Section and Row definitions. 

For reference, arbitrary sections were defined for this listing.  The “West” section lies within the bounds of the “U” shaped access lane and the “East” section lies along the east edge of the cemetery and the service road.  Rows were numbered in both sections beginning on the west side of the section.

Within the “West” section and along the county road on the north side of the cemetery (slightly to the west of center) lies what was know as the “Spillman on Mount Moriah Cemetery.”  Burials in this section, listed separately in the UNION TOWNSHIP DIRECTORY OF CEMETERIES, published by The Gibson County Historical Society, Inc. (1996) have been identified in this compilation with an “S” suffix on the row number.  There presently is no visible physical definition of the boundaries of this section.

Row numbers within the “West” section are “difficult” to assign due to burials along the south side of the cemetery not being in alignment with those in the greater part of the section; also some rows in the north-center are not well aligned.  Therefore, assignment of row numbers is somewhat arbitrary.  This work attempted to maintain a complete north/south row, even when a section could arguably be assigned to an adjacent row.
