EXPLANATION OF DETAILS
For the most part the individual plots average 26' x 18', with a few exceptions as seen on the overall grid plan, and go from every third granite fence post. On the lower fence rail, against the post, I have attached a plastic label giving the code for the front left corner of the plot behind it. Hopefully, these will go unnoticed and remain in place for the use of anyone needing them.
To locate a specific gravestone, look up the name on the alphabetical listing.
Note the location code after the surname.
Example: R-1 P-9 S-5 which means Row-1 Plot-9 Stone-5.
Go to the detail of that plot plan on which you will locate the stone placement.
Refer to the overall Grid Plan for location of that Plot and to pick up landmarks.
[Editor's Note: There is a link to the Grid Plan at the bottom of each page of transcriptions]
Regarding symbols used for details on Plot Plans:
Capitals indicate surnames for adults, and mixed case used for a young child.
< > at base of a stone indicates there is a separate base.
X indicates a foot stone.
|Present condition of stone indicated as follows:|
|S means it is sunken||TF means it is tilted forward|
|B means it is broken||TB means it is tilted backwards|
|BP means it is broken and in pieces||TS means it is tilted to one side|
|BR means it is broken and repaired||indicates Veteran's Flag|
Every effort has been made to insure complete accuracy.
