The following list is an attempt to show all known graves, using using photographs of the headstones.  Notes were supplemented with marriage and census records plus genealogy records.  There certainly are unmarked graves plus a few unknown due to missing, unreadable, destroyed or broken markers. 
NOTE:  The prior listing for this cemetery contained burials from BOTH this cemetery and the newer Hazleton Community (aka "New" I.O.O.F.) cemetery.
