Virginia Peterson transcribed the first cemetery records that had been recorded by Dora Pope Worden in the early 1920s.
Those records have been compared to those of Harriet Swick done in 1962 with little difference, and again by reading headstone incscriptions again in May of 2002 by Cathy Knauff and Janet M. Nash.
Thank you Karen Dickson for updates to the Wortman burials.
This cemetery is now as complete as possible.

You are our visitor since Sept. 3, 1998.
Thanks for stopping by!
