COMPILERS: This project could not be completed without the help of many people.
SOURCE OF INFORMATION: JCGS members compiled an index for the cemetery. This information came from a combination of walking the cemetery and sexton records, in this case the Masonic Lodge.
- The Sexton Records were extracted and are identified in the records.
- The cemetery was walked, making note of those with markers and any information contained on the markers was entered in the report.
As is true with all compiled records, errors may have occurred. It is suggested that you verify the information.
PHOTO: If the listing indicates “Photo” this means a photograph of the gravemarker is available AT NOT COST. Contact JCGS
