Explanation of column headings

Pg#

This is the page number for this cemetery in my personal copy of the WPA Cemetery Survey for Person County. Since many of the cemeteries have identical names, the page numbers are a way to distinguish one cemetery from another and a way to find a particular page in the large stack of paper. The "stack" is in alphabetical order.

Pgs

Number of pages in the WPA survey for this cemetery.

Cemetery

The name of the cemetery (in order to reduce the amount of space taken by this table, the words "Cemetery" and "Family Cemetery" have been omitted from cemetery names.

Location

Directions or location as given in the WPA survey. The directions listed here are from the WPA directions but are not a literal transcription. I have abbreviated the directions in order to reduce the size of the table.
AA following the directions indicates that this is an African-American cemetery (as noted in the WPA survey).

#G

Number of graves listed in the WPA survey for this cemetery.

Grave

The name associated with one grave from each cemetery is listed here for identification and confirmation for the cemetery. Typically this name will be that of the grave of the oldest person buried in the cemetery.

L

This column provides an indicator to flag those WPA cemeteries that can be located today. An entry of "L" indicates that the cemetery can be located today.

The WPA cemetery survey is divided by towns. The Person County survey is divided into three groups by towns. The towns and page ranges are:
