The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using using photographs of the headstones (checked against a transcription by Ernie Lasley.)  Notes were supplemented with marriage and census records plus genealogy records.  There probably are unmarked graves plus a few unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers.
