The Old Section

The Old Section extends South from the road on the South of the Circle Section and from East at the blacktop road to the survey of 1922 at the West. Burials began here in 1777. Hundreds are unmarked.

Lots were not sold as such. Singe graves were sold. Rows were read beginning at the North and going to the South; Row 1 being along the blacktop at the circle or loop road end. We found half rows tucked in between long rows that extended all the way across; numbering is as accurate as conditions made possible.
