NOTE: Henry Bratton told Charles Koenig of a hanging that once took place under the large oak tree that stands on the east end of the cemetery. It seems one luckless young man raped a local women and was found by vigilantes who strung him up to a limb on the north side of that old oak. After leaving him hang for a couple of days, they returned and reportedly buried him where he fell when they cut him down. Henry learned of this story from Roy Craig, who lives nearby.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
