Lincoln Cemetary

Please note I'm in the process of adding pictures to memorials you manage at Lincoln Cemt. Pictures were provided to me by Gloria Oldfield. I have also provided edits, ie, Plot locations. Please review and update as you see fit.

Thank you,

George L. Jordan - Duplicate
I saw that you had a duplicate of George L. Jordan in Union Missionary Baptist, was wondering if you would delete it. I am hoping to get out to this site and taking pictures to update this record.

I would also like more information on the preservation you are doing in the other cemetery you mentioned.
