This survey was completed in May, 2000, with the gravesites listed below in actual order rather than alphebetical order. This will sometimes help to indicate family connections not seen in a alphebetical listing. The survey starts in the NE corner of the cemetery and follows rows running generally north to south.

Where a stone or monument had more than one name, a "(" is used in front of each name in the group. Stones which are unreadable are noted as such in the sequence of each row.
