Year 2000 Updates


In producing web pages based on Mr. Smith's cemeteries book, it was necessary to alter the format. Most notably, the original entries for most cemeteries were in a stacked format and presented in columns. I have used a linear format for these web pages, which allows more entries on a screen and reduces printing length. In typing his original manuscript, Mr. Smith occasionally alternated between the left and right columns. The web pages have all left column entries, then all right column entries. One result is that family groups are split in some cases. There was no easy way to avoid this problem. Mr. Smith's original page numbers are noted to help people using the indices. Crosslinks have been added between the cemetery surveys reported in the original volume and the updates here in Volume Two.
