Tami walked the cemetery and has contacted the caretaker to get the card index to transcribe.  The files were merged with the files from the Ross' for a more complete search for visitors at this time.  

A few facts about this cemetery:  Section 1 has the oldest burials in it starting in the 1860's and burials are still going on today.  The sexton reports that there are over 20,000 burials.  His records are on cards and do not have all the information that is on the stones.  Some of the burials are not in the card file and as Tami is finding them she is giving them to the sexton.  She is also going through the card file to add people when stones are not available for reading.  The card file from the sexton's records have been microfilmed and the film is at the MTU archives for viewing. 

If you live in the area and would like to help Tami with this project you can contact her by e-mail.  Even one day will be appreciated.  You can also contact Tami by AOL Aim or MSN using the screen name tami49922 and chat. 




We are sorry for the inconvenience but there were some mistakes in dates found in the database Tami is repairing the data in some of the records.  

The link old data is below.
