Fort Graham Cemetery Correction Carole Schreiber

I was searching through the Fort Graham Cemetery list today and wondered if you would want to update a few listings. My great, great Aunt Susannah A.C. (Thompson) Barton is buried there with all of her family which is confusing, but she has been left off of the list and I have seen her headstone in 1996 when I last came to Hill County, so I know it's there.
If you are interested in the missing info, it is:
Susannah A.C. Thompson
