Introduction ...

We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based upon a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. We found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere. We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site. Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

<2>This location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.

- Return to Citation

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that begins in . A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- ) to Point B.

- Return to Citation

<4>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been unable to verify its accuracy, but are confident that we have placed the marker within a few hundred feet of the actual location. Typical reasons for being unable to verify a location is that it might be either overgrown or on private property. A physical visit will probably be needed to verify the location.
