Section and Rows
Cemetery is in a rectangular area bounded by a service road on all sides.  The majority of the cemetery consists of the original plat and is herein referred to as the "South" section.  Along the northwest part of the South section are a few newer burials in an area called the "North" section.  Along the south edge of the original plat is a new section referred to as "South/NLA" -- very few burials here at the present time.

Rows were numbered beginning at the east side of the cemetery and are numbered the same in each section. (as if there was no section divisions.)

1726  View from the west side of the cemetery.
1852  Veteran's memorial at base of flagpole.

Transcriptions taken from the headstones photos and a prior listing (author unknown.)
