  These tombstone photos were taken with my Great-nephew, Jorden, whom you shall see in some of the photos. They were also taken on my older camera, and some of the older tombstone on it came out better in black & white than in color. You see some in black & white and others in color.  They all have names under them to identify them by more easily, with some tombstone having taken all side of them. Thumbnails in the photo-gallery. Click on them to open in own window for a bigger picture.

Some are in black white. they were taken on my old camera and turned out better in black & white than in color. All photos have names if could be read. some could not read but did the best I could. Hope these will help out someone. Not all of the tombstones got taken that day. Will have to make a return trip. Thanks!!!!!

Below are some over views of different parts of the cemetery. You can tell when you enter you are entering from the back as all tombstone face West.  some of these below were taken from the back of the cemetery. and some from the middle. Click on them to open in a bigger photo.
