The graveyard on the church property has about 200 nineteenth century graves and is of significant interest to historians and to descendants of the persons buried there.
Since many visits and inquiries were expected during the anniversary year, this website was established to help satisfy the interests and meet the needs of visitors and inquirers. It is a work in progress and information will be posted as it becomes available and organized.
This self-guided walk through the graveyard covers twenty significant and interesting grave markers.
