original locations , it is not meaningful to assign row locations.   There are stones in their original locations, however there are a large number which  have been gathered in piles and stacked around various trees throughout the cemetery.  Headstones and footstones for the same persons were found far removed from each other.
