  • We went looking for G.G.grandfather, his son & 5 of his grandchildren all buried in the same plot. We got plot numbers from the office that morning so we thought we were in for a good chance. NO such luck, although we had the section No. & Grave No. not too many of the graves were numbered so after walking up & down the aisles for over an hour, we went home.
  • I agree with others. It's beautiful, it's a nice walk. It is well maintained. The grounds are beautiful, lots of flowers. The graves are interesting, definitely makes you appreciate being alive.
