The Cemetery records include various family plots and inform researchers about who owned them, the date the deed was signed, in some cases who the deeds were passed on to, as well as the various family members buried within the plot. The majority of the records detail the full name and the date of death of the individual with birth dates and age occasionally included. A full layout of the cemetery and the orientation of plots is included at the end of the source.
