Note: The numbering is not any reference to the cemetery records, if any exist at all.  Instead, the numbering is only a count on this alphabetical list.

There are 31 unmarked stones, including one grave with a Veteran's flag of World War I 1917-1918.  

 Copy was likely made in late 1960s or early 1970s.

To benefit from two readings, please compare this list with one made by in 1976 by Glenn W Mounts for the cemetery chapter of the book "Buffalo Township 1776-1976 Washington County Pennsylvania" (page 126) located on Carol Mounts' website at:
