This undertaking was started Memorial Day Weekend 1998 as an Eagle Scout Project for myself as a member of Troop 355. As always, the Boy Scouts assisted the American Legion with posting flags next to the grave sites of Veterans. The only problem was that over the years it had become difficult to determine which graves were those of Veterans. Markers had been pulled, stones overturned, and sometimes there wasn't any mention of time served on the headstone. So this is what was derived from that weekend. Hopefully, this guide will be handy to all those who seek a loved one who has fallen. This reference is very complete and I apologize if I have made any mistakes. Special Thanks to:

Hopefully, through this project, all the grave sites will be marked or recognized in some manner. If you know of a grave that does not have proper recognition, please contact the local American Legion, the VFW, or the VA office at the courthouse.

Please note: This index does not include the 8 veterans buried at Archer St. Cemetery (Pioneer Cemetery). Veterans are marked on the maps with an X, this shows which lot a person is buried in, not necessarily the specific grave. If the person is buried without veteran status marked on the headstone or an equivalent marker, then an *** will appear under the Marker Section of the index.
