Sections and Rows.
The cemetery has wooden post markers indicating Lots 1 through 5, with numbered beginnng on the west side.  (There are a relatively few surviving headstones or memorials in the two older sections, 1 and 2.)  For purposes of this work, rows were numbered starting at the east edge of the cemetery in Section 5 and continued to the west edge of Section 3.  No assignment of row numbers was attempted in Sections 1 and 2 due to the scattered nature of the remaining stones.
