Find a Grave Volunteer John Owen reported on 3/12/2010:

"I went up and down each row for 2 hours in the St. James section and read every legible headstone. I have confirmed that it is not there any more. Some of the areas of this old section of the cemetery have erosion and topographical change of several inches of dirt, sediment and grass, so if a marker ever existed, it has long since been covered. The lady at the office told me that back then they buried them in cardboard or wood boxes and did not mark their locations. When the current Cemetery took over possession of all the old headstones they were not provided any more details other than: Date of Burial 9/30/1918 Harriet R Jones, Lot: Single, Tract: St. James, Number: N/A, Liner: Other (means wood or cardboard), Single Depth, Age 79, Female, L Brothers Funeral Home"
