Section definitions.  For reference, arbitrary sections were defined for this listing (see below, NOT to scale.) 
            Section 1:  Located on the southeast corner of the cemetery directly south of the
                                    access road.  Row numbers were assigned beginning
                                    on the northwest corner and ending at the fence at east edge
                                    along CR 175E.  Very difficult to determine exact row locations of old burials.
            Section 2:  Located inside the service road.  Rows did not always seem to run straight.    
                                    from north to south.  Row numbers were assigned beginning on the northwest
                                    corner along the service lane and end at fence along CR 175E.
            Section 3:  Located on the northeast corner of the cemtery, north of the service road.
                                    Row numbers were assigned beginning on the northwest corner, next to
                                    the tree line and end at the fence along CR175E.
            Section 4:  Located to the west of the other sections as defined by a dividing line following
                                    west access road along the top of the hill.  Row numbers were assigned beginning on
                                    the southwest corner along the tree line and end at the service road on
                                    east.
