Notes from transcriber Maggie Rail, Sep 20, 2006, last edited Dec 04, 2010:
“To reach cemetery, drive 1 mile west of Winona, on Endicott Road. Cemetery is on the right or north side of the road.”
“Cemetery was established Oct 14, 1907, with the earliest death in 1896. Stones were very clean as was the whole cemetery. It has no grass, probably due to lack of water, but the cemetery committee keeps it very well maintained.”
“I compared my reading with a previous record completed in 1973, by Mary Harwood and Lorraine Cook. An asterisk * follows the three records obtained from their work, which I found no marker or stone for.”
“This cemetery has the east side of it on a hillside, the west side is on level ground, so I kept track of the sections and labeled them that way. A road runs in from the entrance between the two sections.”
“I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 08, 2006, using my digital camera. I have a photo of every existing headstone.”
