Originally buried in William "Billie" Dunning cemetery. Remains from the 342 known graves and the Dunning cemetery gate were moved to Englewood about 1979 to make way for the Lakes projects. The cemetery was "recreated" in Englewood as shown in photo at right. Most of the graves are marked with a standard marker, altho a few of the original tombstones were moved and placed here. Many graves are marked as "unknown".
