NOTES

Adult unmarked Grave slab is flush to ground and next to road

Small Grave is marked only with Bricks

There appears to be several depressions of unmarked graves throughout the graveyard

I know of one very young child of Fleeton Jenkins and Estelle Oakes that was buried in the far corner from
the gate one late rainy evening in late 20s.

Beggs & Beggs in Monticello seems to have handled most of the burials.
