Overview of the Cemetery Project
FREE Military Headstones
Stones can be ordered for any veteran of any war, and the markers are free. When they arrive you will have to find someone to install it, but most Sons of the Confederate Veterans (SCV) and Sons of the Union Veterans (SUV) groups are always willing to install them for Civil War Veterans as well as Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and other groups.

The work here is the efforts of many dedicated volunteers who have given hours of time to the cemetery project.

Our goal is to photograph all of the stones in the county and to cleanup and repair as we go. Work continues all over the county and in more cemeteries than are mentioned here.

Many cemeteries have been located and fenced, hundreds of stones have been uncovered and repaired and dozens of volunteers have poured hours of work into the photographing of stones. Jay Trace has done a lot of the photographing of stones, Ted Roller has done a lot of cleanup and repair and Jack Fly has done a lot of the photographing of stones, cleanup and stone and cemetery repair work.

Thanks to our many volunteers thousands of photos now are available for us to view on the web. This project has been one that has spread all over the county and with a great deal of enthusiasm. Please do not take their photo work and put your name on it.

Please take the time to thank our volunteers for the help that they have given you in your research.
