Part III of such burials, starting in 1850's, are now designated as Immanuel West, the earliest burial being that of Margaret Curtin buried 11 April 1883 in area designated as A1-op (Old Part, or in original 40 acres of Diamond Grove.) The following deaths are in a second designated area as A2-op numbers 1-242 and for some reason, The next burials started above A-3 old part, with a new numbering system, which then extended into the new part of the cemetery which 10 acres had been added by deed on 4 Aug 1921. This plat will be labeled as B-1op (old plat), and will then extend into the new ground labeled as B-2np (new part). The stones are henceforth numbered consecutively from 1 to 1330.
