Find A Grave Memorial# 121023474 is a soldier who fought in the 17th that I thought you would want to add to your virtual cemetery.

Bob I have an excel spread sheet of the graves transcribed back in 1934. A person walked the cemetery and wrote each one down per section. Im sure more people were buried between that time, but I believe most of the grave markers are gone or buried. So if you start with the first that may help you. I do not live in the area anymore. Im in Texas. My interest in the cemetery is there because my Great Great Grandparents are buried there with a few of their children. I added about 200 people recently and Im sure Ill be able to add about 300 this week. I would like to see that all the people are accounted for in the cemetery.

Thanks for letting me know that there seems to be no marker for Mrs. Gage. I think it would be nice to have a photo of the area posted and maybe you could add a caption that says something like "This is the area where she is buried but no marker found". I found out about Mrs. Gage while working on abolition research. She was important to the cause. I am not related to her though.
Thanks for looking!

I recently added a number of Civil War veteran burials to the St. Mary's Cemetery in Norwalk. These records come from a list of transcriptions made in 1936 of the standing tombstones. Many which I believe are missing or under the dirt. Would like to work with you to see if we can locate the grave stones. There was a stone on these graves at one time.
Thanks so much for the great pic! Pam

Hi again, Bob -
Thanks so much for finding Nancy's headstone. I think this must have been a hard one to find. I really appreciate the extra effort.
