There were small markers or footstones as follows:

F D (Franklin Deputy)
N A D (Nancy A Deputy
S E D ( Sarah E Deputy)
S T D (Sherman T Deputy)
J S (Joseph Scott)
A G (Abner Gould?)
Wm D (Wm Deputy)
Wm C D (Wm C Deputy)
G J D ( Grant J Deputy)
J D (Joseph Deputy)
E J S (Eliza Simonds)

All of these smaller stones are by larger stones with the exception of A G which is beside E J S so we can assume Abner Gould is buried here.

I have pictures of all these stones with the exception of Solomon W and I probably have one of it since I have two that are completely illegible. My brothers made these pictures in July one summer and the cemetery was so overgrown that you could barely get in plus the mosquitos and chiggers were about to eat them up. Under those conditions we did not attempt to determine in what order the photos were made but I have been able to match them up with the list. It is sad that this cemetery is in such bad shape. There were possibly more graves there that we will never know about.
