In Mercer County, every so often, there would be someone who would die and the county would be required to bury. One of the funeral home directors would buy plots in Mercer Cemetery, since they were less expensive. That funeral home director was then able to bid low to the county for the contract to bury them. Most likely, a marker was not included in the low bid. There are probably a fair number of burials that are without a marker.
