There are four parts to this index. Last Name, Maiden Name (Nee), Section/Row, and Maps of Cemetery. The database has been sorted alphabetically or numerically by each heading. You need to look up the last name of your ancestor, in the first one or two parts of the index and read through the chart until you see the columns entitled Row/Lot. You will find that each row is made up of a combination of letters:
The first letter refers to the Section of the cemetery. I loosely based each section on its geographical location, namely:
“C” = Center Section | “N” = North Section | “W” = West Section | “E” = East Section | “S” = South Section | “A” = “African-American” Section (based on historians’ info)
The second letter or set of letters refers to the Row within each section. All of the A rows start with the row closest to the church in each section, and the rows move alphabetically outward. Markers have been placed starting with the Southern-most grave in each row. The “Lot” number starts at the South end of each row.
Example: row WA lot: 3 means: “West Section, Row A, 3rd gravestone from the south (the parking lot is “south” of the church. See Map)
The fields of the database are “Last Name”, “First Name”, “Nee” (Maiden name of wife, if known), “m/d B” (Month/ Day of Birth), “YOB” (Year of Birth), “m/d D” (Month /Day of Death), “YOD” (Year of Death), “(Cross Ref.)” (Generally info as it appears on stone is not in parentheses — other info I discovered through cross-referencing is in parentheses.)
