There are over 100 gravestones in this small cemetery, but probably fewer than 50% of them are readable. Many are broken, many are just weather worn, and many appear to be missing entirely.
If a name/word is not completely readable, I will add a question mark, ?, at that point to indicate that fact.
I will add gravestone readings and update dates untill I get all of the stones read, then I will state that I am finished.
