The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using several different sources.  Credit is given to Anna Hudelson who created a listing in the late 1950s or early 1960s, and to the work of Jimmie and Shirley Eads who produced the last known listing in September 1996.  These two works are the source of information on a number of burials which no longer can be located.  There may be other graves which are unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers.   Except for the above credits, this listing was produced from photographs of the headstones taken in August 2009 by Daniel L Elliott.  If you have knowledge of any other graves which may not be shown below, or find typographical errors, please drop us a note and let us know.   email016.gif (1209 bytes)
