Note: This cemetery survey is a good example of many of the WPA surveys: the directions are probably inadequate! We may not be able to find this cemetery today. Since when the WPA survey was done in 1937 there were only three graves and none later than 1903, the cemetery may have disappeared. If so, the WPA survey is even more valuable.
