*Note: We have searched records and hunted the cemetery for the graves of John S. & Mary Barker Adey. Obituaries all indicate they are buried here in a family plot.

Son Nicholas is buried here with a large area of empty graves next to him but no markers. Also other family members close to this but still no markers.
