Other comments:   Major work was done by John Morley during the 1970 & 80s to fix tombstones, order & place military tombstones provided by the VA. Cemetery read from front to back in sequence.
   I did not find tombstones of numerous people listed on the Morley/Saxon list, but did photograph all present day remaining stones.  All photographs are on
