Many thanks to all for preserving our history and so generously sharing their labors.

[Note from Sandra:]
I have listed the names, dates and inscriptions on the headstones.
There were several headstones turned over that were too heavy to 
pick up. There were also a lot of places that looked as if there
were graves there but no headstone, footstones, or funeral Home markers.

I have the dearest picture, not in a golden frame
it's the dearest little picture of any by that name.
It's in a little frame that won't ever come apart.
It's a picture of my mother and it's framed within my heart.
She went straight to God in Heaven when her work on earth 
was done.  And I'll always be a happy person to know that I 
am her child.
