Cyndy,

Quite a few of the stones have been photographed and transcribed on Find a Grave. Check there first.

The records for the cemetery were burned in 1941 and the local sexton recreated the burials by reading the stones. If there was not a stone or it was not legible in 1941, there is no record of that person's burial.

There is a local person who has what records there are. I will send you their contact information if you send me your email address to gillihe@swbell.net. Try Find a Grave first, you may find what you need there. You might in fact be able to make sense of some of the stones that are only partially decipherable.

I was looking for a burial in 1873. If there is a stone, it was not reable in 1941 and certainly not now. From the obituary, I know the date and place of death. I will just have to satisfy myself that she is buried in Magnolia even though there is no stone to bear evidence.
