Sections and Rows.
The cemetery plat is divided into six (6) sections:  I, II, III, IV, V and VI.  (Sections V and VI are currently unused.)  Section I is the northeast quarter, Section II is the northwest quarter, Section III is along the west edge of Section II and Section IV is the southeast quarter.  When needed, Sections V and VI will become the southwest quarter, with Section VI along the west edge of Section V.

For purposes of this listing, "Burial Row" of monuments were numbered beginning on the East side of each section.
