Many, many thanks.  We rely on volunteers like yourself!

We compiled this list of cemeteries primarily from the Government's Geographic Names Information System.   The map coordinates are for those of you with GPS capabilities.  For the rest of us dinosaurs we intend to add street addresses as time permits.

Any donations of cemetery pictures, addresses or condition of the cemeteries would be greatly appreciated.  And would add richness to the data available for other researchers.

Many thanks,

Bill
