Transcribed for Genealogy Trails by K. Torp

My note: I neglected to note down the volume # of the quarterly that these specific burials were published in, but there is a note that this is a continuation of what was published in Volume 6, #3 - so this is not a complete list of burials. (If anyone has a copy of that quarterly, we'd appreciate having a copy so we can present a complete transcription!)

Original Transcriber's notations have been kept.

This is a transcription of a transcription - therefore it is very important that you only use this as a starting point in your research.
You should always verify all transcriptions against the original source (i.e. the headstone)
