Little Cemetery: Inventory of burials

Inventory of names transcribed from grave markers in the cemetery

March 17, 2010

by Terry Thornton

The following inventory of those buried at Little Cemetery was transcribed from the grave markers found in the cemetery on March 17, 2010. Each grave marker was photographed and the names were transcribed from enlargements of those images. A link to all of the photographs is provided. Researchers are advised to view the images to determine accuracy of names, to extract complete dates, as well as to determine relationships of individuals.

No claim is made that this is a complete list of burials at Little Cemetery. In fact, it appears that many more burials there are in unmarked than marked grave with readable stones. Further, many small broken markers are lying flat and covered with a thick layer of leaves. Additional markers may be found beneath the forest rubble.

The inventory consists of surname, given name, year of birth, year of death, name of cemetery, and image number of the grave marker photograph. Material inserted is included in brackets; nod means "no other date"; nd means "no dates"; and abt means "about." Click the image number to view the photographs filed at Flickr.
