About the book & Its Contents
~ from the Dedication & Acknowledgements and Introduction

“This 277 page book plus index & appendix was several years in the making. Over 180 cemeteries and 4,800 names are listed.

One of the fascinating segments of this book are scattered ‘epitaphs’. Make sure you read the complete 7-page Introduction before the rest of the book. Informative but some portions are humorous.”
