The original transcriptons taken from the headstones was likely the work of Anna Hudelson in the late 1950s or 1960s.  This cemetery has suffered extreme destruction of the headstones since that time (see photos below.)  However, many of the fragments can still be indentified thanks to existence of the old transcription.  There were additions made not found on the old transcription.  (DLE, 25 Mar 2010.)
