Some of the above records from The Princeton Democrat   Saturday, January 12, 1889, most others per transcribed records from Mark Ellis, 28 Dec 1999, with a few changes to some calculated birth dates.  NOTE:  "Headstone not found" means I could not locate it or it might be one of the "unknowns."

Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Tomassetti for the considerable work that has been done to clear and restore this cemetery.
