While taking the survey, this cemetery was divided into 5 sections: Center, North, East, South and West. Just prior to publication of the year 2000 book on cemeteries we returned to this cemetery and prepared the accompanying map. We were on this site on 30 Jan 2003 to take the GPS Coordinates. We also did a re-walk of the cemetery on 2 May 2004 adding new burials and noting marker changes. An update was accomplished in the summer of 2010 by Richard L. and his wife Gertrud (Rodemers) Hankins. Richard prepared a new map of the cemetery which includes the newly formed area called West Extension. With their work they were able to add burials to a current time and to add marker changes made since 2004. As of 12 Jul 2010 this cemetery had 977 documented burials.
