It's very common for a cemetery to be known by several different names.
If the cemetery's alternate name(s) is known it will be noted somewhere on the county webpage.
Multiple surnames used to describe a cemetery will normally be listed in alphabetical order.
Example: Brown-Jones-Wilson Cemetery (not Wilson-Brown-Jones Cemetery)
Surnames will normally come before given names.
Example: Brown Family, John (not John Brown Family)
Estimated GPS mapping values will normally get you within eyesight of the cemetery.
Google SATELLITE View and STREET View options are also available when using the following MAP hyperlinks.
Find-a-Grave (FaG) notation normally means that tombstone inscriptions are normally available by visiting http://www.findagrave.com/.
