In the “old” part of the cemetery we have many, many unknown and unmarked graves. Most of them will remain a mystery. In Section 10D there is a space to the right of the infant Emma Lee Yett that appears to be empty. After Section 10D was reported, Ermalee Neill called and said that her grandmother, Emma Whitworth Leeder, is buried there. It is comforting to be able to put her name on her grave. Thank you so much, Ermalee, for this information. A family is a wonderful gift.

Section 7D: Julia C. Polansky (1898-1995); Noble Sanders (1921-1995); Robert Curtis Stewart, A2C US Air Force, Korea (Dec. 22, 1927-Jan. 7, 1998); Sidney S.
