NOTE: The above 28 headstones were transcribed on 2 August 1989 and were the only ones visable amidst the knee-high grass and brambles. Several of the headstones were broken and only fragments of others remained, thus making it impossible to gather any of the information once carved thereon. Numerous stone slabs indicated other graves, but time has obliterated any identification which may have been, at one time, painted or carved on their faces.

On a return visit in August 1993, with my husband Alex, to photograph the above headstones, we found that a lot of them had deteriorated to the point of being illegible. In fact, one of the headstones transcribed in 1989 could not be located.

NOTE: When Craig and I photographed the cemetery in the summer of 2005, we photographed all that we could find on the hillside. Evidently some of the older ones were buried in the grass where we did not find them.
