How to report a possible transcription error

These transcriptions may contain human errors.
As always, confirm these, as you would any other source material.


The following Headstone information was recorded in May 1999.
It only contains the factual data, names and dates. Where two people were listed
on one Headstone and it was readily apparent that they were husband and wife, Husband
or Wife of…. was added in such cases. Family information known to the authors appear
in [brackets]. There are many graves in this cemetery with no markers. If anyone has
additional information to that listed below, please contact us. While every attempt
was made to ensure accuracy, if a discrepancy is noted, the actual headstone inscription
shall take precedence.
