JCGS INDEXES:  1985 and 2006

SOURCE OF INFORMATION: JCGS members compiled an index for the cemetery in 1985. This information came from a combination of walking the cemetery and funeral home records. In 1985 no distinction was made between information found in the records as opposed to seen on the walk through. In 2006 JCGS completed an update to these records: The cemetery was walked, making note of those with markers and any information contained on the markers as entered in the index. The current index combines all the work done in 1985 and 2006.  As is true with all indexes that are a compilation of records, errors may have occurred. It is suggested that you verify the information.
