      This is a full and complete survey of veterans burials as found in the months of July through November 2011. The burials are in concentric circles which emanate outward from a tall monument with the American flag. Please do not copy this data and post to other web sites as if this was your own research. Although births and deaths are facts and not copyrighted, genealogy integrity suggests you give reference sources where you obtained the data and the source provider, Robert Carter. Any photos provided "ARE" copyrighted and you cannot copy and post to other sites or use them in other ways without the owner's permission. Many of the early burials only had the date of death without any date of births. Some common abbreviations of medals and honors a can be found at the links below:
