"Gone But Not Forgotten"

Original Listing Jan 15,2003, by Rosa Cline

Updated December 16, 2008

Additions by Deana Smith, July 18, 2003


This is a INCOMPLETE- WORK IN PROCESS listing of people interred at this cemetery. My husband and I have begun to transcribe this with headstone photos on Nov 2006, I will update as I get the photos.


I have made an alphabetical listing before the actual transcriptions below. Beside each name I have noted if I have an obit ( obit ) ,

a headstone photo ( hd pic ) , or an actual photo ( pic ), or a newspaper article ( art )   for that person. Below that listing is the

actual transcription of the stones. This listing is in the order in which the photos were taken. So it will kind of give you an idea of stones beside one another.


If you would like me to share with you, or you share extra data please feel free to contact me. However, please have the respect to not

contact me to complain when I don’t have what you request. I will be more than happy to share with you what information I have on the

people listed below . If you would like to send me data on your family or friends buried at this cemetery,

I would be more than happy to accept and add the data into my listings. Please feel free to contact me.


I hope this listing helps these people to always be remembered. To try and help folks to always be remembered when they have

gone on before us is the main reason I do what I do. And helping folks find family or friends in the process is a good plus as well.
