Welcome! Just to let you know, most of my family roots are in Kentucky; so, if related, I am more than happy to transfer the memorial pages I have created. I love to reunite families with their loved ones. If needed, feel free to use the photographs I have posted on Find A Grave for your personal ancestry documentation. If so inclined, you can always give credit for the source.
I stumbled upon the following poem and thought it was so succinct in describing why we do what we do. . .
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hallowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

When I compiled spreadsheets for submission to Find A Grave all those years ago I found lists in a variety of places on the Internet. I didn't keep track of where I found them, since they had all been compiled from earlier sources. Some indicated that they were a combination of people "reading the cemetery", cemetery records, and obituaries from the local paper, but most did not indicate any sources at all.
Anyway, I think if you just Google the cemetery name and place that you might find the list I used, or one similar. I hope you are able to find some information that will be helpful in filling in some of the blanks for some of your families.
You are doing a great job adding the exact inscriptions from the markers. Back then there was no Bio field on the spreadsheet submission form (and there still may not be), so in order not to lose any valuable info I put some things in the Note and Transcription fields that technically may not belong there. But as interested people such as you come along, all that is getting sorted out.

I look forward to seeing your photos. Feel free to continue with your edit requests. May I ask what your connection is to the cemetery? You obviously have seen my connection to the Boltons, but my step-grandfather was also a Crenshaw from the area. My great-uncle Bud Cooper's mother was from the area as well.

LOL. Please make the correct correction...
I get a little crazy sometimes.
