At the 2016 meeting a new map of the cemetery was presented.  Glenn Whitaker worked with a company to mark the rows of burials with stainless steel markers, then document all the existing gravesites both in maps and in database format.   This was a HUGE project and is much appreciated!  Links to electronic images of these documents are shown below.

A concrete curb with a family name, level to the ground, must be placed around the plot OR a headstone placed within sixty days to secure the reservation.  There are no guarantees for reservation of a plot without a concrete curb or full-sized headstone.
