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, a very limited survey (48 burials) by Robert E Turman made in 1946, plus genealogy records.  There probably are unmarked graves plus a few unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers.  
If you have knowledge of any other graves which may not be shown below, please drop us an e-mail and let us know.
