Due to the weathering on alot of the old stones in this cemetery, the inscriptions were transcribed to the best of my ability. Therefore please use alternative proof as to the accuracy of this information. I give no garauntee of complete accuracy on transcribing these. I will be doing rubbings on alot of these stones in the spring of 2003, as there is alot more writing on some of these stones, but they are almost impossible to read.
